Godsmack frontman Sully Erna was interviewed by Roxy Myzal of HardDrive Radio. He explains, why Godsmack decided to wait until 2018 for next album. 

He says:

“I don’t know yet. We’re talking now about getting together maybe fall of next year to write and record and dropping something top fo 2018, which is gonna be the 20th-year anniversary of our first album. So we thought, you know what? We could have pushed it and did something to drop in 2017, but we were, like… You know what? They’re [Godsmack guys] working on their side project [The Apocalypse Blues Revue], and I’m working on the solo stuff. So let’s just finish this and do it right and just wait a pinch longer, because if we do that and we drop in 2018, we can make a really big, great world tour with the whole theme of the first album concepts involved in it and all that. So I think that may be the plan.”

Godsmack was dropped their latest album called “1000hp” in 2014.
