Gojira were planning to spend their late summer days touring with Lamb of God and Dethklok. In light of the tour's cancelation, the band has booked a spate of intimate gigs sprinkled along the East Coast, as well as few Midwestern gigs, including a spot on a date Knotfest, the new fest curated by their labelmates in Slipknot.
Gojira's Roadrunner Records debut L'Enfant Sauvage is out now.
The album has raked in near-perfect scores from critics, with SPIN celebrating its "guerilla warfare," and Outburn awarding it 10 out of 10 stars, calling "impossible to pigeonhole and harder to ignore, one of the year's best." Pitchfork lauded the band's technical sophistication, while Alternative Press hailed it as "a devastating and harmonious combination of the organic and mechanical." Decibel dubbed it "an all-balls, no baguettes affair."
