 News of the tour follows the recent release of Gojira’s acclaimed new album FORTITUDE, which is available now on all streaming platforms. The powerful collection is highlighted by the singles “Another World,” “Born For One Thing,” “Into The Storm,” “Amazonia,” and most recently “The Chant,” a slow-burning track featuring some of Gojira’s most melodic material to date. The official music video for “The Chant” was written / conceived by the band’s own Joe Duplantier and directed by Russell Brownley. Filmed on location in India’s West Bengal region in December 2019, the cinematic video examines the plight of refugee children from Tibet who fled their homeland in an attempt to preserve their culture following China’s invasion of the country in 1949. 

Furthermore, Gojira recently concluded a month-long fundraising initiative in support of the indigenous owned NGO The Articulation of Indigenous Peoples of Brazil (APIB) who advocate for environmental and cultural rights of indigenous tribes in the Amazon. Working with the social good-focused digital platform Propeller, the charitable campaign raised over $300K through an auction and raffle of one-of-a-kind items from the band and their friends in Metallica, Tool, Slipknot, Slayer, Slash and more. All proceeds are being donated to APIB to support their work aiding the indigenous tribes of the Amazon who have suffered immensely – victims of deforestation, land loss, forced labor, violence, and harassment. 

Recorded and Produced by Joe Duplantier at Silver Cord Studio – Gojira’s Ridgewood, New York headquarters – and mixed by Andy Wallace (Nirvana, Rage Against The Machine), FORTITUDE is Gojira’s first album in five years and the follow-up to 2016’s Grammy® nominated LP MAGMA. A collection of songs urging humanity to imagine a new world—and then make it happen, FORTITUDE has been earning widespread critical praise around the world, including The Guardian, Kerrang!, Metal Hammer, Clash, Upset, Prog, Rock Sound, NME, Classic Rock, Total Guitar, and more just in the UK, as well as clinching the band their highest chart positions to date, across the globe.
