And it is official! There have been hints for quite a while that Gojira might be playing some new shows, what with the fallout of the cancellation of their tour stint with Dethklok and Lamb of God hindering their initial efforts to tour. There have also been comments by the band members themselves that they might consider playing a show in New York this summer. Earlier today, we also gave you an update on Slipknot’s Knotfest which Gojira will be a part of.
And finally, a few new tour dates throughout the Midwest and along the East Coast have officially been announced by Roadrunner.
So far, eight dates have been announced, with the first one taking place in New York City. It is unclear whether the eight shows, which include the Knotfest show in Minnesota, will be everything there is or if there will be even more shows. A fan can hope, right?
