After a lengthy hiatus, Godsmack‘s new single “1000 HP,” has been the number one most added song to the Rock Radio singles’ chart this week. Godsmack threw a listening party last night (June 10th) in NYC for the record. The song comes from the band’s forthcoming album, which is set to hit stores in April.
Frontman Sully Erna told us where the band recorded the album, saying,
“We actually built a new Godsmack headquarters up in the Boston area, so we decided to lease this 4,000 square foot warehouse and we built one side with the loading dock, so it’s just all of our staging, road cases [and] touring equipment. And then on the other side we did this really cool living room, kitchenette, bathroom, control room, live stage room and we went and tracked the whole record up in the Boston area and obviously came out here to California to mix it. So, it’s nice now because we’re all under one roof. We have everything there and we don’t really need to go anywhere else now to either rehearse for tours or to record new music.”
- The band’s sixth studio effort will follow up 2010’s The Oracle and follows a two-year hiatus.
- Godsmack is expected to reveal plans for touring later this week.
