Joe Duplantier and his band Gojira recently teamed up with Arte.TV for an epic 70-minute video of their private concert held at Studio 500.
The artfully crafted video captures the band and their fans in a movie-quality production full of clever angles that puts the viewer on stage with the band and in the moshing crowd. The fast-paced clips intensify the emotion and with so many up-close shots, it manages to make you feel like you are truly experiencing the performance in person.
During the set, Gojira played three new songs off brand new album Magma, including “Stranded,” “Silvera” and “Only Pain.”
Gojira took the stage at the Rock in Vienna festival in Austria last week, performing new songs “Silvera” and “Stranded” off upcoming June 17 album Magma.
A fan caught excellent footage of the electrifying performance and the enthusiastic crowd chanting along to the beginning of “Stranded.” There’s an energy that can be felt between the audience and the band, fueled by Joe Duplantier’s growling vocals and monstrous guitar riffs.
Gojira is on tour in Europe and North America through October. Dates here.
Charvel signature artist Joe Duplantier and his French metal act Gojira are getting the weekend off to a killer start, with the release of a new video for new single “Stranded.” The band also released the album cover art for Magma, dropping June 17.
Directed by Vincent Caldoni, the sepia video features the band performing live indoors, but also other strange imagery including a woman dancing wildly, smashing a pile of eggs and then painting the guys’ faces. Combined, the beautifully shot footage conveys a sense of feeling trapped and desperation.
