Gojira Announce Fall U.S. Headline Dates with Torche and Code Orange

0

If you haven’t seen Gojira perform in person yet, you’re missing out on the best live band in metal. Period.

If you’ve seen them live at least ten times over as many years, as I have, then you know that all too well and you never miss a show.

Either way: you’d be a complete fool to skip the headline dates Gojira just announced for this coming fall. It’ll run through the month of October in mostly major markets, but even if you live a long drive away from any of these shows, it’s worth the trip.

Torche and Code Orange will sweeten the deal as opening acts, two excellent choices by the Gojira crew, each of whom would be worth seeing on their own. This is a fantastic lineup. I hope they have screen printed gig posters available for sale.

Gojira’s dates tack onto their previously announced run with Pallbearer, and a couple of remaining gigs with Metallica and Avenged Sevenfold. Here’s everything all at once, with the newly added shows in bold:
