GODSMACK Teases New Music

GODSMACK has released a short video teaser for its upcoming album, tentatively due out this spring. The band's follow-up to 2014's "1000hp" will arrive to coincide with the 20th anniversary of GODSMACK's debut LP. The group's seventh studio disc was produced by Erik Ron, who has previously worked with PANIC! AT THE DISCO and SAOSIN.

GODSMACK filmed a video for its new single last Thursday (February 7) at a studio in Los Angeles, featuring cameos from country singer Billy Ray Cyrus and former SKID ROW frontman Sebastian Bach in addition to TV personality Chris Jacobs from "Overhaulin'". The title of the single has not yet been divulged. The clip was directed by the band's longtime visual collaborator Troy Smith.

Frontman Sully Erna told FaceCulture in September that the band's new songs "have a lot more of a commercial aspect to 'em. There's some stuff in there that definitely will service the core fanbase of GODSMACK. But we also felt that it's time to expand a little bit."

Erna added that the band is "gonna try to reinvent a little bit more of our sound, our look, our stage show, and come out with a brand new GODSMACK."

The singer said last July in an interview with Los Angeles radio station KLOS: "I'm a lot older now, I have a daughter of my own, I'm in a good place in my life. I don't have a whole lot to really be stressed out about or mad. And so the music has to evolve with that."

GODSMACK is scheduled to perform at several music festivals this spring and summer, including April's Welcome To Rockville and Fort Rock, May's Carolina Rebellion and July's Rock USA.
