Yo, Boston! Godsmack Day is coming and it's slated for tomorrow! Screw Hump Day. Wednesday is Godsmack Day.
To mark the release of Godsmack's sixth full-length album, 1000hp, out via Republic Records, Boston's Newbury Comics store at Faneuil Hall (1 N Marketplace #336 Boston, MA 02109) will host "Godsmack Day" on Wednesday, August 6.
As part of the festivities, Godsmack will be on hand to sign albums and Boston's Mayor Martin J. Walsh will declare August 6 as "Godsmack Day," in recognition of the band's Boston roots and long success within the music industry. Longtime WAAF radio personality Mike Hsu will introduce the Mayor at 4:30PM.
That's a BFD, you guys!
During "Godsmack Day," fans may purchase the Grammy Award-nominated and multi-platinum group's sixth full-length album, 1000hp, when Newbury Comics open at the special time of 8AM.
The first 500 Godsmackers to pick up the new disc will be granted a wristband allowing them access to meet the band for an album autograph signing after the presentation. They may line up on Clinton Street with the records and wristbands starting at 4PM.
Who in Boston plans to celebrate "Godsmack Day?"
