Guitarist Doc Coyle said earlier in 2021 that it's a "matter of when, not if" there would be a God Forbid reunion, and also mentioned that ex-Monuments guitarist Olly Steele might join in to replace ex-guitarist Dallas Coyle. While the latter hasn't come up yet, the "when" has been revealed! God Forbid will reunite for the first time in nearly a decade for the 2022 Blue Ridge Rock Festival.
"It's been 9 long years. You asked for this. We answered," said the band. "God Forbid is BACK to devastate the stage at the 2022 Blue Ridge Rock Festival."
"I wasn’t sure that this would ever happen but I can’t tell you how psyched I am to announce that God Forbid is reuniting to play this years @blueridgerockfest These are my brothers and I can’t wait to share this with the fans who’ve been waiting," added Coyle.
"Please follow the @godforbidofficial Instagram page and head over to Blue Ridge page to purchase tickets to the fest."
Blue Ridge Rock Festival will take place at the Virginia International Raceway in Alton, VA between September 8 and 11. Tickets and more information are available here.
