Godsmack to release 2003’s ‘Faceless’ on vinyl for the first time

  • by

Godsmack will release their third album, ‘Faceless’, on vinyl for the first time on August 9th. The album features the No. 1 rock hits “I Stand Alone” and “Straight Out Of Line”, giving the band its first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200. Originally released in 2003, Faceless sold 269,000 copies in its first week.

Faceless was preceded by the group’s 1998 self-titled debut record and its follow-up, 2000’s Awake. At the time of the album’s release, lead singer Sully Erna explained, “It’s a bit more musical at times, it’s a bit more melodic, but it’s still raw. It’s still tough. It’s still got that Godsmack edge to it, but it’s not quite as angry, maybe, as the past stuff has been… all in all I think it’s just really, I think, some well written stuff. I’m really proud of it. .. we were in West Palm Beach, Florida rehearsing for this tour and the call came in [that the album hit No. 1] and it blew my mind because we worked really hard on this record and we wanted people to love it and we wanted it to do well. But we had no idea that it would be the Number One album in the country and it’s very gratifying to know that you’re rewarded at times for the hard work you do.”

Faceless has been remastered and pressed on 2LP 45rpm vinyl, and will be widely released on classic black vinyl, with an additional limited edition marble vinyl available as an online exclusive.  Faceless can be pre-ordered on standard or limited edition vinyl – here.
