GOD FORBID recently inked a merchandising, publishing and recording deal with Victory Records. The band’s new album is tentatively due in early 2012.
Commented GOD FORBID drummer Corey Pierce: “We are so excited to be a part of the Victory family. We are very proud to bring our music too all the maniacs out there who are fans of the band as well as this label. We look forward to starting a powerful partnership which will bring a new energy to the metal world.”
GOD FORBID guitarist Doc Coyle previously stated about the material for the band’s forthcoming CD, “It’s always difficult to tell how a new album will sound this early in the process, but I can say that our new guitar player Matt Wicklund [ex-HIMSA] is contributing tons of material. His stuff is very hook-oriented with a Scandinavian twinge.
“The stuff I’ve been writing has been varied from evil MORBID ANGEL, black metal shit to mid-tempo/power groove MACHINE HEAD-type stuff, and signature GOD FORBID material that is a logical progression from our previous albums.”
GOD FORBID‘s last album, “Earthsblood”, sold around 5,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan, to land at position No. 110 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD debuted at No. 2 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
GOD FORBID‘s previous album, “IV: Constitution of Treason”, entered The Billboard 200 chart at No. 119 in September 2005 after shifting 8,300 units.
