Gojira UK tour dates
A full set of tour dates for the mighty Gojira, the band behind probably the finest rock albums (extreme division) of the year.
While Gojira are an uncompromising bunch, their music is far from as inhospitable as it might seem on first listen to those uninitiated in the ways of the extreme end of the rock spectrum.
L’Enfant Sauvage, the album they released on Roadrunner records earlier this year, is an intelligent and articulate work, the music displaying a sophistication that borders on progressive rock while not losing its power or impact.
They're at the top of their game at the moment and the chance to see them live is not to be passed lightly.
Support on the tour comes from fellow French rock acts Klone and Trepalium, about whom I'll no doubt have more later.
The tour dates are:
Nov 05 NORTHUMBRIA UNIVERSITY Newcastle
Nov 06 GARAGE Glasgow
Nov 07 ACADEMY 2 Manchester
Nov 08 GREAT HALL 2 Cardiff
Nov 10 RESCUE ROOMS Nottingham
Nov 11 KOKO London
Nov 12 SLADE ROOMS Wolverhampton
Nov 14 LEMON GROVE Exeter
Nov 15 MO CLUB Southampton
Nov 16 ACADEMY Oxford
The UK dates are followed by shows in France, and a December gig at the Indian Metal Festival in Bangalore, India
