GODSMACK: 'Speak' Video Available Online

GODSMACK's video for their new single, "Speak" (audio: Windows Media, has been posted online at this location. The band teamed up with Las Vegas-based Count's Kustoms for the clip, which was shot on March 7. It was the band’s production crew who found Count's Kustoms through a random search on the Internet. Frontman Sully Erna and the other members of GODSMACK were immediately attracted to the Count's Kustoms vibe, as the video features the Count's signature custom choppers and screaming hot rods from the shop's ghoulish flair.

"Speak" is the first single from GODSMACK's new album, "IV", due on April 25 via Republic/Universal.

In a recent interview with MTV.com, GODSMACK frontman Sully Erna had the following to say about the follow-up to 2003's "Faceless": "It's a killer record, and I'm really curious to see what the public's going to think of it. It's still GODSMACK — I don't think it's lost the integrity of what GODSMACK has built our career off. The toughness of the sound is still there. But we've expanded a little bit more. After 'Faceless', we started to spread our wings a bit and reintroduce guitar solos and stuff like that. The acoustic record [2004's 'The Other Side'] was a departure and it was very well received. It opened up a new audience for us — a lot more adults were coming to the shows, bringing their kids and having a glass of wine. That gave us a permission slip to take it to the next level."
