During a recent appearance on Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta‘s “The Jasta Show,” Doc Coyle addressed the idea of a God Forbid reunion once again. Notably, the guitarist confirmed that some “things have been in the works.”
Coyle said the following:
“We’ve been in talks, dates [have] been thrown around… So things have been in the works. But with my schedule with Bad Wolves touring and then I’m also doing The Wedding Band with Rob & Kirk with Metallica… I’ve been doing a lot of rehearsing with that and so there was a lot of scheduling conflicts with that.
I think [the reunion] will happen, it’s just a matter of when. Because Byron [Davis, vocalist], he has a family, he’s married, he’s got a house, he’s kind of doing that thing, everyone’s kind of spread out. Same thing with John [Outcalt], our bass player: got a kid, got a house, got a mortgage, wife and you know… everyone’s kind of moved to this different phase of their lives and it makes it really have to create space to do these things and it’s such a commitment of time and effort.
And I’m super respectful of that and I just don’t want to force anything, or make [reuniting] about money, or make it about… too much business. I want it to be about our friendship and kind of doing something for the fans.
‘Cause we never did a last show, we never did a last tour, we never did a farewell. And so I think that that left just an empty kind of space there. And it’s unfortunate, because I’m of the mind that I always wanted to do things the right way.
It’s kind of funny because it’s definitely come around. I peeked on that Loudwire thing and it’s just a buncha people like ‘God Forbid is so much better than Bad Wolves‘, and it’s like motherfucker where was you on our last tour when there was 112 people at the show.”
He went on to say that their was a European tour offer, but the band are considering the possibility of doing one-off shows and festival dates instead. He also revealed that he has some riff ideas that he could use for God Forbid if they decide to work on new music.
