Gojira Debut New Video For "The Shooting Star"

This summer Gojira returned with their widely acclaimed new LP MAGMA to take the #1 spot on Billboard’s ‘Hard Rock Albums’ chart making them the first French band to hold the #1 spot on the chart in its nine year existence.  The release of MAGMA marked the highest chart debuts of Gojira’s career across the world. Later this month Gojira embark on a massive North American headline tour which continues through late October. Following that run, the band jet across the ocean for European dates with Alter Bridge, Volbeat, and Like A Storm in November/December. Tickets are on sale now for the following UK shows: 

Wed 23rd Nov – MANCHESTER Arena
Thu 24th Nov – LONDON O2 Arena
Sat 26th Nov – NOTTINGHAM Capital FM Arena
Sun 27th Nov – BIRMINGHAM Genting Arena
Mon 28th Nov – CARDIFF Motorpoint Arena
Thu 1st Dec – GLASGOW Hydro
Fri 2nd Dec – LEEDS First Direct Arena

MAGMA has been heralded by two stunning visuals pieces for album tracks “Silvera” and “Stranded.” “Silvera” is accompanied by a Drew Cox directed music video shot in New York City, which has received over 1.5 Million views on Gojira’s official YouTube channel while the official video for “Stranded,” directed by Vincent Caldoni, has already garnered 2.1 Million views and charted in the Top 25 on Spotify’s US Viral 50 chart.
Magma causes volcanic eruptions. Lying beneath the ground’s surface, this molten material engages the earth to unleash its own lifeblood.
Gojira incite a similar release on their sixth full-length album and second for Roadrunner Records, Magma. Fueled by unbridled emotion, the ten tracks confront the fragility of life, the aftershocks of loss, and what lies beyond this realm. Musically, the French quartet—brothers Joe Duplantier [vocals, guitar] and Mario Duplantier [drums], Christian Andreu [guitar], and Jean-Michel Labadie [bass]—gracefully swings between quaking and quivering guitars, mind-bending percussion, chillingly elegant melodies, and cosmic atmospherics. The band has always dealt in extremes, uncovering light in darkness and finding beauty in heaviness. Magma continues that tradition, while expanding the sonic palette.
