Gojira have announced details of a U.S. headline tour with special guests Torche and Code Orange which is set to get underway October 2nd. Last year Gojira’s MAGMA staked its claim amongst the best 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,” Consequence of Sound’s “Top 50 Albums of 2016” / “Top 10 Metal Albums of 2016” lists, and Pop Matters’ “Best Metal of 2016” recap. Additionally, “Stranded,” the lead single off of MAGMA, was named one of Stereogum’s “100 Favorite Songs Of 2016.” MAGMA also earned Gojira their first ever Grammy nominations for ‘Best Metal Performance’ and ‘Best Rock Album.’ Gojira’s crushing track “Silvera” received a nomination for ‘Best Metal Performance,’ while their MAGMA was nominated for ‘Best Rock Album’ at the awards.
Gojira’s MAGMA took the #1 spot on Billboard’s ‘Hard Rock Albums’ chart upon debut, making Gojira the first French band to hold the #1 spot on the chart in its nine-year existence. The release of MAGMA marked the highest chart debuts of Gojira’s career landing them at #4 on Billboard’s ‘Top Rock Albums’ chart, #6 on Billboard’s ‘Tastemaker Albums’ chart and Top 25 on the ‘Billboard 200.’ Furthermore, Gojira earned career high chart positions around the globe including Top 10’s in France, Canada, Switzerland, Austria, Finland, and Norway with Top 15 debuts in Australia and Germany.
