GODSMACK Singer Thinking About Solo Project

Launch Radio Networks reports: With the other members of GODSMACK recently recording a side project, singer Sully Erna says he's been contemplating a solo effort as well. Although he's not exactly sure what shape it will take, Erna told Launch it's definitely in the cards. "I've been putting some thought into it," he said. "I actually have some stuff that I'm doing on the side right now. I don't know when I'm gonna kind of unleash something like that, and I don't know really what it's gonna be yet. I have a couple of different ideas, and I'm not sure what and when it's gonna happen, but of course GODSMACK is our lifeblood and we don't have any plans on trying to break this thing up. But, you know, we do want to venture out a little bit and just do some side stuff."

Erna says he'd like to record either a full-on heavy rock album or an old-school blues outing.

The vocalist will publish a memoir in January called "The Paths We Choose", which details the first 30 years of his life up until GODSMACK got signed.

GODSMACK drummer Shannon Larkin, guitarist Tony Rombola and bassist Robbie Merrill's side project, called ANOTHER ANIMAL, is tentatively scheduled to release its debut disc in early 2007. The group also includes former UGLY KID JOE singer Whitfield Crane.

GODSMACK is currently on a headlining North American trek with BREAKING BENJAMIN along as support. The bands play on Friday (November 3) in Madison, Wisconsin.

GODSMACK is touring North America in support of its latest album, "IV" (Four), which has sold more than 635,000 copies in the U.S. since its April release.
