It may be Godsmack frontman Sully Erna’s birthday today, but he just provided some news that should serve as a great gift for Godsmack fans worldwide. Godsmack hasn’t released any new music since their 2010 album ‘The Oracle’ and although the band has confirmed that they’ve been working on a new offering, very few details have been shared yet.
Filming is about to get underway on the upcoming movie 'Army of the Damned' with Godsmack's Sully Erna playing one of the lead roles. In the film, he's a police sheriff named Bridge who uncovers more than he bargained for when answering a domestic disturbance call. Erna, making his feature film debut, has been taking part in rehearsals and some of the first photos from the film with the singer in his role have surfaced online. They can be seen below.
Godsmack's time off is giving the band members to spread their wings a little and explore some of their passions. For frontman Sully Erna, that means he's getting the opportunity to branch out to the big screen. The vocalist has signed on to make his feature film acting debut in the upcoming Woodhaven Pictures film 'Army of the Damned.'
Godsmack's Sully Erna is proud of his deeply personal solo record 'Avalon,' so much so that he's planned special trips for a handful of fans that purchased the box set edition of his disc. Erna included "golden tickets" with select box sets that would provide the winner with one of five luxury trips to a special location. The cameras joined Sully and his significant other Joanna as they met with the first winner -- Jeremy Hodge Costello and his girlfriend Carlye -- at California's Catalina Island just last week (March 1-3).
