Gojira - Global Warming [Live at the Silver Cord Studio May 2018]

on June 25, 2018 - 12:20pm

 

A few weeks ago, we played Global Warming together for the first time since the recording of From Mars To Sirius (2004). We never played it live before, as it is a challenging one to play, and place in a set list. It’s emotionally heavy, and would almost “hurt” the rest of the songs in a way. We just really wanted to do this on camera for our fans. Global warming is a reality and a relevant topic, we feel it’s good to be reminded of one of the most important challenges of our time: How to grow as a species without being a parasite to our planet, the only home we have.

Stop the elephant slaughter!

on June 20, 2018 - 4:04am

 

"Elephants are facing extinction and this is no time to strip them of protection. Trophy hunting drives the slaughter of elephants, increases demand for their body parts, and projects a double standard that makes it harder to tackle ivory poaching."

 

Every 15 minutes an elephant is brutally slaughtered for its tusks, and at this rate they will be gone forever in just a few years. Momentum is growing for a complete global ban on ivory — but the European Commission has just come out against it!

The elephant crisis is heartbreaking.

Bloodstock Festival 2016 - Full Set Video

on March 23, 2017 - 3:11pm

Filmed on the Saturday of last year's heavy metal weekender, Gojira's set went down as one of the best of the three-day festival.
Speaking to Scuzz TV before taking to the stage, frontman Joe Duplantier said that performing live "resonates instantly with the crowd. There's something really magical about it, it’s awesome.”
The Bloodstock performance came shortly after the release of Gojira's album Magma, which was named as Metal Hammer's album of the year in 2016.
