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.”

Deftones issued the following statement:

“As everyone knows, difficult decisions are a part of life, and we faced one recently. After much contemplation, we’ve made the decision to postpone our summer tour with Gojira one more time. As passionate as you are about seeing us, we are even more so to be back on stage together again. With the imminence of the tour, and the pandemic lasting longer than we anticipated, we came to the realization that uncertainty still remains in different markets throughout the country. We do not want to be in a situation where shows have to be adjusted or cancelled on short notice for any guideline adjustments or reconsiderations while we are on the road.

This is not an easy decision, but one we felt necessary. Giving this tour a little more breathing room will give space to, and help ensure we can make every date with confidence. We can’t thank you enough for your patience so far, and keeping with it just a bit longer. April will be here before we all know it.

If you bought tickets for one of the 2021 shows and cannot make the rescheduled show, you will receive an email directly allowing you to request a refund. For more details, please visit Livenation.com/refund. Please hold on to your tickets, as they will be honored for the 2022 dates. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Tickets for the added dates (Las Vegas, Cincinnati, Nashville) go on sale Friday, 7/16 @ 10AM local.

(Note: Poppy will not be joining us on the rescheduled North American dates)

See you all soon.
