This is something to get pumped for! French metal band Gojira announced new U.S. tour dates. Torche and Code Orange will be rocking the stage along with them.
The band’s 2016 album Magma received massive success. It achieved numerous spots on Best Metal Albums of 2016 lists, putting the group in the spotlight. Metallica asked Gojira to join them on their Worldwired tour, which they are still wrapping up. Gojira is also set to play at some festivals as well as a show in Brooklyn with Converge.
Gojira’s headlining U.S. tour will kick off on October 2 in Cleveland, Ohio. Their last show with Torche and Code Orange will take place on October 19 in San Diego, California. Their last U.S. tour show will be a standalone performance at the Aftershock Festival.
Frontman Joe Duplantier said of the newest album, “The only thing we have to do is be true to ourselves. We were a little tense when it came out and a few comments were like, ‘Ugh, oh my God,’ but then how something is really taking shape you know we are feeling more and more comfortable with the new songs enough to care to sing onstage and I go for it and it’s great. It’s really great, it’s a journey.”
