During the writing sessions of IV by Godsmack, lead singer Sully Erna encountered writer's block so Tony Rombola, Shannon Larkin, and Robbie Merill went to the studio and recorded music. After writing almost 40 songs, only 14 were used (Two being bonus songs). The left-over songs were then recycled by the members after they recruited Whitfield Crane of Ugly Kid Joe and Another Animal was born. Soon joining the band was friend and former Godsmack and Dropbox guitarist Lee Richards. The band released its self titled debut album in 2007 and first single "Broken Again" reached No. 8 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. To support their debut album, Another Animal opened for Alter Bridge on tour in late 2007.
Another Animal will release a single titled "Fall of Rome". The track is produced by Dave Fortman. Drummer Shannon Larkin hopes that if the single is a success they will make a new album, a follow up to their self-titled debut album of 2007. He said "If the song does well enough at radio, we will tour in the fall and make a new record as well."
