Gojira Premiere “The Chant” Video

Gojira have premiered a new video for their song “The Chant.” This track is from the band’s new album “Fortitude,“ which was released today (April 30). The clip was filmed in the West Bengal region of India and it “examines the plight of refugee children from Tibet who fled their homeland in an attempt to preserve their culture following China’s invasion of the country in 1949.” Joe Duplantier commented:

“This work is inspired by the reading of Tenzin Tsundue’s poetry. A righteous Tibetan activist, that describes the cultural genocide perpetrated on its people. We’ve always been sensitive to the Tibetan struggle. One of the wisest and most compassionate traditions, victim of the worst human rights violations imaginable since its invasion in 1949. Tibetan culture inspired many of our lyrics and had a deep impact on our approach of philosophy and art in general. Our thoughts go out to all Tibetans. We’re hoping that we’ll see their land free from oppression in our lifetime.”

Gojira Premiere New Song “Into The Storm”

Gojira have premiered a new song titled “Into The Storm.” This track is from the band’s new album “Fortitude,“ which will be released on April 30. Joe Duplantier commented:

“This song is infused with the concept of civil disobedience. Acting accordingly with our deepest wisdom and standing for what is precious and good in this world. The only possible revolution is the one that blossoms from within us. Change will come from individuals. Laws are meant to be bent and shaped to our vital needs. LAWS WILL FOLLOW!”

Gojira Premiere “Amazonia” Music Video

Gojira have premiered a new video for their new song “Amazonia.” This track is from the band’s new album “Fortitude,” which will be released on April 30. The group said the following:

“Our new song “Amazonia” is available now! Proceeds from the song will benefit The Articulation of Indigenous Peoples of Brazil (APIB) who advocate for environmental and cultural rights of indigenous tribes in the Amazon who have suffered immensely – victims of deforestation, land loss, forced labor, violence, and harassment.”

With this news, the band have also premiered a new video for their new song “Born For One Thing.” Vocalist/guitarist Joseph Duplantier had the following to say about the track, which has an anti-consumerist message that was “partially inspired by the Tibetan and Thai philosophers he read in his youth back in France”:

“We have to practice detaching ourselves from everything, beginning with actual things..Own less possessions, and give what you don’t need away, because one day we’ll have to let everything go, and if we don’t, we’ll just become ghosts stuck between dimensions.”
