Godsmack Pay Tribute To Chester Bennington & Chris Cornell, Discuss The Band’s New Direction

Godsmack paid tribute to both Chester Bennington and Chris Cornell during their August 9 show at Musikfest in Bethlehem, PA. You can see footage of them performing Linkin Park’s “Crawling” and Temple Of The Dog’s “Hunger Strike” below:

In other news, Sully Erna and Shannon Larkin were recently interviewed by WFMZ-TV, and talked a bit about their new direction. Erna said the following when asked if their new album has a theme:

“Not so much a theme, but we have made a conscious decision to kind of change the game a bit. This show [Musikfest] we’re kind of marking as the last of the nostalgic Godsmack shows, and from this point forward, we’re gonna kind of open a new chapter in our career and go for a new sound, a new stage and a new look for the band. We’re gonna change things up enough, maintain the integrity of what we are and what we do. But it feels so far that the writing is going a little bit more down into a commercial, mainstream kind of feel. But, again, without losing the power and the stuff that we built our heritage on.”
