Several GOJIRA roadies took to the stage last night (Wednesday, April 10) at Bataclan in Paris, France to perform the band’s song “Vacuity” under the moniker GOJIRO. Fan-filmed video footage of their appearance can be seen below. Also available is footage of GOJIRA drummer Mario Duplantier crowdsurfing — literally — after the concert.
GOJIRA and the DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT recently completed a North American tour.
The trek, which was announced during Full Metal Jackie‘s nationally syndicated radio show, also included support from THE ATLAS MOTH.
GOJIRA‘s fifth album, “L’Enfant Sauvage”, sold almost 11,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 34 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band’s previous CD, “The Way Of All Flesh”, opened with 4,200 units back in 2008 to land at No. 138.
“L’Enfant Sauvage” entered the official chart in France at position No. 7 (No. 17 on the digital chart).
“L’Enfant Sauvage” (which translates to “The Wild Child”) features 11 tracks of mind-bending, thunderous metal. The CD was recorded at Spin Recording Studios in Long Island City, New York with co-producer Josh Wilbur (LAMB OF GOD).
