Earlier today it was revealed that tourmates Godsmack and Shinedown will play the same day at the 2018 Louder Than Life festival in late September, and it turns out that the show is just part of another batch of dates that will carry over from their tour together, which now extends to October.

The newly added dates will feature support from Asking Alexandria on a number of shows, including Greensboro, Fort Wayne, Billings, Spokane, Boise and Portland (Ore.). The tour will now reach more than 40 cities in total.

"We really believe this could be a great moment in our band's career and we plan on running on the road until at least fall of 2019," Sully Erna of Godsmack says. "We love the guys in Shinedown and we all go way back. There is a very strong mutual respect between our camps and we feel that this tour is going to be a must see!" Adds the singer, songwriter and guitarist: "We're preparing ourselves to be on the top of our game!"

"It's all about impact, and making a statement," says Shinedown frontman Brent Smith. "We are creating a show for the fans that is powerful, passionate, and sonically inspiring. The audience has given us a platform to be ourselves, and create something spectacular. That being said Shinedown, and Godsmack will most certainly not let them down. This will be the rock and roll event of the year. In other words 'It's about to get heavy!'"

Godsmack and Shinedown both released new albums this spring, with Godsmack promoting When Legends Rise and Shinedown backing their ATTENTION! ATTENTION! album. Tickets for the new shows will go on sale this Friday (June 8) at 10AM local time.
