New Jersey based metalcore outfit God Forbid has revealed that they have recruited a new guitar player in the shape of former Himsa guitarist Matt Wicklund. An excerpt from guitarist/vocalist Doc Coyle's blog reads as follows:

"This past fall and winter has been a refocusing period on a personal and business level for God Forbid figuring what the next phase of this band will be. Another announcement is that Matt Wicklund (WARREL DANE, ex-HIMSA,) is our new guitar player. He relocated to New Jersey and immediately started contributing new material. Along with being a great guy, he fit in with all of us really well, and it seemed like a no brainer. It's hard to say what the new material will be like, but so far I can say it's going to be very hook oriented, and obviously without Dallas, it will have a different vibe. Matt and I have very similar musical tastes, but he comes from a more trained background in theory which should create an interesting dynamic. He is also a very good lead guitar player, so there will probably be more solos. As soon as we do a new photo shoot, we will update all of our websites with Matt. We'll see you on tour!"

He is a decent guitarist. I'm not the biggest fan of God Forbid, but I think Wicklund would be a pretty ace fit.

Good to see that they at least have a replacement. I'm a huge God Forbid fan and it's gonna be a completely different vibe with Dallas gone cuz he was one of the main writers in the band and had great clean vocals as well. Good luck to GF all the way. STAY METAL MY FRIENDS!
