GOD FORBID Complete New Video, Announce Ozzfest Offdates

July 2, 2004

New Jersey metalcore giants GOD FORBID have just completed filming the video for “Antigone” with director Dale Resteghini (FEAR FACTORY, HATEBREED). Look for it to make its Fuse and MTV2 debuts early next month. The band will be doing double duty this summer as they play the second stage at Ozzfest along with offdates with band such as SLAYER, SLIPKNOT, and HATEBREED.

Guitarist Dallas Coyle checks in with this report:

“We just got back from Europe as part of the New Wave Of American Heavy Metal tour. It was great to play and hang out again with all of our buddies in CHIMAIRA, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE and Shadows Fall. This may have been one of our drunkest tours ever. A good 95% of the shows were sold out, so we’d like to thank those bands for bringing us out and giving us invaluable exposure. This was GOD FORBID’s first time in Europe outside of the UK, with shows in Holland and Germany. We would definitely like to make it back overseas to do a full European tour at the end of this year or beginning of 2005. We’re working on some scenarios right now that could be very exciting.

“We have been on the road since the day Gone Forever came out, and we are really appreciating the couple weeks of rest to recharge our batteries before Ozzfest starts. I can’t describe in words how excited we are to be a part of this tour. It’s going to be unreal! Make sure to get there early to check out the Hellfest resembling 2nd stage. Also, our off-date tour is turning out to be a dream come true as well. The majority of the dates have us sharing the bill with HATEBREED, SLAYER and SLIPKNOT, as well as a few more shows with DIMMU BORGIR and BLEEDING THROUGH.”
