GODSMACK frontman Sully Erna debuted a brand new song called “Falling Through Glass” during his April 6 concert at Riviera Theatre in North Tonawanda, New York. Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be seen below.
Erna just finished a short tour to promote the release of “Avalon Live”, his upcoming live DVD/Blu-ray that features the singer and an eight-piece band performing songs from his 2010 solo debut, “Avalon”. A late spring release for the disc is planned, although an exact arrival date has yet to be confirmed.
Many fans feared when Erna announced his solo project a couple of years ago that it would mean the end of GODSMACK. But Erna told The Pulse Of Radio that nothing could be further from the truth. “For me, I didn’t go off and do a solo thing because I was angry at my band,” he said. “As an artist, I need both for balance. It’s just creative, you know, juices that need to come out and I can’t write some of the stuff I wrote for the solo record and fit it into GODSMACK‘s world. It doesn’t work, it’s not the same texture.”
The limited edition of “Avalon Live” will include the show, a documentary and behind-the-scenes footage on three DVDs, two CDs, a book, T-shirt, guitar pick, poster, incense, and a custom Sully Erna engraved metal box with a suede lining. There will only be 5,000 of the box sets produced.
GODSMACK will release a live album called “Live And Inspired” this spring. The effort will include 13 songs recorded at a show in Detroit, Michigan on the band’s last tour and will be packaged with a bonus disc containing four cover songs.
