God Forbid is preparing to release a sixth full-length album and Victory debut, "Equilibrium," on March 26th. The forthcoming effort was produced by Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, Whitechapel), Jason Suecof (Bury Your Dead, Chimaira) and mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Amon Amarth).

“With the new album, we focused on writing tight, hook-y metal songs,” commented guitarist/vocalist Doc Coyle on the creative process for Equilibrium, “There are some really fast, super heavy, groovy songs – some of the catchiest, most melodic songs we’ve ever written. We wanted a modern, but organic-sounding album that was tight but still captured the intensity of the band. The album sounds huge!”

Coyle went on to speak about the overall theme of the album, “The title of the album says it all – it’s about finding your way when you’re lost. The lyrics come from a very personal, very real place. The recurring lyrical theme is about the everyday struggles of life and what it takes to persevere and follow your dreams.”

God Forbid’s solidified line-up, newly managed under World Entertainment’s Alexander Ford and Gunter Ford, includes lead vocalist Byron Davis, guitarist/vocalist Doc Coyle, bassist John “Beeker” Outcalt, Corey Pierce on drums and newest member Matt Wicklund on guitar. The band will support "Equilibrium" with heavy touring. Pre-orders and package deals for "Equilibrium," featuring brand new merch, are now available here.

God Forbid will debut brand new material at the following upcoming headlining shows in February:

Feb. 18 - Brooklyn, NY - St. Vitus
Feb. 24 - Clifton, NJ – Dingbatz
