Gojira Signs North American Deal with Prosthetic Records

Prosthetic Records has enetered into an exclusive licensing agreement with France's Listenable Records to release the new album from French metal titans GOJIRA throughout North America. The band's latest opus, From Mars To Sirius, will be released through Prosthetic on Aug. 22. The record has already been showered with high words of praise in North America from Alternative Press, Metal Maniacs, Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles, Decibel, and Blabbermouth.net, despite initially being available only on import through Listenable.

From Mars To Sirius will be the band's first album with a formal North American release, all while the band has logged 300+ live shows in France and Europe and sold over 8,000 copies of its last album throughout Europe. Now with Prosthetic's backing, GOJIRA will bring its futuristicly heavy sound across the Atlantic. The band is currently playing live dates and festivals throughout Europe for much of the summer.

That is good news. Gojira has some of the heaviest riffs around, and the overall quality of their albums (3 they've made that I've heard, including "The Link" and "Terra Cognita") is outstanding.
