Gojira commented:

“We cannot express how much we appreciate your continued patience and support while we worked through last month’s postponement.

Despite our best efforts to resume touring this month, the continued uncertainty in various territories has left us with no other choice but to reschedule the remaining dates of the tour as well.

In light of this unfortunate news we are pleased to share the rescheduled dates for the entire European Tour below.

All tickets for the original show dates are valid and for additional information please visit www.gojira-music.com

Gojira Postpone First Leg Of Their European Tour

Gojira have postponed the first leg of their upcoming European tour. The band issued the following statement:

“Due to the current COVID restrictions in place across Europe, we are sadly forced to postpone the first leg of the Gojira European tour due to start on Monday, January 17th 2022 in Helsinki, and ending Wed February 9th 2022 in Bordeaux. We are currently working on rescheduling all postponed shows and plan to announce the new schedule shortly. Please hold on to your tickets which will be valid for the new dates to be published imminently. We will be back together before you know it to experience the healing power of live music again. We appreciate your patience and understanding. Stay safe and healthy.“

Gojira’s Joe Duplantier: “I Wouldn’t Be Surprised If It Gets A Bit Harder On The Next Album”

During a recent interview with Revolver, Gojira vocalist/guitarist Joe Duplantier revealed that drummer Mario Duplantier is already working on ideas for the band’s next record. He then went on to say that he “wouldn’t be surprised if it gets a bit harder on the next album.”

Joe Duplantier said the following:

“Mario‘s on fire. He’s throwing drum patterns at me day and night, and I’m like, ‘Wait, wait, wait, let me digest what we’ve just been through.’ I almost, sort of out of respect for Fortitude, don’t want to think about a new album now because we’re about to go on tour in Europe and it’s going to be one of the biggest tours we’ve ever done in terms of capacity. So I’m really, really focused on that.

There’s one thing I gotta say, though. As much as I appreciate melodies and exploring new vibes and new tonalities with Gojira, I’m still a death-metal head in my heart, and Mario, too. And after doing this album that’s more toward a rock approach — although there’re metal elements in it — I wouldn’t be surprised if it gets a bit harder on the next album.”

Scientists Name Three New Fossils After Gojira

Paleontologists Lea Numberger and Ben Thuy from the Natural History Museum Luxembourg and biologist Tania Pineda from the Florida Museum of Natural History have named three new brittle star fossils after Gojira. Two specimens will be called Ophiogojira labadiei and Ophiogojira andreui, while a third closely-related fossil will be called Ophioduplantiera noctiluca. Gojira commented:

“Meet Ophiogojira, a 190-million-year old brittle star named after Gojira. The new fossil comprises two species, Ophiogojira labadiei and Ophiogojira andreui, honoring Gojira’s Jean-Michel Labadie and Christian Andreu, respectively. A third closely related fossil from the same collection was named after Joe and Mario Duplantier: Ophioduplantiera noctiluca. The new fossils were discovered by paleontologists Lea Numberger and Ben Thuy from the Natural History Museum Luxembourg, and biologist Tania Pineda from the Florida Museum of Natural History. Gojira are now part of Earth’s history, and a small step closer to immortality.”
