Godsmack fans rejoice; the new album is in motion.
Frontman Sully Erna and drummer Shannon Larkin have both posted updates about the project, the quartet's first studio set since 2010's "The Oracle."
Erna took to Twitter with a note declaring, "This band is on FIRE lately! Finished 11 songs in two weeks so far. 2014 watch the f%#k out!!!"
Larkin, meanwhile, posted a more detailed note at Godsmack's official web site, telling fans that there's "A lot going on in Smack world. We wrote a bunch of new songs in Florida while our HQ was being built in New England. Now here we are outside of Boston in a kick ass studio surrounded by Godsmack vibes and creating like maniacs! So many cool new tunes that I can tell ya it's gonna be hard to narrow these down to the best ones! I can't give anything away at this point, but wanted to let you real fans know that we are DEEP into this and feeling great about positive attitudes and massive progress!...I know it's been awhile since you've heard from us, but we will make it worth your wait!"
"The Oracle" was Godsmack's third consecutive No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 and launched the hits "Whiskey Hangover," "Cryin` Like a Bitch" and "Love-Hate-Sex-Pain."
