“French prog-metal giants tap grief to make a game-changing album.” – Rolling Stone

“…if ever there was a moment that signaled Gojira’s status as leaders in the continuing evolution of the genre, it’s now.” – SPIN

“The Duplantiers had to make this album for themselves. We are the fortunate witnesses.” – Consequence of Sound

“Magma pulls off the all-too-rare trifecta of being heavy, complex, and catchy, while most of today’s best metal bands are happy to pull off only two of those three things (if that).” – Stereogum

“With its sixth LP, Gojira defends its status as one of metal’s most elite bands.” – A.V. Club

 

Gojira are currently out on the road wrapping up a run of North American dates on Metallica’s WorldWired Tour which will continue through August 16th (see attached itinerary). The west coast trek also includes a string of Gojira headline dates with Pallbearer that run through August 12th. This fall, Gojira will make an array of U.S. festival appearances with performances set for Louder Than Life (9/30), Rock Allegiance (10/7), Houston Open Air (10/14), Aftershock (10/21) and more. The upcoming fall dates will also include a very special one night only performance with Converge at Brooklyn, NY’s recently opened Brooklyn Steel on September 28th. See Gojira’s official video for The Cell, HERE.



Last year Gojira’s MAGMA staked its claim amongst the best 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.” MAGMA also earned Gojira their first ever Grammy nominations for ‘Best Metal Performance’ and ‘Best Rock Album.’ Gojira’s crushing track “Silvera” received a nomination for ‘Best Metal Performance,’ while their MAGMA was nominated for ‘Best Rock Album’ at the awards.

Gojira’s MAGMA took the #1 spot on Billboard’s ‘Hard Rock Albums’ chart upon debut, making Gojira 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 landing them at #4 on Billboard’s ‘Top Rock Albums’ chart, #6 on Billboard’s ‘Tastemaker Albums’ chart and Top 25 on the ‘Billboard 200.’ Furthermore, Gojira earned career high chart positions around the globe including Top 10’s in France, Canada, Switzerland, Austria, Finland, and Norway with Top 15 debuts in Australia and Germany. MAGMA is available at all DSPs and HERE in a variety of exclusive bundles.
