GOJIRA have confirmed their appearance as an opener to METALLICA's only French show on Thursday the 14th of August in Arras (North of France). METALLICA have not played in France since their latest appearance at the Parc des Princes in 2004 and 25,000 people are expected. This will also be GOJIRA's only live date since their North American tour in November 2007.

The band is absolutely delighted to be sharing the stage with METALLICA as they expressed, " We're all big fans of the band and grew up as musicians by listening to their classic albums also, it was a major news for us to be added on the bill. We feel it's another achievement for us and we're truly honored."

The band is currently recording the follow up to the much acclaimed "From Mars to Sirius" album for a worldwide October release.

Yes I agree - Gojira is loud, that is a given, but their technical guitar skills are incredible.
Talk about music that actually brings images into your mind, this is the band. Gojira is a fitting name for this band. Even though the music is heavy and loud, it still has sense of awe. It is very moving.emotionally.
