Godsmack continues to support its fourth studio set, “Godsmack IV,” which snagged the No. 1 spot on The Billboard 200 when it was released in April 2006. The album has spawned hit singles “Speak,” “Shine Down” and “Enemy.” It follows Godsmack’s 2004 acoustic EP, “The Other Side,” and the band’s platinum-selling 2003 studio release, “Faceless.”

The Boston-based rockers are also busy planning a box set to commemorate their 10-year anniversary. The collection will include Godsmack’s four studio albums, an EP and a DVD featuring mini-documentaries about the making of each album, according to Billboard. The magazine said there would also be some live footage, since the group has been taping all of its concerts since 2004.
