Godsmack is teasing fans leading up to their new album release with a series of online videos to show the making-of their 1000hp album. The first episode, hosted by front man Sully Erna, shows the behind-the-scenes of the redesign to the band’s headquarters. One thing Erna says about the headquarters is that it allows the band to improve their art. The tour video shows the stripped workspace, and what the HQ looks like after all the redecorating. Erna also highlights all of the band’s key memorabilia on the walls of the HQ’s live room. Godsmack is out this summer with the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival. The new album 1000hp drops August 5th and pre-orders begin July 22nd.
