Tour some more, of course. Godsmack has been on a seemingly endless road trip since breaking out in 1998 – and they’re not changing that formula now.

They’ll head for the Great White North in April for at least eight shows beginning April 17 in Sherbrooke, Quebec.

Godsmack will be headlining the MuchMusic-sponsored Loud Tour, with Econoline Crush opening and Canadian hip-hopper Kardinal Offishul serving as MC. MuchMusic is roughly a Canadian version of MTV.

Other cities on the short outing include Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver.

Godsmack wrote and recorded its second album, the current release Awake, in between Ozzfest dates last summer, according to frontman Sully Erna. As soon as the band jumped off the hard rock package, they climbed aboard a tour with Stone Temple Pilots, then moved on to the Anger Management Tour with Limp Bizkit and DMX.

That relentless touring ethic has helped Godsmack develop a large and devoted following – and according to Erna who is known for his Wiccan beliefs, a little good karma hasn’t hurt the band, either.
