Gojira Give Tour Update

GOJIRA has posted a tour update at Prosthetic Records's website. The heavy-hitting French quartet is currently wrapping up its first North American tour, supporting Children of Bodom and Amon Amarth alongside Sanctity and has just been confirmed alongside Lamb of God, Trivium and Machine Head for another North American tour beginning in February and crossing the continent into April. GOJIRA is continuing to support its latest record, 'From Mars To Sirius,' which saw an August release in North American through Prosthetic Records, after initially being released in Europe through Listenable Records in September of 2005.

Here are some updates from the band:

"December 13th: Today we're in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We had a great time in California last week. Nice weather, palm trees, and of course meeting, for the first time, EJ and Bob from Prosthetic. We feel like we're alredy good friends. Nice guys, upright and passionate about what they do. Guys, it's a pleasure to work with you! Then onto Anaheim : Good show. Disney Land was the right place to meet Bob! The day after, San Diego was one of our best shows on this tour."

"December 9th: Los Angeles Wiltern Theater. Amazing venue! We realy look forward to play there again (in February). Then it was an incredibly long and beautiful drive to Denver, Colorado and yesterday Lawrence, Kansas with a very enthusiastic crowd. It's not always easy on the road. It's hard to sleep, sometimes we have to deal with little tensions or problems, but it's nothing compared to the fun we are having doing this tour."

"December 4th: Things are doing so good for us in the states so far...We already saw Philadelphia, Rochester, Detroit (my God), Milwaukee, Memphis (day off) and today: Dallas Tex-ass! Nobody's sick, we're having a lot of fun, we eat junk food, we get fat, we love the crowd every night. For the moment it's a warm welcome from American metalheads. In Detroit, the hotel was so nasty that a shower would have been dangerous. In Milwaukee, we were under ten feet of snow, the show in Detroit was amazing...Wild. The stage was ten feet high and from up there we had a beautiful view of a killer circle pit!"

"We just received, a few days ago, the routing for our next tour with LAMB OF GOD, TRIVIUM and MACHINE HEAD next February/March/April. We have no words to describe it..We are so excited to be touring the states like that! It's like a dream come true. Thanx to you all, thanx for your support!"
