The band’s sixth album, 1000hp, debuted at #1 on Billboard's Rock Albums chart, and at #3 on the cross-genre Billboard 200 album chart.  Meanwhile, 1000hp’s first single and title track has captured the top spot at rock radio.

This marks Godsmack’s sixth top 10 album debut and their seventh number one single on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart. The Boston-based hard rockers will headline the Rockstar Energy UPROAR Festival which kicks off this Friday in Clarkston, Michigan.

Right behind Godsmack on the Billboard 200 this week are Texas-based indie rockers Spoon.  They Want My Soul, the latest from Britt Daniel and company, entered the chart at an impressive number four, tying their previous record. In addition, the album claimed the top spot at independent retail by a wide margin.
