Doc Coyle Reveals That God Forbid Have A Tour Offer, Says He Wants Olly Steele To Play Second Guitar For The Band If They Reunite

During a recent episode of his “The Ex-Man With Doc Coyle” podcast, Doc Coyle (Bad Wolves) revealed that his old band God Forbid recently received a tour offer. It is still unclear if the band will take the deal, but if they do, ex-Monuments guitarist Olly Steele has already been offered a chance to take part in the reunion as a replacement for Dallas Coyle.

The following exchange took place on the aforementioned podcast [via The PRP]

Doc Coyle: “So God Forbid has been getting some offers for tours and reunions and stuff—and I don’t even know if it’ll happen or not—but if it does happen, would Olly Steele be down to play second guitar in God Forbid, if it happened?”

Olly Steele: “Are you shitting me?”

Doc Coyle: “No, I’m not shitting you.”

Olly Steele: “Where’s Dallas?…”

Doc Coyle: “Dallas… He’s done with me. He had his run and now he’s done.”

Olly Steele: “I can’t think of anything that would be more fun… If I’m free. I’m not saying I’d never be in a band again, you know.”

Doc Coyle: “If you’re down to do it… The thing about it, it’s not even really being in a band. It’ll probably be some shows and maybe a tour. But there’s nothing crazy, we’d probably take it one step at a time.

And like I said, I don’t even know if the other guys want to do it. I think we’re supposed to have a conference call, kinda talk to everyone and see what the vibe is. But we have a tour offer right now, for a European tour, which I don’t know if we’re gonna do or not.

But it just kinda seems like things have come around and there’s renewed interest in the band. And if I was gonna get someone, you’d be the guy I want to get. So I thought I’d ask you here.”

Olly Steele: “That’s amazing, 1000% yes.”

Doc Coyle: “Awesome, alright now I’m excited. I thought you’d say yes.”

Olly Steele: “You’re excited? I was 15-16-years-old playing guitar for the first time and learning from you and Dallas, and this has just happened, that’s amazing.”

Doc Coyle: “Well, I can’t have anymore white people in the band alright? [laughs].”

Olly Steele: “It’s a shame that it may not be the original lineup, BUT, let’s fucking play “Into The Wasteland” seven times in a row.”
