The pride of New Jersey, GOD FORBID, are currently entering the final stretch of a very lengthy, successful trek with Lamb of God, As I Lay Dying, Children of Bodom and Municipal Waste. The group will then begin to prepare for their first multi-festival European run. There will also be some off-date club shows with Anthrax and Devildriver, as well as stops on major festivals such as Download, Graspop and With Full Force in support of their highly acclaimed, new album Earthsblood. The new offering scored the band their highest chart debut yet coming in at #110 on the Billboard Top 200.

Fans throughout North America get to see the band all summer long on the massive Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival as part of the Jägermeister stage alongside All That Remains and Trivium. Marilyn Manson and Slayer will top the bill on this year’s highly anticipated tour, which is set to kick off July 10 at the Sleep Train Amphitheatre in Sacramento, CA. Be sure to visit the bands official Myspace page to view the band’s complete touring schedule.

A new behind-the-scenes look into the making of the “War of Attrition” video, which was shot by acclaimed director Ian McFarland (Sick of It All), is now online on Youtube.

Doc Coyle (guitars, vocals) further comments: “Shooting videos kinda sucks. Especially performance videos. You have to head bang for 10 hours in a row, fake play your songs, and you don't even know if all the work will pay off with an awesome video. With that said, this is by far the best performance video we've ever had and it really captures the intensity of the song. As you can see from the clip, we really put our trust in Ian who was incredible to work with. Ian and his crew were super professional. I can't wait for everyone to see the finished product. And like Dave Chappelle says, ‘Everything looks better in slow motion.’ See you all this summer.”
