Doc Coyle Has “Low Confidence in How Many Give a Shit” About a God Forbid Reunion
As with all broken-up bands, there is no doubt that God Forbid will reunite at some point. The only questions, really, are “When will that happen?” and “Will Dallas Coyle or Matt Wicklund be their second guitarist?”.
Obviously, we can’t answer either of those questions at this point… although I’d think the answer to the first question would be, “Not yet.” For one thing, the band only split up six years ago, which in broken-up band years is like a few months. My guess is we’re still five-ten years away from the metalcore revival; fans of the genre are still too young and unaware of their own impending deaths to be nostalgic for Ozzfest 2004 already. And for another thing, Bad Wolves are currently killing it (go see them on tour), so, clearly, guitarist Doc Coyle is incentivized to put all of his focus there.
Still, the BREWtally Speaking Podcast recently asked Doc about the possibility of a God Forbid reunion. Doc is far too polite of a dude to be all “Are you unaware of how well Bad Wolves are doing right now?”, but he did express “low confidence in how many give a shit,” asserting that “No one’s really knocking down our door” and begging for a reunion right now:
“…It’s hard to gauge if people really care that much, if that makes sense? I’m not saying those people don’t, but it just might be those people. I don’t know if you see comments online if that means there’s hundreds or thousands of people that also feel that way who just aren’t there. It may be true, I’m just… ah, I don’t even know if that’s even a good enough reason to do anything. It would really have to come from a place of ‘hey man, this would sound fun’ or ‘this would be cool’.
“Truth be told, no matter what, it’d be a lot of work just getting things together, rehearsing, booking, gear, everything. It’s a lot, but you never know. We’ll have to see that the future holds, but I love all those guys. I love the music and I’m proud of our legacy and I’m happy people still kinda care, cause I do think we did something really cool.”
Look, at this point in history, I’d make Vince Neil and Tommy Lee fight to the death for a God Forbid reunion (I recently listened to Constitution of Treason for the first time in awhile, and it still kicks all kinds of ass). And like I said, I’m 100% sure it will happen eventually. Just hang in there a minute, k?
