Godsmack has released a video for the title track of its latest album, When Legends Rise, which has been the Number One song at rock radio for four straight weeks. The clip was released just before this past weekend’s NFL playoffs, mixing live footage of the band with highlights of pivotal moments in recent football history, concluding with a shot of the New England Patriots’ Super Bowl trophy.

“When Legends Rise” is the second Number One track from the album. It follows last year’s “Bulletproof,” which was also the most-played song at rock radio in 2018.

Singer Sully Erna told us that the song and title “When Legends Rise” reflected the way he was feeling about both his life and the band at the time: “It’s not an egotistical statement more than it’s a metaphorical way of kind of burning it down to the ground and building it back up — a ‘phoenix rising from the ashes’ kind of vibe. And I think that’s the thread that kind of runs through this whole album, is really just a cleansing, a rebirth.”

Godsmack will return to the road next month, first with 20 shows in Europe, followed by a North American headlining tour with Volbeat. The European swing gets underway on February 27th in London, while the North American jaunt kicks off on April 16th in Nashville.

DID YOU KNOW? Sully Erna is a devoted lifelong fan of the New England Patriots.
