US heavy rockers Godsmack have officially confirmed writing material for their next studio effort, tentatively scheduled for an early 2014 release. "That's right motherf--kers! We are in Florida writing for the next album!" the group enthusiastically posted on Facebook along with the photo below. The four-piece previously shared two studio photos saying "Do you know what this means?" and "What about this?" After spending most of 2012 out on the road, Godsmack took a break throughout the greater part of the current year. According to frontman Sully Erna, the break was by all means in order. "We're going to take some time away now because we just ran for the last two years," he told Artist Direct. "It's time for us to take a break and get away from the markets for a little bit so we don't overplay them." The band's latest studio effort, "The Oracle," saw its release in May 2010 through Universal Records as the fifth record in Godsmack opus. It peaked at No. 1 on the US Billboard 200 chart.
