Godsmack Plan “Tribal” Fall Release
A press release from the band states that the group is recording “acoustic down-tempo” versions of some of their hits like “Voodoo” and “Serenity”. The album will feature “stripped-down versions of some of the band’s big hits, along with several newly recorded acoustic tracks.
The band has not nailed down a final track listing. They are still “mulling over” which of their previous songs to refashion for the disk and how different they want those tracks to end up. #1 singles they will include on the record and how they will differ from the original versions.
“We decided to do an acoustic record because we have always messed around with acoustic versions of our music and gotten great reactions to it. Re-working the songs this way shows a different side of the band,” says frontman Sully Erna.
Erna is producing the album and they are calling in Producer David Bottrill to mix the effort. Bottrill produced the band’s current hit album, “Faceless”.
The group will follow up the recording sessions with a new North American tour, which they say will kick off in Canada this time before they venture back to the States for more dates. The tour will also include markets that were missed during the group’s last tour this past spring.
