Sully Erna has been busy lately! With The Oracle debuting at #1 on the Billboard chart (the 3rd straight time for Godsmack) and a tour that is sure to follow... What is going on with the rumored solo album that he recorded?
You may have noticed that Â if you buy the deluxe edition of The Oracle on iTunes... You get a bonus track! It's a song called The Departed featuring Sully and Lisa Guyer.
Check it out below!
This quote was posted on the official Sully Erna facebook page on January 27, 2010. "Â SOLO RECORD is also coming this year. Looking like an August release for the entire CD.
This record is by far the best music i've ever written, and i really look forward to all of you hearing it. And i really look forward to introducing Lisa Guyer (my singer on this record) to all of you. Girls, you are gonna love her voice. AMAZING!!!
I put everything i know into this record and it is truly a timeless, beautiful piece of art. Completely opposite of what Godsmack does, but nevertheless, very beautiful record. So when you're not in the mood to crank up and drive 100 mph, this is the record you're going to want to put on when you need to just zone out and enjoy some wine and candles. Have fun with it!!
I will keep you all posted as we get closer to releasing it. But what i know for now is, the first single titled:
"THE DEPARTED" will be coming out in March attached to a movie called "SOLOMON KANE".
And then the follow up single titled "SINNER'S PRAYER" will be attached to the new Sylvester Stallone movie called, "THE EXPENDIBLES". I believe that single should hit radio by July with the release of the movie and the entire solo record in August."
With July almost over, August is shaping up to be a BIG month in music.
Linkin Park released the news about their new song and upcoming studio album... The new song is called The Catalyst from the album A Thousand Suns which will be released in many forms, including a HUGE boxed set! Listen for The Catalyst on Tuesday on WAAF!
Lead singer Brandon Boyd is releasing a solo album.
Here's the press release!
INCUBUSâ BRANDON BOYD RELEASES SOLO ALBUM,Â THE WILD TRAPEZEÂ INCUBUSÂ HEADS BACK INTO THE STUDIOÂ Â Â Â Â New York, NYÂ âÂ With a career thatâs spanned almost two decades, six albums, a handful of EPâs and DVDâs and a Greatest Hits album which has chronicled it all under his belt as lead singer of the multi-platinum selling bandÂ Incubus,Â Brandon Boyd and Epic Records are pleased to announce the July 6thÂ release of Brandonâs first solo album entitled,Â The Wild Trapeze.Â Fans can purchaseÂ a limited edition CD that ships with a personal letter and T-shirt featuring hand drawn artwork byÂ BrandonÂ atÂ www.thewildtrapeze.com. The album is also exclusively available digitally on the iTunes Store.Â Â Â Â âThis group of songs was born of a very different process than the many my band and I have been employing for our almost two decades at work now.Â The Wild TrapezeÂ began as pot induced meanderings on my dusty acoustic guitar while Incubus was off of the road, and has slowly been morphing into things that I originally could never have imaginedÂ ,Â "Â says Brandon Boyd. âSo much of my identity, both personally and creatively has been attached to and related to Incubus. For better or worse! And I do believe that every person in every corner of the world asks themselves at some point on their ride, âWho am Iâ¦today?âThe Wild TrapezeÂ is an exercise in self reliance."Â In keeping withÂ Brandonâs vision to make this album his very own and whatÂ BrandonÂ calls âMusic for Musicâs Sakeâ, he controlled the making ofÂ The Wild Trapeze.Â BrandonÂ penned every track off the album and performed practically every instrument heard. He designed the albumâs artwork and co-directed the video for track, âRunaway Trainâ (available atÂ music.AOL.comÂ today) with esteemed photographer Brantley Gutierrez. When it came to producing the album,Â BrandonÂ could think of no one better suited for the task than renowned producer, Dave Fridmann (MGMT, The Flaming Lips) and set forth to record the album in Upstate NY over the past few months.
Up next for Brandon Boyd, another Incubus studio album. The quintet that is Incubus (vocalist Brandon Boyd, guitarist Mike Einziger, bassist Ben Kenney, DJ Chris Kilmore and drummer Jose Pasillas) will head back into the studio later this summer to begin writing and recording a new studio album, tentatively scheduled for a 2011 release.Â
And Buckcherry made a video for their song 'Our World' and debuted it on Larry King. Here is the official statement from Lead singer Josh Todd.
"As musicians who have the benefit of the spotlight from time to time, weÂ feel it is our duty to aid in raising awareness and financial support toÂ help remedy the awful situation in the Gulf Of Mexico.
I see what's happening on the news everyday and how it only gets worse. Â IÂ think of my future and my children's future and we need to do something. Â My band, Buckcherry, wrote a song called "Our World" for our upcoming album. Â The song touches upon the environmental crisis that plagues the world every day.
A few weeks after writing and recording the song, the oil spillÂ occurred. Â We recently went back into the studio to re-write the lyricsÂ based on what was happening in the Gulf. Â We released this versionÂ exclusively on iTunes and are donating the proceeds to those affected byÂ this disaster. Â People can also visit www.buckcherry.com to donate to theÂ cause.
It is so important that each and every one of us do what we can to helpÂ those out whose lives have been harshly impacted by the oil spill."
