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

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

Saint Asonia will release “Extrovert” EP and have debuted their New Single “Wolf”

tsgdyf

Saint Asonia (Staind, Ex-Three Days Grace) will release their new EP "Extrovert" on November 18th. This past summer they released the "Introvert" EP. Both through Spinefarm Records. Give a listen to their new track "Wolf" below.

"This song was inspired by the chaos, the darkness, and the violence that so many people have to live with in this world. So often we have to fight, scratch, and crawl our way out of unbearably difficult times, making our way to the surface for a moment, just to be thrown back in. It kinda feels like we're always under attack. 'Wolf' is about being backed into a corner and fighting just to stay alive." - Adam Gontier (formerly of Three Days Grace)

"Extrovert" track listing:
01 – "Devastate"
02 – "Break The Mold"
03 – "Over It"

'DISTURBED' RETURN WITH NEW ALBUM "DIVISIVE" AND DROP ANOTHER NEW SONG AND VIDEO. CHECK IT OUT HERE!

image00_20220926-224508_1

Gearing up for another era, multi-platinum rock band Disturbed will release their eighth full-length album, Divisive, on November 18, 2022 via Reprise Records. Pre-order/Pre-save Divisive HERE.

Bulldozing the way for the record, the group just unleashed an unpredictable and undeniable new single entitled "Unstoppable" today. Listen to "Unstoppable" HERE and watch the lyric video HERE.

About Divisive, Draiman noted, "Partisan tribal warfare has become a part of our regular existence nowadays. It's one big battle of the cliques. The whole idea of the record is to be a wakeup call for everyone. Our society has become addicted to outrage. Music is the best cure for what ails us though. If only everyone reached out and used it. There's no better environment to forget about all of this shit than live music. We can be together and realize we have more in common than not. Recognize what's happening and let's make a change for the better."

Donegan added, "Whatever it takes, we've got to pull it together. We've always tried to take negative topics and spin them in a positive light. From touring around the world, we've seen the power of music as the universal language to bring everyone together from all walks of life. We can still play songs to unite people, and it's a pretty powerful feeling."

"Unstoppable" storms out of the gate on a jackhammer guitar riff, pummeling drums, and the band's signature staccato vocal phrasing in lockstep with a pulsating rhythm. This barrage crashes into a skyscraping stadium-ready refrain, "There's no escape. I am unstoppable." The accompanying lyric video seamlessly translates this frenetic anthem into fiery on-screen action befitting of the track's uncontainable momentum.

Draiman elaborated, "'Unstoppable' is definitely one of the heavier tracks on the record. The groove builds into a bombastic animal. It's truly the fight song."

"We always have a big rock anthem on every album," Donegan commented. "We love to write empowering songs for motivation. We're avid sports fans, and that's definitely part of it. It's an in-your-face track, for sure."

Divisive pulls no punches as a precise, pummeling, and powerful hard rock opus. Over the last year, the quartet cut these ten tracks with producer Drew Fulk [Motionless In White, Lil Peep, Highly Suspect] in Nashville, TN. After Donegan shared initial ideas with the rest of the group, they locked in like never before with the groove as the backbone. Drummer Mike Wengren bolted down some of the strongest and boldest rhythms of their career punctuated by John Moyer's punchy bass. Together, the musicians collectively conjured the focus and fire of their seminal early output augmented by airtight songcraft and a heightened level of musical chemistry that could only be forged by years of writing and touring together.

As a result, Divisive finds Disturbed at their most dynamic, defiant, and dangerous.

Breaking ground, it also notably marks the first time the band included a guest feature on an album, boasting the epic emotionally charged duet "Don't Tell Me" with Ann Wilson. Meanwhile, the likes of "Bad Man" and "Divisive" rank amongst the band's heaviest material. At the same time, they infuse the likes of "Won't Back Down" with uplifting melodies.

Check out the full tracklisting below.

They initially set the stage for the record with "Hey You." The song spread like wildfire across airwaves, emerging as their 15th #1 single at Rock Radio. At the same time, it has already gathered 10 million-plus streams and counting, only increasing anticipation for Divisive.

Meeting the anticipation head-on with unrestrained heaviness, Disturbed have delivered tenfold on Divisive.

Disturbed are performing at several upcoming festivals throughout this fall (full dates below). Tickets for all dates are available here.

  1. Hey You
  2. Bad Man
