Godsmack kündigen neues Album an

Godsmack haben für den 27. April ihr neues Album „When Legends Rise“ angekündigt. Die erste Single daraus mit dem Titel „Bulletproof“ ist ab sofort erhältlich.

„When Legends Rise“ ist das siebte Studioalbum der Hard Rocker, die sich seinerzeit in Boston, Massachusetts, gründeten und in ihrer rund 20 Jahre andauernden Karriere knapp 20 Millionen Tonträger verkauften. Aufgenommen wurde das Werk im Godsmack Headquarter in Derry, New Hampshire. Für die Produktion der elf neuen Songs zeichneten sich Erik Ron und Sänger Sully Erna verantwortlich. „It was just about evolving as a songwriter,“ so Erna. „I wanted to stretch my wings even further, to use all of the experiences I’ve had writing different types of music over the years and apply that to finding a way to introduce a newer, fresher, more mature sound, whilst still maintaining the power of Godsmack.“


Als erste Single schicken Godsmack den Song „Bulletproof“ voraus, der ab sofort digital erhältlich ist. „I always write about things that have affected me on an emotional level“, führt Sully Erna aus. „I think everyone knows that about me by now. But if I choose to do that, I have to be prepared to be honest and vulnerable. And so the challenge is figuring out how ‘exposed’ you want to be with personal information. But I’ve also learnt over the years that, for me, being transparent, even to the point of embarrassment sometimes, is so much better than holding it inside and extending that pain longer than you need to. ‘Bulletproof’ is just another moment in my life when I allowed myself to be vulnerable and got hurt. It’s this kind of carelessness from other people that eventually hardens you and forces you to put up that wall to protect yourself. So when and if they circle back around and try to get back in, you make yourself bulletproof.“

„When Legends Rise“ von Godsmack erscheint am 27. April via Spinefarm Records. Die Band wird im Sommer einige Festivals in den USA spielen. Eine Tournee durch Europa ist in Planung.
