Yesterday, 2x Grammy® nominated band GOJIRA announced details of a fall U.S. headline tour. The new dates, which will feature special guests KNOCKED LOOSE and ALIEN WEAPONRY, are set to kick of October 11th in Salt Lake City, Utah at The Union and continue through a performance at Cleveland, Ohio’s The Agora on October 29th. Tickets for the dates are now on sale on THIS LOCATION.
The new headline dates will follow GOJIRA’s summer run supporting DEFTONES which gets underway August 12th at The Armory in Minneapolis, MN and includes two GOJIRA only headline dates on September 3th in Chattanooga, TN and September 20th in Boise, ID.
News of the U.S. headline tour follows the recent release of GOJIRA’s acclaimed new album Fortitude, which is available now on all streaming platforms. The powerful collection is highlighted by the singles “Another World,” “Born For One Thing,” “Into The Storm,” “Amazonia,” and most recently “The Chant,” a slow-burning track featuring some of Gojira’s most melodic material to date. Just last week the band shared an official music video for “The Chant,” which was written / conceived by the band’s own Joe Duplantier and directed by Russell Brownley. Filmed on location in India’s West Bengal region in December of 2019, the cinematic video 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.
