Grammy nominee – Gojira – is visiting Stockholm! Fans of rock, this is something just for you! Come and see Gojira´s live performance in Stockholm, you won´t regret it!
Gojira was Grammy nominated in 2016 for the album “Magma” in the category “Best Rock Album” and received another Grammy nomination the same year in the category “Best Metal Performance” for the single “Silvera”. Now the band is finally back with the sequel and seventh album “Fortitude” which has been hailed as one of the band’s best. And on July 21, Gojira comes to Sweden and Annexet in Stockholm!
Support: Alien Weaponry and Employed To Serve
This French metal monster formed in the south of France in 1996, then under the name Godzilla but changed to Gojira in 2001. With seven albums under their belt, James Hetfield, Slash, Deftones and Lamb of God join their fanbase. They have played acclaimed shows at major festivals such as Download Festival, Rock on the Range and Slipknot’s KNOTFEST, as well as touring with the likes of Metallica, Slayer and Mastodon.
The band’s seventh album “Fortitude” has been critically acclaimed and interspersed with top ratings, the album is described in part as follows:
“…cements their place as one of metal’s most skilled and uncompromising bands.” – Kerrang!
“easily the best album they’ve made to date.” – Louder Sound
“It’s all the rage of death metal mixed with the conscience of punk rock and the musicality of progressive rock, and it’s never boring” – Rolling Stone
It’s an album that’s equal parts energetic and vibrant as it is raising important issues all while Gojira’s joy in creating the music is palpable. Singer (and one brother) Joe Duplantier says:
“With this album, we wanted to come back with more joy, more power, and more positivity about life in general. We’re so lucky to do what we love; it’s not like we were depressed or anything, but we had something in our system to express-Magma-and we felt like it was time for something else-something that is all about strength.”
And a strong record it is, in many ways. Fortitude has taken both fans and critics by storm and now it’s finally time for Joe Duplantier, Mario Duplantier, Christian Andreu and Jean-Michel Labadie to take a stage in Sweden again! On July 21 we’ll see the mighty Gojira at Annexet in Stockholm, with Alien Weaponry and Employed To Serve as support – a night no one should miss!
