Godsmack Update On New Album And Live DVD

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.
