Former DROPBOX members John Kosco (guitar, vocals) and Joey Wilkinson (guitar) have joined forces with ex-BLOODSIMPLE/DOWNSET drummer Chris Hamilton and bassist John Eville in a new band called SAINT CAINE. The group are currently working on their debut album, to be released in late 2006/early 2007. "It's going to be difficult for us to decide what stays and goes on this record," the band said in a statement
DROPBOX have been dropped by Universal Records. The band released their self-titled debut through the label in partnership with GODSMACK frontman Sully Erna's imprint Realign Records. Despite the recent turn of events, the band are currently in the studio preparing a followup release.
Although Godsmack drummer Shannon Larkin recently told the Syracuse Post-Standard that the next album will be "really heavy," singer Sully Erna said it's too early to predict. "It's way too premature to tell," Erna told Launch Radio Networks. "We don't even have close to enough material to tell what direction it's going in. So it's too premature to say. We're still in baby stages of writing this new record."
Godsmack are currently on a break between stints as Metallica's regular opening act. The band will tentatively release a concert DVD, called "Changes," on September 14. The disc will reportedly focus on a live show filmed in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania earlier this year.
The new single from Godsmack's "The Other Side" EP is "Touche," a collaboration with Dropbox singer John Kosco and guitarist Lee Richards. Dropbox are the first band signed to Erna's own Realign Records.
Locobazooka 2004 is returning to the Fitchburg Municipal Airport this year for 2 full days of music lasting from September 25th through the 26th. Confirmed so far are the following artists:

Taking a break between legs of the Metallica tour, Godsmack kicks off a sold-out headline tour of their own with Ill Nino and Dropbox. Godsmack's recent release of THE OTHER SIDE, their acoustic
record, debuted last week at #5 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart. Dropbox, which is frontman Sully Erna's first signing to his new Universal imprint Realign Records, and opens all dates, is also featured on the new album with performance and co-writing credits for the song "Touche." Godsmack heads back out with Metallica, April 20 in Uniondale, NY.
Godsmack loyalists who download THE OTHER SIDE from iTunes, Napster and BuyMusic will receive Dropbox's 'Wishbone' as a bonus track. This digital value-add is the first such offer - bundling an album with a track that is already available for sale - for Universal Motown Records Group (UMRG).
Dropbox came together after Erna introduced Lee Richards, Godsmack's original guitarist, to frontman John Kosco, and they detonate April 13 with their self-titled debut, an explosive album of sprawling melodic rock delivered by a band with a deep reverence for the classics.
The Godsmack tour dates are as follows: More...
