GODSMACK Is Preparing To Begin Songwriting Process For Next Studio Album
September 13, 2019
GODSMACK's Sully Erna has told Canada's iHeartRadio that the band is preparing to begin the songwriting process for the follow-up to last year's "When Legends Rise" album. "We're starting to leak into the thought process of starting to write," he said (see video below). "That's as far as we've gotten. We're, like, 'We should start thinking about writing a record,' 'cause we do wanna stay out and do two records back to back. So I think we're gonna spend the next year starting to drizzle in ideas and start to sculpt out and find out what maybe the next record's gonna sound like. But for sure, right now we still have a good year of touring left."
GODSMACK recently landed three No. 1 singles from the same album, "When Legends Rise". The group's latest track, "Under Your Scars", topped the rock radio chart in July, joining previous chart-toppers "Bulletproof" and the title cut. "Bulletproof" was also the most-played song at rock radio in 2018.
"When Legends Rise" was released in April 2018. The disc follows up 2014's "1000hp" and is GODSMACK's first release through BMG after splitting with its longtime home, Republic/Universal.
GODSMACK has spent more than a year on the road, both in North America and throughout Europe, in support of "When Legends Rise". They recently wrapped the European dates on their in-progress world tour and made a number of festival appearances leading straight into the recently added fall shows, with HALESTORM supporting. The new dates kick off September 20 in Green Bay, Wisconsin and wrap October 20 in Saint Charles, Missouri.
