GOD FORBID Records MUSE Cover For New Album

August 14, 2008

New Jersey metal titans GOD FORBID have recorded a cover version of a song by the English alternative rock band MUSE for their forthcoming studio album, tentatively due in early 2009 via Century Media Records. GOD FORBID guitarist Dallas Coyle states, "My brother [fellow GOD FORBID guitarist Doc Coyle] is a big fan of MUSE so we covered the song 'Stockholm Syndrome'. We were worried as hell about it but in the end it sounded pretty killer! The record is sounding very good so far from the test mixes we've been receiving. I know before I said I had no idea what it sounds like but now I do: It sounds CRAZY!"

Dallas previously stated about the upcoming CD, "There's a song called 'Bat The Angels' that is very different than anything we've ever done. It's very dark and brooding but we have some stuff that's very thrash and traditionally melodic. I guess we've always done a lot of different things from record to record but this record seems to be going a bit far. We have a title for the record which I can't divulge yet but I really think we should call it '?'. I don't know what the fuck it's going to be! I hope that's exciting for you guys and girls who care."

On the subject of the band's decision to delay the album's release until 2009, Dallas said, "Our mixing situation fell through and we're taking our time now. Rushing a record is the worst thing you can do especially when it's as important as this record is for us. Look for a January/February release for the new GF album. I'm excited because I have a lot of time off to market this record and get my shit together in general."
