GOD FORBID guitarist Doc Coyle has issued the following update:
"Doc here just checking in to give everyone a heads up on the GF camp. We just returned from our most successful European tour to date doing a bunch of insane festivals with some of the biggest bands in the world as well as some off-dates with ANTHRAX, DEVILDRIVER, and DOWN which also kicked ass! Big thanks to our European supporters and all the bands we jammed and partied with. On to current events, we hop on a plane tonight to start the Rockstar Mayhem Tour which could possibly be the sickest tour of our lives. We've been on the road since the day Earthsblood dropped, and we're firing on all cylinders right now! Prepare to have your face ripped off if you make it to any of these shows. We play at 3:30pm on the Jager Stage everyday right before All That Remains. Be there or be fucked! We'll also be doing signings/meet & greets for Jagermeister, Rockstar shortly after our set, so don't be shy.
I also have a few other announcements. We a new fill-in guitar player. Matt Wicklund, formerly of HIMSA and a contributer to the WARREL DANE solo record, is handling second guitar duties in the meantime, and we're having a great time with him. Say hi to him on tour. He's the pretty boy with the hat. The second bit of news is that I will be playing bass, filling in for Paulo from TRIVIUM, on the first Mayhem date in Sacramento. He's getting his wisdom teeth done. Wish him well. The last piece of news is that our song 'Empire of the Gun' from Earthsblood will be featured on a Mayhem Tour Download Pack on Rock Band. Other bands featured on the pack are MARILYN MANSON, CANNIBAL CORPSE, and more. Check it our here.
