GODSMACK frontman Sully Erna was interviewed for the latest edition of "Box Of Rock" on WDHA-FM 105.5 FM, the rock music station licensed to Dover and Morristown, New Jersey. You can now watch the chat below.Erna last month embarked on the first tour in support of his debut solo album, "Avalon". The CD was released last September and Erna told The Pulse Of Radio why he's just now touring behind it. "Lots of careful planning," he said. "Trying to not make any mistakes along the way. Just trying to make sure that it's set up right, that it looks right when it goes out, that it feels right and, you know, we're drawing in the right kind of audience for it . . . you know, it's very different than GODSMACK is, so it, you know, needs to be kind of nurtured differently. And it's also a development project, so it's taken a little bit more time to make sure all the pieces are in place." The show features Erna leading an eight-piece ensemble band. In a statement, he called the production "a world of beautiful scenery, world cultures, and amazing cinematic visuals that will leave you breathless at times." "Avalon" features flutes, cellos, hand drums and other exotic instrumentation, along with female vocals. Erna has emphasized that it is "not a rock record." GODSMACK's latest effort, "The Oracle", came out last spring. GODSMACK and DISTURBED will headline this summer's edition of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival tour, which kicks off on July 9 in San Bernardino, California.
