Godsmack’s Sully Erna Recruits Shinedown, Papa Roach, Staind, Etc. Members For “Live From The Living Room” Charity Fundraiser

Sully Erna (Godsmack) has announced a “Live From The Living Room” fundraiser for The Scars Foundation. The event will stream on the frontman’s YouTube channel and the Foundation’s Facebook page on August 6 at 5:00 p.m PT / 8:00 p.m. ET and it will feature Godsmack, Erna solo (feat. Chris Lester and Máiréad Nesbitt), Staind’s Aaron Lewis, Shinedown’s Brent Smith and Zach Myers, Papa Roach, Saint Asonia’s Mike Mushok and Adam Gontier, Extreme’s Nuno Bettencourt, and Sevendust’s Clint Lowery.

Erna commented:

“I had always looked for ways to give back and help others in some way after reaching certain levels of success in my life. But I could never really figure out where to dedicate my time and attention and what was important to me, or where I even had experience to offer. One day, I started thinking about my own life and being a survivor of such an extremely rough inner city and that’s where all my experience was. It was all the battle wounds and scars I’ve carried that made me stronger and made me the man I am today. Instead of being ashamed of my imperfections, or hiding from them, I learned how to embrace them and grow from those experiences. I want to share that with people and lend my stories, my experiences, and my theories on how you can overcome challenging times rather than letting them ruin your life.

And that’s why The Scars Foundation is so important to me. It’s personal. It’s my life. And it’s important that people who struggle with these mental health issues and ‘imperfections,’ or ‘scars,’ as we call them, learn how to embrace them, and show them to the world loudly and proudly!

I hope the work we do with The Scars Foundation inspires people to come forward and share their stories so that those stories inspire more people to come forward and break the silence and internal struggles.

Just remember: you’re not alone. And we’re all imperfectly perfect. Just the way we’re supposed to be!”

In addition to the livestream, fans can also participate in a charity auction HERE.

Aaron Lewis Working On New Staind Music And New Solo Acoustic Album

It looks like Staind have been working on new material as of late. Frontman Aaron Lewis confirmed the news during an appearance on Godsmack frontman Sully Erna‘s “Hometown Sessions.” On top of that, Lewis also revealed that he is working on a solo acoustic album.

Lewis said the following about Staind:

“I’m working on new Staind shit… We’re toying around with some creativity.”

He also added the following about the acoustic album:

“I’ve got a completely acoustic [album] — no coloration to it. It’s not gonna be country, it’s not gonna be anything except an acoustic guitar and vocals. That’s what’s next.”

“The last show that I played here in Nashville, just me acoustically, with no back-up band or anything. I was playing some of the songs off the country records, and I was playing some of the songs from Staind, but all just me and the acoustic guitar.

That simplifies everything — that takes away the country flavor, that takes away the rock flavor, that takes away everything and just leaves the skeletal structure.

And Scott Borchetta, the president of my record label, was so moved by that show, this next record he wants from me, which would have been a country record, he wants a totally acoustic record.”

Disturbed commented:

“Hello Disturbed Ones! We hope you and your families are all doing well during this crazy time.

We have waited as long as we possibly could to finalize the plans for our 20th Anniversary of The Sickness summer tour. We had hoped that there would be some clear direction and guidelines on how mass gatherings would be conducted this summer. Unfortunately, that clarity has not come and out of an abundance of caution we have made the decision to RESCHEDULE for Next Summer. We are working to get these dates rescheduled and look forward to sharing an update soon.

At the time the dates are rescheduled, refund options will become available, for further details visit LiveNation.com/refund. Thank you for understanding. Please stay safe and we can’t wait to rock.

David, Dan, Mike and John“
