Posted on February 3rd, 2017 by Chrissy Mauck

French metallers Gojira recently appeared on Quotidien, the most viewed television show in France.

While we couldn’t make heads or tails of the conversation leading into the performance, we sure did enjoy watching the band forcefully power through “Stranded” and “The Shooting Star.”

Check out both clips below, featuring singer/guitarist Joe Duplantier on his signature Charvel models.

Posted on June 28th, 2016 by Morgan Brunner

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 Performs New Songs at Rock In Vienna

Posted on June 13th, 2016 by Morgan Brunner

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.

Start Your Weekend with the New Gojira Single, ‘Stranded’

Posted on April 22nd, 2016 by Chrissy Mauck


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.

Watch the video and see the new album cover below.
