On October 29th, 2012 the east coast experienced one of the largest Atlantic hurricanes on record that affected millions and destroyed thousands of homes, businesses and communities in its path. Hurricane Sandy made landfall in Atlantic City, New Jersey and ripped its way through New York City and other coastal communities. New Jersey melodic metallers GOD FORBID were personally affected by this storm as were their fans, family and friends. They are very pleased to announce that on Friday, January 11th at The Boneyard in Atlantic City they will be participating in Revive The Shore Part III, a concert series that will benefit areas affected by Hurricane Sandy. Doors open at 6 pm and tickets are available for $15 dollars in advance or $18 at the door. More information can be found here.
Vocalist Byron Davis comments, “We would like to wish everyone a belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. With that being said we should take this time and reflect on how tragedy can turn ones world upside down; we need to be grateful for the ones we have in our lives and remember those who have lost everything.”
He continues, “This benefit show gives us the opportunity to let our fellow New Jerseyians know that we have not forgotten them and will honor their struggles with pride. For one night, we will all come together for remembrance and fun to raise contributions that will help re-build communities and people’s spirits that were affected around the Jersey Shore. We are looking forward to seeing New Jersey stand together united. See you there!”
GOD FORBID has been rocking out for nearly fifteen years, sweeping the nation with one of the most promising forms of melodic thrash metal.
