Godsmack drummer Shannon Larkin recently sat down with Chris Bradshaw of NaplesNews.com to discuss the bands current spot on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, what the band will be doing after that tour, and Another Animal - Larkin's side project with Godsmack bandmate Robbie Merril.

Larkin said that Godsmack has enjoyed exposure to new fans by being on this year's Mayhem Festival, which wraps up this weekend in Florida. Godsmack will continue touring through September, post Mayhem Fest, heading through Canada, Alaska, and Hawaii, promoting their latest album 'The Oracle' Then, Larkin says:

Then it’s Another Animal time! We go to radio sometime in the next month with a new track “Fall of Rome,” that is a heavy, charged track about the recent overthrowing of lame leaders and governments by the ones with the real power: the people. Egypt, Tunisia and now Libya are repeating history before the eyes of the world stage, and this song is like an oppressed person talking directly to an unjust dictator saying “enough!” If the song does well enough at radio, we will tour in the fall and make a new record as well.

Another Animal is Shannon Larkin on drums, original Godsmack guitarist Lee Richards, current Godsmack bassist Robbie Merrill and guitarist Tony Rombola, and Ugly Kid Joe vocalist Whitfield Crane. Another Animal released their self titled debut in October 2007
