BAND TO HIT THE ROAD WITH THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT + THE ATLAS MOTH
(New York, NY): Metal behemoths Gojira will embark on their first headline tour of the U.S. this winter, with The Devin Townsend Project and The Atlas Moth serving as support. The band’s Roadrunner debut L’Enfant Sauvage was released in June of this year, to much critical acclaim.
The tour kicks off on January 14 in Minneapolis and runs through February 16, wrapping up in Philadelphia. It will wind through the country and Canada, hitting major markets along the way.
The VIP pre-sale will begin Tuesday, October 23 at 3PM local time, with public onsales to follow on Friday, October 26.
Fans who pre-order tickets before December 1 will be rewarded for their early support. They will receive an instant download of two exclusive live tracks (“Love” and “Toxic Garbage”) from the band’s special NYC show at Webster Hall, which was recorded in August of 2012, along with a download of a full show from the band’s current European tour. The full show will be provided via email at a later date.
Therefore, going to see Gojira in the live realm –where they are known to be absolutely devastating and able to shake the foundation of the venues in which they play- is a constantly renewable experience.
