Gojira Announce 2017 U.S. Tour With Torche + Code Orange

Now this is a tour! French destroyers Gojira have just unveiled a new batch of U.S. tour dates with support from Torche and Code Orange.

Gojira are still riding high off the massive success of 2016’s Magma. The record made many Best Metal Albums of 2016 lists and brought more eyes to Gojira than ever before, leading Metallica to take them on the road for the thrash legends’ gigantic Worldwired tour. After wrapping up those Metallica dates, Gojira will play a handful of festival shows and a special Brooklyn gig with Converge before embarking on their headline tour.

Gojira’s dates with Torche and Code Orange will begin Oct. 2 in Cleveland, Ohio and finish up in San Diego, Calif. on Oct. 19. The French metallers will finish their U.S. touring plans with a standalone Aftershock Festival gig on Oct. 21.

Though Magma has been viewed as a success, frontman Joe Duplantier admitted in a recent chat his trepidation about bringing the songs into their set. “At first there was a part of me was a bit concerned, ‘What if our fans were going to be disappointed, you know, because they want that crazy technical energy in your face kind of thing?’ The thing is if they are disappointed it doesn’t matter,” the singer recently told Full Metal Jackie. “The only thing we have to do is be true to ourselves. We were a little tense when it came out and a few comments were like, ‘Ugh, oh my God,’ but then how something is really taking shape you know we are feeling more and more comfortable with the new songs enough to care to sing onstage and I go for it and it’s great. It’s really great, it’s a journey.”
