GODSMACK To Show 'The Other Side' In November

GODSMACK have set "The Other Side" as the title for their upcoming eight-song acoustic album, featuring four new songs and four unplugged versions of album cuts, according to MTV.com. Two of the previously unreleased tracks, "Running Blind" and "Voices", are old songs GODSMACK frontman Sully Erna wrote but never recorded, one will be by DROPBOX, a band Erna recently signed to Universal, and one will be a collaboration between DROPBOX and Erna.

"It kind of has a TEMPLE OF THE DOG vibe," Erna said, referring to a '90s collaboration between members of SOUNDGARDEN and PEARL JAM. "I wanted to do an acoustic record because we've never wanted to put a ceiling on ourselves. We always want to have a different vein to pursue and try different things and not limit ourselves to just being a heavy rock band. I think people are really going to be surprised."

"The Other Side" is due on November 18 through Republic/Universal Records.
