GOD FORBID Guitarist: New Album Is 'Our Most Dynamic, Complex, And Diverse Effort To Date'

GOD FORBID guitarist Doc Coyle has posted the following message on the group's official web site:

"The recording process for the new GOD FORBID album, 'IV: Constitution of Treason', is finally complete. This record sounds massive, and is definitely our most dynamic, complex, and diverse effort to date. It clocks in around 50 minutes which would make it our longest album, and will hopefully make up for some of the people who thought 'Gone Forever' was too short. I don't want to hype it up by telling everyone how great it is. I'd rather wait until some clips are released through the Internet or CD samplers, and let the music speak for itself. I can say that band is very satistfied with the work we've done, and feel like another plateau has been reached as musicians. Lyrically, the album is very deep and dark. In fact, 'Constitution' has become a full-on concept album with a story included about a post-apocalyptic society. This story and its themes intertwines heavily with the artwork handled wonderfully again by Travis Smith, who did the design work for 'Gone Forever' and the 'Better Days' EP. With the exception of some weekend tour dates in July, GOD FORBID will be taking the rest of the summer off, for our first real break in a year and a half. Our next U.S. tour should be expected near the album's release date, September 20th, and a European tour should follow. We've also taken some steps in the next frontier. That's right playing some shows on M-A-R-S. Mars Bitches. See y'all at the beach. Peace. "
