Ex-God Forbid Guitarist Doc Coyle To Play Bass For Unearth On Sepultura, Kataklysm, Etc. U.S. Tour


Former God Forbid guitarist Doc Coyle will be stepping in on bass for Unearth‘s John “Slo” Maggard during the bands coming U.S. run with Sepultura, Kataklysm and more (see the dates here.) Coyle said of the opportunity:

“I will be filling in on bass guitar for Unearth bassist, John “Slo” Maggard, on their upcoming US tour as direct support to the legendary Sepultura on the “Tsunami of Metal Tour” also featuring Kataklysm, Dark Sermon with Scar The Martyr and Anciients featured on select dates.

I have to say it is a complete and total honor that the boys in Unearth have considered me for the position. Unearth and God Forbid came up together in the mid/late 90’s hardcore scene slogging it out in the same VFW halls, basements, and Rec centers. They are truly dear, old friends, and I can’t wait to spend a month together smelling their farts. I am especially psyched to hit the road since it’s been almost been a year since I’ve toured. Let’s see if my headbangin’ neck stick works.”

No word yet on why Maggard will be sitting out the trek; though he has missed a number of the bands recent tours. Previous treks in the past year have seen Fear Factory‘s Matt DeVries and Iano Dovi (ex-Poison The Well) fill-in for him.
