Godsmack has made it well-known that their latest record Lighting Up The Sky would be their final studio album. Now in a brand new interview with Energy Hour, Godsmack frontman Sully Erna notes that not having to put in writing music means extra time on the street.
Which I assume is not a foul factor, however oversaturation can be an actual concern amongst touring bands. Doubly so for Godsmack, who do not seem to be they’ve the choice of touring Europe without losing money, or making it right down to South America without having to cancel due to low ticket sales.
“I would like folks to grasp and be clear that we’re not saying that is the top of the band,” mentioned Erna. “We simply really feel that we have arrived at a sure place in our life… I keep in mind studying this quote a very long time in the past from Tom Hamilton when he mentioned, ‘Music is one thing I’ve all the time wished to do with my life, however it’s not every thing I wanna do with my life.’ And so I begin pondering, we’re simply form of closing one chapter proper now and we’re opening a brand new chapter, and that chapter is gonna be weightless for us. As a result of to not have that accountability of all the time having to return in and grind years of your life in studios making music… We wanna simply be capable of honor this greatest-hits present and create that.
“So I believe these — we name ’em the ‘sundown years’ now — we wanna simply go and luxuriate in all this stuff that we have earned for the final three a long time and be capable of have enjoyable with it and never have that stress of all the time having to ship for the label and blah blah blah. So I believe it is an thrilling time, and folks ought to be excited for us as a result of they’re gonna get extra of us as a result of the reward is admittedly the dwell present.
“After all of the tedious stuff you do within the studio — you guys do not care about that. I imply, it is cool — you get to see the behind-the-scenes from time to time for second, however, actually, you are coming to the present to have a superb time and have some drinks and hearken to music and let free. And now that is what we get to do for the remainder of our lives, for so long as we wanna do it.”
