I wish I could remove “Almost” from that headline, but I can’t.
Awesome bands break up all the time, which sucks because bands like Godsmack persevere, despite being so fucking mediocre.
Blabbermouth has a story claiming Godsmack almost threw in the towel in 2010.
Years of working together almost non-stop were taking their toll on the group, the article says.
“You know, it was getting rough,” mini-frontman Sully Erna’s quoted as saying.
“You know, I’m not gonna lie — the band was getting into a funky place and there was talks about breaking up and, you know, not really staying a band anymore. But you know, I think it was just some time we needed, some time to really reassess the thing and really appreciate what we have as a band. We’ve always been kind of level-headed about things and eventually we just needed to let a little time pass and let the dust settle.”
Erna added bad blood over Godsmack offshoot Another Animal, as well as his satisfaction with his own solo album Avalon, led Godsmack to the brink before they reconsidered.
Oh, and here’s a teaser for the first single off the album.
