After promising fans months ago that new music was indeed on the way, hard rock veterans Godsmack is back with the powerful new song “Surrender”.
The band shared a short snippet of some of the song’s instrumentation, creating plenty of buzz as fans eagerly awaited the release of the first new music from Godsmack since the group released their eighth studio album, When legends are bornin 2018.
One thing that’s clear from “Surrender” is that 25 years after releasing their debut album, Godsmack are still the hit-writing heavyweights we’ve always known them to be. It is something to be cherished, especially considering that the singer earlier this year Sully Erna suggested that this new album may be the band’s last.
“‘Surrender’ is a very cut and dry song,” says vocalist and guitarist Sully Erna. “It’s simply about the exhaustion we all can feel at times because of the redundancy of fighting with each other. At a certain point in our lives we submit to putting aside who is right or wrong, we will just make it STOP! So we wave the white flag.”

When legends are born reached no. 8 on the Billboard 200, the sixth consecutive Godsmack record to crack the chart’s Top 10. It has also been certified gold by the RIAA and was the sixth album by the group to achieve gold status or higher in the US.
