Earlier this year Vagus Nerve played their first show in Brooklyn, NY. That’s the band that ex-God Forbid guitarist Doc Coyle has been playing with the past few years. Featuring vocalist Ravi Orr of Phyllotaxis, Aden Oxenreider on bass guitar, Moe Watson from Aliens (and touring with Shai Hulud right now) on drums, and guitarist Mike Gowen of Mother, the band has finally released a “test mix” of the song “Do You Know Who I Am.”
Said Coyle on the first new material he’s written since leaving God Forbid in 2013:
“This is a big deal for me, and I couldn’t be more excited. I know it’s way different than God Forbid and might not be old fans’ cup of tea, but I really do hope you guys enjoy it!”
Vagus Nerve also launched a crowdfunding campaign to hire Forrester Savell (who produced Karnivool’s Sound Awake) to mix and master their debut EP, Visceral, which was recorded in 2014.
