Sully Erna talks about his solo album

Sully Erna, lead vocalist of Godsmack, has posted an update on the bands MySpace page in which he uses it to talk about his upcoming solo album, ‘Avalon’, which will not be a rock album. The lead single from his album, ‘Sinner’s Prayer’, went live on radio throughout the US today and you can hear a sample of it below with Sully’s update.

Hey all!

Thanks for your patience on awaiting my new record AVALON, I know it has been a long time coming for all of you. I’m very happy to say that as of Sept. 14, 2010, you will be able to finally get your hands on this amazing record!

I truly believe that this is my best work to date. I’m more proud of this record than any other music I have ever recorded. It is so pure and organic, every ounce of my blood, sweat and tears has been poured into this body of work. Without a doubt, I have completely exposed myself in this album. More importantly, it’s just a very cool musical journey you go on when you listen through.

Although, as I’ve said before, I must emphasize that THIS IS NOT A ROCK RECORD!!! This is a series of beautifully arranged compositions that I have created over many years. Some compositions are newer, written with the help of my solo band mates. Others have been shelved over time waiting for the right moment to be released. That moment is finally here, and I couldn’t be more proud to share it with all of you!

This record was recorded with all hand drums, cellos, flutes, piano, etc… It is very eclectic and intellectual. It is something that you will want to put on when you’re in the mood to lie on your couch, dim the lights, and light all your candles and incense. Just vibe out to this hypnotic variety of music, and enjoy the pictures that will be painted in your mind. This is a very visual record, so for sure the visuals will come. Don’t be surprised if it triggers some deep emotions within you based on your own life situations. Either way, enjoy the ride, it’s a beautiful one!!

If I could ask one simple favor of all of you, I would ask for you to please pass this music on to as many people as you can. Spread the word that there is a great new record out, and if they don’t have it yet, they are missing out on a real musical experience.

This album was a combination of work that took me almost 7 years to complete, and it deserves to be heard all over the world, help me make that dream come true.

All my love and respect,

Sully Erna
