Godsmack May Take ‘Drastic Turn’ Musically On Next Album

October 12, 2015

Gibson.com recently interviewed Godsmack frontman Sully Erna and talked about the band’s plan for their next album. Sully said they’re taking the music away from their signature sound, “We feel that on this new record we’re going to write next year, we may just completely take a drastic turn in what kind of style we want to pull out.”

He continued: “I think we want to get away from being lumped into the metal crowd. I think we’re coming a lot more back to our roots now, so on the new record, I think we’re going to try to mix things up and get to a place where we’re not going to hurt the integrity of the band but maybe go in a more rock ‘n’ roll direction.”

On a timetable for its seventh studio album, Erna told Gibson.com: “The band is writing, and I think we’ll probably start really getting together to arrange everything and start recording by early next year — maybe spring.”

Godsmack’s last album, “1000hp”, was released in 2014, was their first new album in four years and debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard album chart.

The band is currently on a North American tour, rolling thru Wallingford, Connecticut on Tuesday (October 13), with the trek wrapping up on November 14 in Las Vegas.
