GOD FORBID: 'Where We Come From' Video Teaser

A teaser clip for "Where We Come From", the new video from New Brunswick, New Jersey's melodic, thrash-metal warriors GOD FORBID, can be seen below. The performance footage for the clip was filmed on February 24 at Dingbatz in Clifton, New Jersey with director Tommy Jones (ALL SHALL PERISH, KATAKLYSM).

Commented GOD FORBID lead guitarist Matt Wicklund: "'Where We Come From' is a really cool video for us because it gives an honest glimpse into a real day in the life of all of us and takes you through the entire journey from the daily grind to doing what we love on stage!"

"Where We Come From" comes off GOD FORBID's new album, "Equilibrium", which will be released on March 27 via Victory Records. The bulk of the CD was recorded by Mark Lewis (THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, WHITECHAPEL, DEVILDRIVER, TRIVIUM), with Jason Suecof (TRIVIUM, ALL THAT REMAINS, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, CHIMAIRA, DEVILDRIVER) stepping in during the the vocal-tracking stage. The effort was mixed by acclaimed Swedish producer Jens Bogren, who has previously worked with such acts as KATATONIA, OPETH, PARADISE LOST and AMON AMARTH.

The official release/listening party for "Equilibrium" will be held on Friday, March 16 at Duff's Brooklyn in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

"With the new album, we focused on writing tight, hooky metal songs," commented guitarist/vocalist Doc Coyle on the creative process for "Equilibrium", "There are some really fast, super heavy, groovy songs – some of the catchiest, most melodic songs we've ever written. We wanted a modern, but organic-sounding album that was tight but still captured the intensity of the band. The album sounds huge!"

Coyle went on to speak about the overall theme of the album, "The title of the album says it all — it's about finding your way when you're lost. The lyrics come from a very personal, very real place. The recurring lyrical theme is about the everyday struggles of life and what it takes to persevere and follow your dreams."

GOD FORBID's solidified line-up, newly managed under World Entertainment's Alexander Ford and Gunter Ford, includes lead vocalist Byron Davis, guitarist/vocalist Doc Coyle, bassist John "Beeker" Outcalt, Corey Pierce on drums and newest member Matt Wicklund on guitar.
