GOD FORBID wrapped up an extremely successfully 2007 as part of the Stillborn Fest playing alongside HATEBREED and AGNOSTIC FRONT, among others but will now concentrate solely on completing their much anticipated new full-length release. The group also recently completed work on their first DVD, which is tentatively slated for a spring release. However, the DVD remains without a title, so GOD FORBID decided to put this task into the hands of their fans. See below for additional info.
Doc Coyle (guitars, vocals) states: â€œGOD FORBID has been kicking for 10 years strong, and we are consistently blown away by how loyal our fans have been through our musical evolution. It’s definitely time to give something back. The GF camp have been having some trouble coming up with a title for our upcoming DVD, so Dallas (guitars, vocals) thought it might a good idea to involve our faithful fans in our creative process by letting you name the DVD. Yes, YOU motherfucker! Put on your thinking caps and become part of GOD FORBID history.
â€œThis contest will only be running for a week, and the grand prize winner will get their name listed in the DVDâ€™s credits, receive an autographed copy of the DVD, an ESP/Cocaine Energy drink guitar and a case of Cocaine Energy drinks. The two runner ups will also receive a bunch of other awesome stuff. We’re going to pick the top three and have everyone vote on the best title from there. We will announce the winner on Jan. 28th. Good luck and let the games begin!â€
Please send all DVD title submissions to [email protected] and be sure to include your full name, age and mailing address. The contest runs through 12PM on Friday, Jan. 25th.
Coyle further comments: â€œThis is going to be a big year for GOD FORBID as we will be releasing our first ever DVD and our first new album since 2005. The DVD is pretty much done, except for the menus, and we still need a title. I’ve already mentioned how incredible the concert portion looks and sounds, but the band was fortunate enough to be able to screen the documentary portion, directed by Denise Korycki, and we were all blown away. It is a combination of historical insight, introspection into our personalities, social commentary and some god damn funny ass shit. I guess we were sick of being funny on other bands DVDs. If you consider yourself a true GOD FORBID fan, this DVD will be essential. I think this DVD ranks among the best metal DVDs on the market.
â€œIn regards to the new album, we are a lot further along in the writing process. We have a few songs completed, and probably a dozen more in the works. So far the material is extremely varied. I can also say that Dallas and I have started using seven string guitars, so tonally there will be more variety.
â€œWe will be heading into the studio at the beginning of March with our longtime producer and friend, Eric Rachel at Trax East. So the album we probably come out mid to late summer. Let’s keep our fingers crossed on that front. We will also begin videotaping rehearsals and recording, and releasing some YouTube updates as the process continues. Keep your eyes and ears open for those. More news to follow soonâ€
