Gojira new single and video out
GOJIRA SHARE STANDALONE SINGLE "ANOTHER WORLD" ANIMATED OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO STREAMING NOW
2x Grammy® nominated band Gojira have shared a new standalone single entitled "Another World." Produced by the band’s own Joe Duplantier and mixed by Andy Wallace, the new track is available today on all streaming platforms and is joined by an animated official music video directed by Maxime Tiberhgien and Sylvain Favre, which is streaming now on Gojira’s YouTube channel. The release marks the group’s first original music since the release of their Grammy® nominated LP MAGMA in 2016.
Regarding the song, vocalist, guitarist, and producer Joe Duplantier commented, "It is with great excitement that we’re presenting our new track ‘Another World.‘ Ferdinand Magellan once said: ‘It is with an iron will that we’ll embark on the most daring of all endeavors, to meet the shadowy future without fear and conquer the unknown.’ Is humanity doomed, or will we survive nature’s wrath? Take a glimpse into our shadowy future by watching our take on 1968’s Planet Of The Apes… Another World!"
Additionally, Gojira‘s much-anticipated tour supporting Deftones has been rescheduled for 2021. Check out the dates below and for more information visit www.gojira-music.com.
Gojira’s 2016 LP MAGMA, earned the band two GRAMMY nominations – ‘Best Metal Performance’ and ‘Best Rock Album.’ Upon release, MAGMA took the #1 spot on Billboard‘s ‘Hard Rock Albums’ chart, making Gojira the first French band ever to hold the #1 spot on the chart. MAGMA also asserted itself as one of the most acclaimed albums of 2016, earning Metal Hammer‘s coveted "Album of the Year" title while also landing on Rolling Stone‘s "Top 20 Metal Albums of 2016," Consequence of Sound‘s "Top 50 Albums of 2016" / "Top 10 Metal Albums of 2016" lists, and Pop Matters‘ "Best Metal of 2016" recap. Additionally, "Stranded," the lead single off of MAGMA, was named one of Stereogum‘s "100 Favorite Songs Of 2016."
Gojira treat heavy music as a living and breathing entity, morphing, transforming, and changing in each iteration. After 2016’s MAGMA crashed the Top 25 of the Billboard Top 200, the history-making French band garnered a pair of 2017 Grammy® nominations, including "Best Rock Album" and "Best Metal Performance" for "Silvera." Revolver cited its 2012 predecessor L’Enfant Sauvage as #2 among the "25 Best Albums of the 2010s." Meanwhile, Rolling Stone named their 2005 breakthrough From Mars To Sirius one of "The 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time." Handpicked to open for Metallica by none other than frontman James Hetfield, they have toured with Slayer, Slipknot, and more in addition to headlining tours around the world. The group’s forthcoming seventh full-length album will undoubtedly see them push the envelope as they change heavy music once again.
