GODSMACK Completes Recording New Album

GODSMACK Completes Recording New Album

GODSMACK has completed tracking its sixth album for a late 2014 release. The band's frontman, Sully Erna, took to his personal Facebook page earlier today (Sunday, April 20) to say: "We are officially DONE recording! And this record is BADASS! Haven't been this excited in awhile! Hope you all love it! First single out soon!"

Last week, Erna revealed that the band had laid down 15 songs and was in the process of "picking the best 10" for the actual album. He said: "New record is gonna crush!!"

GODSMACK's follow-up to 2010's "The Oracle" is once again being helmed by Dave Fortman, how previously worked with SLIPKNOT and EVANESCENCE, among others.

GODSMACK drummer Shannon Larkin recently said about the band's forthcoming CD: "So many cool new tunes that I can tell ya it's gonna be hard to narrow these down to the best ones! I know it's been awhile since you've heard from us, but we will make it worth your wait!"

With 20 Top 10 hits on the rock radio charts in 16 years, Erna told The Pulse Of Radio a while back that he's proud of GODSMACK's track record. "You know, it is nice to know that we're creating stuff that's just kind of living on and that does really well in the active rock stations and the hard rock world and that kind of stuff," he said. "So we're in that middle ground. We're not quite as poppy as like AEROSMITH, but yet we're not as dark and metal as, you know, the SLIPKNOTs or the METALLICAs or whatever. So we're kind of like that in-between band."

Erna spent the last few years pursuing projects outside the band, including the release of his first solo album, "Avalon", as well as a starring role in a new horror film called "Army Of The Damned", now out on DVD.
