God Forbid just announced two northeast area headlining shows to celebrate the completion of their forthcoming album. Check out the dates below.

Guitarist Doc Coyle says of the band's desire to play shows, "With only one show in 2011 and two months spent in the recording studio, we have been itching to get out and play. We thought it would be a great idea to get into an intimate setting in our area for the real GF fans. Expect to hear some new songs and some old cuts that haven't played in awhile. 2012 will be a great year!"

In 2009, co-founding guitarist, and Doc's brother, Dallas Coyle left God Forbid and was replaced by Matt Wicklund, a former member of Himsa. The forthcoming album will be the New Jersey metallers' follow-up to 2009's 'Earthsblood.' It will be God Forbid's first release under their new deal with Victory Records.

God Forbid dates:

Feb 18th - Brooklyn, NY @ St. Vitus (support TBA)

Feb 24th - Clifton, NJ @ Dingbatz w/ Bound Alive, Lesson in Violence & more TBA
