God Forbid Lose Guitarist
2009-03-31 by Frederick Metzengerstein | 22 Comments

God Forbid guitarist Dallas Coyle has left the band. His brother Doc left the following statement.

"There has been a barrage of rumors and questions on whether or not Dallas has left God Forbid. It’s true that Dallas has left the band. It’s taken us a few days to confirm this definitely, and figure out what we were going to do considering the fact that we are starting a very important tour with Lamb of God this week.

I don’t want to go into the hairy details, but all I can say is that there was a mutual disagreement between Dallas and I, and the disagreement became angry on both sides, and he decided to sit out the tour the day we were supposed to leave. We later learned he did not want to tour anymore at all. Everyone in the band, including myself, was upset and shocked. For me, it’s a lot tougher because he’s my brother and I have a very close bond with him. We’ve done everything together our whole lives, so it’s difficult to deal with emotionally but I understand he has bigger responsibilities at home to care for. I wish he would’ve handled it in a different way, but I am not angry at him for leaving if he is unhappy with our situation. I really hope he finds success and happiness in his future pursuits.

In the meantime, we’ve recruited ex-Darkest Hour shredder Kris Norris to fill in for the tour. We are currently doing a few warm up shows as a four piece to meet the LoG tour in Phoenix, Arizona, on April 2nd. Kris will be there for the start of the LoG tour though. I’ve been friends with Kris for years and have an immense amount of respect for his playing. I look forward to playing with him, and I’m sure he will knock it out the park! Byron and I will pick up the slack with the vocals as much as we can. Thanks for everyone’s continued support, and we’ll see you on the road!”

Band, as of recently, was mediocre and now with Kris Norris will continue to putter down the same road.
