Gojira Guitarist Christian Andreu Leaves Tour Early Following The Birth Of His Child

Gojira guitarist Christian Andreu has exited the band’s current tour with Deftones and Vowws so he can be home following the birth of his child. During his absence, Aldrick Guadagnino (Klone) will be filling in. The band commented:

“Christian returned home to be present with his first newborn child and so Aldrick Guadagnino of Klone @kloneband stepped up to the plate and killed it! He will be with us until the end of this tour. Somehow we managed to find a French man that shreds the guitar and looks exactly like Christian!!! 😱 #gojira #klone #deftones #vowws #washington Also… massive shout out to our buddies of @vowwsband that couldn’t make it today. Come back soon!!!”
