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’ and its music video are streaming now on Gojira’s official YouTube channel. The mind-bending video was directed and animated by Markus Hofko (www.bowbowbow.co).
This past 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 landing them at #4 on Billboard’s ‘Top Rock Albums’ chart, #6 on Billboard’s ‘Tastemaker Albums’ chart and Top 25 on the ‘Billboard 200.’ Furthermore, Gojira earned career high chart positions around the globe including Top 10’s in France, Canada, Switzerland, Austria, Finland, and Norway with Top 15 debuts in Australia and Germany.
Later this month Gojira will embark on a massive North American headline tour. The nationwide trek will see Gojira joined by Tesseract and is set to kick-off September 21st at Silver Spring, Maryland’s The Fillmore. From there Gojira will traverse North America through October where the tour will eventually wrap up on October 23rd at New York City’s Terminal 5 (tour itinerary below). Tickets and VIP packages for all dates are currently on sale. Furthermore, Gojira have announced a very special headline date at Paris, France’s Olympia set for April 1st.

Touted as one of the “Most Anticipated” albums of 2016 by Rolling Stone, Consequence of Sound and Decibel, MAGMA is currently the #1 album at Metal radio topping CMJ’s ‘Loud Rock’ chart, while earning the eighth highest Metacritic score of all releases thus far in 2016. MAGMA was also 9th most streamed album in the U.S. on Spotify upon its release on June 17th. MAGMA is available at all DSPs and at www.Gojira-Music.com in a variety of exclusive bundles.
Recorded at the band’s own Silver Cord Studio in Ridgewood, Queens, MAGMA is produced, mixed and engineered by Gojira.

MAGMA has been heralded by two stunning visuals pieces for albumtracks “Silvera” and “Stranded.” “Silvera” is accompanied by a Drew Cox directed music video shot in New York City, which has received over 2.7 Million views on Gojira’s official YouTube channel while the official video for “Stranded,” directed by Vincent Caldoni, has already garnered 3.4 Million views and charted in the Top 25 on Spotify’s US Viral 50 chart.
