Sully Erna (Godsmack) To Serve As Cornerman At Professional Boxing Event

Godsmack’s Sully Erna will be serving as a professionally licensed cornerman during the upcoming “Scars For Scars” professional boxing event. The event will take place on August 16 at Nashua Community College and Erna will be working with two-time national PAL amateur champion David Tubbs as he makes his professional debut against Ranieri Souza.

Trainer Joseph “Hoss” Janik (KnuckleHeadz Boxing) will be joining Erna in Tubbs’ corner and he had the following to say about working with the musician:

“I recently met Sully through a mutual friend. We hit it off immediately. I was impressed with Sully’s knowledge and passion for boxing. I spoke with David and we agreed that with Sully’s charity involved in the event, it would be great for him to join us to share some knowledge in the locker room and in the corner.”

Erna added:

“Anyone who knows me, knows what a passion I have for boxing. I’ve spent the last 19 years training and learning from so many great coaches from Freddie Roach’s camp, to one of New England’s best boxing coaches, Julio Peña, right here in Londonderry, New Hampshire. So I’m extremely honored to have been asked to work this corner with Hoss. He’s the real deal, and so is David Tubbs. Wait ’til you see him fight. It is going to be a phenomenal night of pro boxing.”

The event will include eight boxing matches and proceeds will benefit Erna’s Scars Foundation. Various items will also be raffled off to raise money for the organization.

Godsmack Premiere “Under Your Scars” Music Video

Godsmack have premiered a new video for their song “Under Your Scars.” This track is from the band’s latest album “When Legends Rise.”

Sully Erna commented:

“‘Under Your Scars’ has become such an important song to me for so many reasons. It’s the first time Godsmack has decided to put this kind of a ballad on an album, which was pretty ballsy for us. I’m so happy that the fans have embraced it in the way they have, because the meaning behind it is so much bigger than any of us. It reminds me that taking all the credit without acknowledging the people or events that have touched our lives deeply enough to inspire songs like these, and so many others would just be wrong.”

“So humbly I will say, this song came to me shortly after I had spent some quality time with someone who I consider a dear friend, and have grown to admire and respect as one of the smartest and most talented artists today, Stephanie Germanotta, who most of you may know as Lady Gaga. In the short amount of time we hung out, she made me realize that we all have these imperfections, these wounds that we carry (whether they’re physical or emotional) that cut so deep they can cripple us. These feelings leave us vulnerable, or embarrassed, or even unworthy at times. And our human nature — when they’re exposed — is to shut down, rather than embrace them and realize that not only can we overcome them, but we can also become an inspiration to inspire others to have a voice and find their inner strength to show their scars off loudly and proudly to the world. Our ‘Scars’ are nothing more than our battle wounds from life and they helped mold you into who you are today.”

“All of this is what drove us to create The Scars Foundation, our new non-profit organization battling everything from severe depression to addiction, bullying, suicide prevention and so on. Finding acceptance, that’s what ‘Under Your Scars’ and what The Scars Foundation are about. We’re all imperfect — that’s what makes us perfect!”

Godsmack’s Sully Erna Says Documentary On His Life Is In Post-Production

During a recent interview on the “TODDCast Podcast”, Godsmack’s Sully Erna confirmed that the upcoming documentary on his life is currently in post-production. He said the following:

“We’re not doing a proper GODSMACK documentary right now — we think it’s just a little bit early for that — but I am releasing a documentary on my life story, from zero until we get a record deal, to show people the path that I took and the struggles I faced and things like that. So we’re working on that now. It’s actually in post-production. I’m hoping to get that out next year.”

Godsmack’s Sully Erna Says He Is “Working On A Feature Documentary About [His] Life Story”

During a recent interview with Tampa, Florida’s 98 Rock, Godsmack’s Sully Erna revealed that he is “working on a feature documentary about [his] life story.” He said the following when asked about a possible Godsmack film:

“A lot of people are asking us about the GODSMACK doc — if it’s gonna come out, when it will come out — and my answer is it can’t come out yet, because we don’t know how it ends. We’re still kind of living through it. Although I have been working on a feature documentary about my life story that’s kind of based on my book that has a lot of GODMACK elements in it as it gets toward the tail end of it, because it goes from the time I was born and it’s all the struggles I went through up until I got a record deal and it kind of ends there. So there’s gonna be somewhat of a tease of that story coming in, or at least the birth of it, but as far as the GODSMACK story, it’s still a little bit premature, I think.”
