Doc Coyle of Metalcore monsters God Forbid has returned to the metal scene with new band Vagus Nerve. The band came together in 2014 and features fellow metalcore veteran Moe Watson of Shai Hulud. After a successful Kickstarter campaign raising 50% above their goal to hire Forrester Savell (12 Foot Ninja, Karnivool) to mix and master their debut, the atmospheric rock band is ready to take the next step. Speaking about the band, Doc had the following to say :
“I started Vagus Nerve because I felt modern rock needed a giant dose of authenticity. Everyone is concerned with making 3 minute songs for the radio with copy-cat recordings that sound more like computers than a real fucking rock n roll band. I was lucky to find 4 other musicians that are more talented than me, and yet still manage to bring a humility that forged an instantaneous chemistry. I know the British fans will embrace Vagus Nerve, because they have good taste and most importantly, passion. I was last in the UK touring with Unearth in 2013, and it was amazing to see how many supporters I still have. I can’t wait to take our journey to the UK as soon as possible.”
