Godsmack Sign With BMG

Sully Erna’s new solo album, “Hometown Life,” is set to be released on September 30 through BMG, and in a new studio video for the effort, Erna revealed that Godsmack have signed with the label as well. You can hear him talk about that in the below video:

Erna said the following:

“It’s been a really interesting year so far, too, for me this year. Besides coming out with this new album, there’s been a lot of changes I’ve been making in my life in general, and one of them was departing… After a sixteen-, seventeen-year relationship with Republic/Universal, our contractual obligations were up and we decided to move on and sign with BMG, which has been a real pleasure so far. Because you know it’s coming back to having control as the artist and not being controlled by the record label.

Not that we had a bad experience with Republic or Universal—they were great to us; we’re still like family, and we really admire and respect those guys for everything they did for us—but, you know, years move on and things change, and so the industry changes, and so our relationship, as artists, to the industry has to change as well.

And so it was just time. It was a good opportunity to try something new, and also be in a position of control again of our own music and of our own career.”

Sully Erna issued the following statement:

“To all radio stations, programming directors and most importantly, our fans! Here’s something fun we recently recorded just for you! Year after year you have shown us nothing but love and loyalty by purchasing our music, playing our songs, and attending our live shows. You have all been a critical part of this band’s success for the last 18 years, and it doesn’t go unnoticed. So to show our appreciation, we would like to gift you our new song “Inside Yourself” and say thank you for always having our back!

This is a song about equality for all! Understanding that no one is worthless or any lesser than the next person. We are all equally important as human beings and should be treated that way. And for those of you who feel the need to cut others down to make yourself look superior, you seriously need to take a good look ‘inside yourself.’ This one is on us! Enjoy!”
