Meanwhile, the band are also set to perform at Slipknot’s Knotfest Iowa in September. Faith No More, Megadeth and Lamb Of God will also play the one-day event in Indianola, IA.
In a review of Gojira’s latest album, NME wrote: “Positioning themselves somewhere between Bring Me The Horizon’s future-metal and the brute force of the genre’s legends, Gojira might be the perfect metal band for right now.”
