Godsmack side project The Apocalypse Blues Revue has shared a new song called “Open Spaces.” The track is the second single released from the band’s upcoming album, The Shape Of Blues To Come, which is due out on July 20th.
The Apocalypse Blues Revue features Godsmack guitarist Tony Rombola and drummer Shannon Larkin. The other members of the group are frontman Ray “Rafer John” Cerbone and bassist Brian Carpenter.
Larkin said about the new LP, which follows up 2016’s self-titled debut, “We’re very excited about this second record. I’ve never seen four wills join so strongly with one intent as I have in this band. That’s something special.”
According to the band’s official bio, Larkin discovered Cerbone at a biker bar. He explained, “It wasn’t a recruitment at all. It wasn’t like I was a guy in a big band, and he was starstruck at all. I went over to Ray’s house with my wife to have dinner, and I happened to see his guitar sitting in the corner. I didn’t know what he did, so I asked him to play a song, and I really loved his voice.”
