GOD FORBID has canceled its week-long Canadian trek as direct support to PROTEST THE HERO. Their only remaining show for 2006 will be a headlining performance in Levittown, NY at Club Ritual on December 8. GOD FORBID will return to the road in 2007 to annihilate the masses headlining the Revolver-sponsored "Chains of Humanity" tour with GOATWHORE, MNEMIC, ARSIS, THE HUMAN ABSTRACT and BYZANTINE in the support slots. This tour is GOD FORBID's first headlining run in support of their latest acclaimed album, "IV: Constitution of Treason", and is a package that guarantees total brutality and devastation from start to finish.
Commented Doc Coyle (guitars, vocals): "Due to an inability to come to an agreement over a discrepancy between the booking and announcing of a Toronto show on our on headline tour, GOD FORBID and PROTEST THE HERO mutually decided it would be best if we didn't take part in the upcoming Canadian run. We are very disappointed that this couldn't be worked out, but we are still friends and fans of PTH and consider this just a postponement of future touring that I'm sure will be bigger and better. Again, we apologize to any Canadian fans who already bought tickets. We will be playing Toronto and Montreal as part of our headline tour with GOATWHORE, MNEMIC, ARSIS, THE HUMAN ABSTRACT and BYZANTINE, so we hope to see you all then."
As previously reported, GOD FORBID has teamed up with video production company MyGoodEye to work on a special video for the song "Chains of Humanity" in celebration of the band's upcoming headlining tour with the same name. The video will be comprised of footage and photos spanning their entire career, and will help launch GFTV, which is an upcoming project GOD FORBID is working on currently. The band, along with acclaimed director David Brodsky (GWAR, THE RED CHORD) are asking fans, friends, family and anyone else that has photo or video files having to do with GOD FORBID to share them for the project. It will be put together as a tribute and thank you to their fans that have supported them through the years. This is not limited to just photos or videos of GOD FORBID performing; any files involving them (parties, pictures with fans, etc.) are encouraged. Anyone interested in helping out can upload their files here.
