how he was able to balance his solo work with the demands of being in a band as big as GODSMACK
. "The way I balance GODSMACK
and anything I do on the side is just waiting for GODSMACK
to have downtime," he said. "You know, I mean, I think as artists are, we constantly write music and just sometimes you recognize that some stuff works for your main band and then other things feel like something that's not gonna quite work for that band, but it's a great song and you may not want to throw it away, so you figure out where its home is.""Avalon"
was released in October 2010 and Erna
supported it with a tour featuring an eight-piece musical backing group. The ambient, world music vibe of the record was a far cry from his usual hard-hitting material with GODSMACK
kicked off the Rockstar Energy Uproar Festival
tour with SHINEDOWN
and others on August 17 in Bonner Springs, Kansas, with Erna
starting his first major tour since canceling a European run several weeks ago over throat issues. GODSMACK
will also be one of the headliners on the ShipRocked
2012 cruise this year, taking off from Fort Lauderdale, Florida in late November for five days.GODSMACK
