Gojira schedule debut headlining tour in North America for summer


Gojira, the peerless French progressive metal with a proactive message, has found a captive audience during the last few years in the United States. After opening some of the best attended small “big” metal package tours to cross the country (with bands such as Lamb of God, Behemoth, Job for a Cowboy, and In Flames), a young audience of fans has been turned on to the ultra-heavy, technical, groovy death metal attack of Gojira. Finally, after releasing the most ambitious and successful album of their career, these veteran Frenchmen have booked their first headlining tour of the continent. For those of us who have followed Gojira’s developing career from afar for the last decade, these full-length shows will be our first chance to see the band bring their complete, complex concert to an American audience. It’s great that the success of The Way of All Flesh has finally afforded them with this opportunity, and fans both old and new will undoubtedly be very excited for these shows.

Although, I’m not sure how well Gojira fans will respond to the chaotic hardcore stylings of The Chariot (fronted by former Norma Jean vox man Josh Scogin) or the grindcore of Car Bomb, it should be an exciting show for open-minded fans. They’ll be at Station 4 in St. Paul on May 11th, but you can keep reading for all of their tour dates…
