A web site has been launched for GODSMACK frontman Sully Erna's upcoming memoir, "The Paths We Choose", which details the first 30 years of his life up until GODSMACK got signed. Due on February 7 via Bartleby Press, the book "is about what it took to get from Point A to Point B," Sully previously told Launch. "It's not the autobiography that's so cliché that talks about all the girls we (slept with) and how many drugs we've done and... who cares. This is a cooler story for me." Erna also said that the book will have "a lot of morals and lessons to be learned in it."
GODSMACK plans to take some time off at the beginning of 2007 so that bassist Robbie Merrill and his wife can welcome their first child, a girl. Erna told Launch what else is in the works for the beginning of the year. "January through March is gonna be dead time for us," he said. "We're just gonna take some time to relax with our families, maybe have a little vacation. I'm probably gonna go out to California and work, and I might try to tap into the acting thing a little bit more and maybe take some courses and that's kind of really where I'd like to go, is into the movie world a little bit. So I might go pursue that a little bit, and probably fire it back up around March or April."
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.
GODSMACK plans to shoot a video for its new single, "The Enemy", and might enlist veteran actor Chazz Palminteri to direct it. Palminteri's acting credits include "The Usual Suspects", "A Bronx Tale" and "Analyze This".
