Gojira Announce 2016 North American Tour With Tesseract
On June 17, Gojira will drop one of 2016’s most anticipated albums with Magma. We’ve already heard the new song “Stranded” and Gojira fans worldwide eagerly await what’s next to come from the French metallers.
From May through August, Gojira will stomp their way through Europe and North America to play major festivals and a few side gigs. After a month off the road, Gojira will invade North America on Sept. 21 for the tour’s kickoff show in Silver Spring, Md. Gojira will continue to traverse North America, finishing up in New York City on Oct. 23.
Magma was largely influenced by the tragic death of Joe and Mario Duplantier’s mother, who passed away last year. "When you read Joe's lyrics, for me, I cry right away," Mario tells Rolling Stone. "They're very deep and to the point. No bulls--t. We recycle our sadness and depression in the music."
