GOJIRA DEBUT NEW VIDEO FOR ‘THE SHOOTING STAR’

Roadrunner Records’ group Gojira have debuted their official music video for ‘The Shooting Star.’ Taken from their acclaimed chart topping new album MAGMA, ‘The Shooting Star’ video is streaming now on Gojira’s official YouTube channel.

This summer Gojira returned with their widely acclaimed new LP MAGMA to take the #1 spot on Billboard’s ‘Hard Rock Albums’ chart making them the first French band to hold the #1 spot on the chart in its nine year existence.  The release of MAGMA marked the highest chart debuts of Gojira’s career across the world.

Later this month Gojira embark on a massive North American headline tour which continues through late October. Following that run, the band jet across the ocean for European dates with Alter Bridge, Volbeat, and Like A Storm in November/December. Tickets are on sale now for the following UK shows:

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
