Godsmack is currently in Hawaii working on an acoustic EP, which is slated to be released on November 18. The band is recording some brand new tunes for the still-untitled album, and the collection will also feature re-workings of several of Godsmack’s biggest hits.
Vocalist/songwriter Sully Erna and crew are currently mulling over which of their songs they will include and what treatment to give them so they sound different from the original recordings. Erna said in a statement, “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 songs this way shows a different side of the band.”
Following the recording in Hawaii, the band will embark on a North American tour in support of its latest album, Faceless. Although dates and routing haven’t been announced, they’ll hit Canada first and then head to the U.S.
Godsmack’s latest single, “Serenity,” is currently at Number 25 on the Billboard Modern Rock chart.
