Gojira at Komplex 457 Zurich

Event Dates: 
8 July, 2022 - 19:00 - 23:45

French metal titans Gojira are coming to the Komplex 457 in Zurich! The band started in 1996, and while their first albums were rooted in death metal, over the years they've added elements of groove and progressive metal. An incendiary live band, they've been embraced by the metal community as one of the best bands in the genre. Gojira are known for their spiritual and environment-themed lyrics and are frequent supporters of environmental causes.

Gojira released their seventh album "Fortitude" in April 2021. "Fortitude" is a further stepping stone in their ever-evolving sound, encompassing the heaviness they're known for as well as more melodic songs that won't scare your neighbours. You can buy the album here.

Vocalist and guitarist Joe Duplantier talked to The English Show in 2021 about the lack of touring during the pandemic, looking after his voice, and having to be a little crazy to do what they do. Listen to the interview again here.

Now they're finally back on tour and coming to Switzerland. Support comes from fantastic New Zealand metallers Alien Weaponry and Woking band Employed To Serve.

When: Friday, 8 July 2022, doors at 19:00, show starts at 20:00
