We've had the audio for "Surrender" since late September, now let's get the visual with this new, fist in the air live concert and backstage touring footage video!

"'Surrender' is a very cut and dry song. It's simply about the exhaustion we can all feel in relationships at times from the redundancy of fighting with each other. At a certain point in our lives, we submit to putting aside who's right or wrong, we just want it to STOP! So we wave the white flag." - vocalist/guitarist Sully Erna

GODSMACK gears up to release new album "Lighting Up the Sky" and Debuts new song “You And I”

ooljhkjhjkk
GODSMACK have revealed the details on their new album "Lighting Up the Sky". It's their eighth and reportedly final studio album from GODSMACK. It's scheduled to be released February 24, 2023. I traveled to Las Vegas at the end of September for a GODSMACK listening party with the band. I'm here to tell you...This Album MOVED ME!

Sully Erna says of this album - "'Lighting Up The Sky' Is the most important record, I think, we've ever written and recorded. I've never been that artist who says, 'Oh, this record is our newest record. It's our best work ever.' And I'm telling you right now this is our best fucking work ever. And it's because it's emotional, man. This is the last record we're ever gonna do. This is the last run around the mill for us. We put every single ounce of energy and emotion into this album. Especially for me, when I wrote a lot of these songs, it was about my life journey. That's really what the sequence of this album becomes about. Not that it was planned that way, but this really kind of mystical thing happened where I felt like the universe wrote this record."

Sully wants to clarify that GODSMACK does not intend to stop playing live shows anytime soon. "I wanna make sure people are clear about what we're saying here. I'm not saying that the band may be breaking up. What I'm saying is I think this may be the last body of work you get musically from the band. We'd like to be able to enjoy our lives, our family, our houses, the things that we've earned over the years that we've sacrificed. So I think the balance for that, the happy medium, is to be able to just go out there now and continue to do live shows and put the greatest-hits show together. I don't know what we're gonna do after this record. And it doesn't make sense to continue to do music. It really feels complete in a good way, in a positive way. We feel like we've honored our career, our relationships with our fans, and we're always gonna be there for them; we're gonna do shows. But as far as to continue this, after this [album], unless we just decide one day, 'Yeah, one more for the road,' I think this could be it for us with new music."

"Lighting Up the Sky" is GODSMACK's first studio album in nearly five years, since the release of "When Legends Rise" in 2018 making this the longest gap between two studio albums by GODSMACK. The opening track, "You And I" (watch the official visualizer video below), is available to stream now and is the second single from it. Sully Erna co-produced their new album Andrew "Mudrock" Murdock (Avenged Sevenfold, Alice Cooper). "Lighting Up the Sky" tells a story through each song....

"I like when a record takes you on a journey from front to back. I realized there's a whole story here about one man's journey, the ups, and downs. I believe it's a story everyone will connect to, on a human level, because we've all gone through things in life." - frontman/guitarist Sully Erna

"I had always looked for ways to give back and help others in some way after reaching certain levels of success in my life. But I could never really figure out where to dedicate my time and attention and what was important to me, or where I even had experience to offer. I want to share that with people and lend my stories, my experiences, and my theories on how you can overcome challenging times rather than letting them ruin your life. That's why The Scars Foundation is so important to me. It's personal. It's my life. And it's important that people who struggle with these mental health issues and 'imperfections,' or 'scars,' as we call them, learn how to embrace them, and show them to the world loudly and proudly!"

New Godsmack Album Possible By The End Of The Year

Capture

 In a recent episode of Offstage With DWP, the video series, Sully Erna said that he's hoping to complete a new Godsmack album AND a solo album by the end of THIS year. 

He said his main priority is to spend the rest of the year working with Godsmack so a new album can be ready by the beginning of 2021...and he wants to get a solo record done by the holidays.
That's a lot of work but Sully said that he's going to get very aggressive with his creativity and once he's in that "space" it starts going quick.
