The Pulse of Radio reports: GODSMACK will release a greatest hits collection called "Good Times, Bad Times - 10 Years of Godsmack" on November 20. A track listing has not been finalized, but the set will presumably include most if not all of the Boston band's 13 Top Five rock hits, as well as a newly recorded version of the title track, originally done by LED ZEPPELIN. The song heads to radio stations this week as the first official single from the record. There are no further details on what else the package will contain, although it's likely that a bonus DVD and some live acoustic footage will be included.The band will take an extended, indefinite break following the release of the hits compilation, but singer Sully Erna had a message for all the fans that have stuck with GODSMACK for the past decade: "I want to say thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for the support and the love that you've given this band over the years. We're not going away, we are just gonna take a break and enjoy our 10th year anniversary, and kind of recharge our batteries. And then GODSMACK will be back, and we will come back bigger and badder than ever." GODSMACK might play some acoustic shows in November around the release of "Good Times, Bad Times". ANOTHER ANIMAL, featuring GODSMACK guitarist Tony Rombola, bassist Robbie Merrill and drummer Shannon Larkin, released its self-titled debut disc on Tuesday (October 2). The new outfit also includes original GODSMACK guitarist Lee Richards and former UGLY KID JOE frontman Whitfield Crane. ANOTHER ANIMAL is currently on the road with labelmates ALTER BRIDGE.
