Godsmack To Enter A Recording Studio In January!
Godsmack singer Sully Erna was recently a guest of Minnesota’s 93X radio station talked about the progress of their new album and when you’ll be able to hear it, “People always ask us about this gap of how come it takes Godsmack four years to put out new music. Well, for us, it’s a blink of an eye. And the reason is because we take about six months to a year to write and record a record, ’cause we go for quality most of the time, not quantity. And then it’s touring on it, which lasts another 18 months to two years. And then, obviously, when coming off a big world tour like that, before we do another record, we’re taking six months off or something like that, and then it’s another six months to a year to write [a new album]. So four years goes by very quickly is my point.”
Erna added, “Obviously, with COVID, it even bumped it up a little bit more. So, in a nutshell, the plan is gonna be we have some shows we’re gonna honor this April and May coming up from back when COVID hit and we had to cancel some — just a handful. And then we are planning to hopefully release something late ’22, with the intentions of getting out there by early ’23 — in the States. We may start a little sooner in Europe first, but the States, I think, ’23 for a big new-look world tour kind of thing [in support of a] new album.”
Erna did say the band had planned to put out new music this year but the pandemic changed things, “When this [pandemic] thing happened, then we were, like, ‘Okay, well, this gives us some time, ’cause I wanna set up this place and get the band ready in a new studio’ and whatever. Then we finished the studio and we went right to work. We were in there for two, three months or whatever, and we started grinding and pumping out music, and then we were going, like, ‘Wait a minute here. Why are we in such a hurry? We’re not gonna tour yet for a while.’
We had Sully Erna as a guest of the Toddcast Podcast a couple years back, check it out!
Godsmack’s latest album “When Legends Rise” is their 7th and was their first release in four years (and recorded at their now-former headquarters (GSHQ) in Derry, New Hampshire). “When Legends Rise” entered the Billboard Top 200 album chart in the top ten (#8), with four #1 placements on other charts: Top Rock Albums, Top Hard Music Albums, Top Independent Albums and Top Alternative Albums.
Do you think their new album will do as well as their latest?
