GOD FORBID Deny Singer Departure, Prepare To Record New Album

New Jersey-based quintet GOD FORBID have finally broken their silence regarding the status of their singer, Byron Davis. Davis was previously rumored to have left the group just as they were preparing to enter the studio to begin work on the follow-up to their critically acclaimed Century Media debut, "Determination".

"In an effort to dispel the flurry of rumors floating around, GOD FORBID would like to announce that Byron Davis is still the lead singer of the band," the group said in an official statement. "First, we would like to apologize for our silence since these rumors began circulating. We've been concentrating solely on writing the best material possible and refused to be sidetracked in any way. We are all really excited about the new songs. In fact, we feel stronger about this material than anything we've done before. You can expect things to get a bit heavier and with more groove than anything on 'Determination'. This will be a new beginning for us and we don't think any of you will be disappointed."

Davis added, "Recently there were some differences of opinion amongst the band that led to some rumors being spread and since then things have been settled. GOD FORBID are now striving for a new level of complexity with less boundaries and we are now more focused than ever. We promise everyone that this will be a record well worth the wait."

GOD FORBID will begin recording the new album sometime in May for a late 2003 release through Century Media Records.
