Godsmack "Bombs" Selling 3MIL of Sophomore Record

Godsmack's Robbie Merrill explained to ElectricBasement.com what it is like to be criticized for "only" selling 3 million CDs of their last album, "Yeah, this is the only business in the world where you can sell three million records and people will say it bombed because the first one sold ten million. It's fucked but that is how they think. Like they say, you have your whole life to write your first record whereas on the second one we wrote that completely on the road while we were touring and it was done in six weeks so it was a different kind of thing there. On this one we had some time off after finishing the last tour and we were a lot more rested. Then we have the new drummer, Chris Larkin now so that changed things a little." Read the whole interview here, inlcuding info on the new album Faceless, due in April.
