GODSMACK, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, SEVENDUST and SHADOWS FALL are among the bands that performed at this past weekend's (October 24-26) Rock The Ink festival at the Dunkin' Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island.

GODSMACK has been on a break since late last year, with the other members releasing an album under the name ANOTHER ANIMAL.

GODSMACK frontman Sully Erna stated at the time that he planned to work on his first solo album, but little has been heard about it since.

KILLSWITCH ENGAGE bassist Mike D'Antonio told MTV's Metal File in August that the New England-based band would enter the studio this month to begin work on its next album, with plans to release the disc in early 2009. D'Antonio remarked, "When we start on this next one, we'll just bring our demos to practice, and we'll listen to them, judge them and start rearranging the parts that need to be rearranged — or we just start jamming on what sounds cool." The bassist added that most of the material he's written so far for the project sounds "fast."

The group expects to hit the road next March in support of the CD.
