New Jersey thrashcore titan, God Forbid will unveil its sixth studio effort, Equilibrium to the world on March 26. But Big Apple faithful can get an early dose on Friday March 16 at Duff’s in Brooklyn, New York. The listening party is sure to attract many a local fan and metal artist.
Equilibrium marks year 15 for the band which still returns four of its five original members; vocalist Byron Davis, bassist John Outcalt, drummer Corey Pierce and lead guitarist Doc Coyle. The newest addition is rhythm guitarist Matt Wicklund who replaced Dallas Coyle three years ago. This is the band’s first album without Dallas, and the first since 2009’s Earthsblood.
The album was produced by Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, Whitechapel), Jason Suecof (Bury Your Dead, Chimaira, Mutiny Within) and mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Amon Amarth).
Sonically and personally Equilibrium is an explosive new chapter in the band’s signature story, adding more textures and expanding in subtle but invigorating ways on its classic sound.
Next month, in support of Equilibrium, God Forbid will join legendary thrash merchants, Overkill on a four-week coast to coast tour starting in Philly on April 20th and rounding it all out back in New York City on March 12. see dates below.
This week the band offers up a teaser video for the track “Where We Come From” which follows on the heals of the audio teaser for “Don’t Tell Me What To Dream”. If that’s not enough the band released four video’s for the making of the album, all of which can be viewed below.
