Doc Coyle On God Forbid Ever Reuniting: “No One’s Really Knocking Down Our Door”


While he is currently out enjoying success as a member of Bad Wolves, guitarist Doc Coyle originally came to be known in the metal scene as a member of God Forbid. That band have been inactive since around 2013 following Coyle‘s departure. Speaking recently on the ‘BREWtally Speaking Podcast‘ (hear it below,) Coyle was jokingly asked about God Forbid reuniting, to which he replied:

“I don’t know about that. Like I said, friends with everybody, it’s just I’m so busy. No one’s really knocking down our door.”

When It was pointed out that fellow New Jersey metalcore veterans E.Town Concrete have been reuniting for select shows to large crowds, he replied:

“Here’s the thing, E.Town was probably about 3-4x bigger that we were in our home area. I’m sure we could do like 1 reunion show and maybe sell it out, but I don’t know. I’ve [got] low confidence in how many give a shit to be honest.”

He continued:

“…It’s hard to gauge if people really care that much, if that makes sense? I’m not saying those people don’t, but it just might be those people. I don’t know if you see comments online if that means there’s hundreds or thousands of people that also feel that way who just aren’t there. It may be true, I’m just… ah, I don’t even know if that’s even a good enough reason to do anything. It would really have to come from a place of ‘hey man, this would sound fun’ or ‘this would be cool’.

Truth be told, no matter what, it’d be a lot of work just getting things together, rehearsing, booking, gear, everything. It’s a lot, but you never know. We’ll have to see that the future holds, but I love all those guys. I love the music and I’m proud of our legacy and I’m happy people still kinda care, cause I do think we did something really cool.”
