French kings Gojira in animated mood


Twice Grammy-nominated French metal outfit Gojira have shared a new standalone single entitled ‘Another World.’ Produced by the band’s own Joe Duplantier and mixed by Andy Wallace, the track is joined by an animated official video directed by Maxime Tiberhgien and Sylvain Favrel. The release marks the group’s first original music since the release of their Grammy-nominated album Magma in 2016.

Regarding the song, vocalist, guitarist, and producer Joe Duplantier commented, “It is with great excitement that we’re presenting our new track ‘Another World.’ 

Ferdinand Magellan once said: ‘It is with an iron will that we’ll embark on the most daring of all endeavours, to meet the shadowy future without fear and conquer the unknown.’

Is humanity doomed, or will we survive nature’s wrath? Take a glimpse into our shadowy future by watching our take on 1968’s Planet Of The Apes… Another World!”

Gojira’s North American tour supporting Deftones has been rescheduled for 2021.

Magma earned the band two GRAMMY nominations – ‘Best Metal Performance’ and ‘Best Rock Album.’ It took the #1 spot on Billboard’s ‘Hard Rock Albums’ chart, making Gojira the first French band ever to hold the #1 spot.

Magma also asserted itself as one of the most acclaimed 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.’
