Godsmack just dropped the first new track from what may be their final album.
Here’s what frontman Sully Erna said back in April of the band’s next record:
“We’ll be back first quarter of ’23 with a new record. The record’s finished; we’re done recording it. You should probably be hearing new music by summertime — mid-to-late summer — and then following it up with a second single and the full record by the top of ’23. That’s the plan. And then we’re just gonna hit it one more time hard and heavy. And I’ve gotta tell you, this might be the last one for us — it might be the last record for us.”From Loudwire.
So while we ponder a world without Godsmack, listen to “Surrender” below while Sully explains its meaning.
“Surrender is a very cut and dry song. It’s simply about the exhaustion we can all feel in relationships at times from the redundancy of fighting with each other… At a certain point in our lives, we submit to putting aside who’s right or wrong, we just want it to STOP! So we wave the white flag.”
