Gojira Is Coming to Destroy San Antonio

French metal group Gojira will be making a stop in San Antonio

on their U.S. tour with Torche and Code Orange on Sunday, Oct. 15.


I didn’t actually know about Gojira until they showed up in my Meshuggah Radio Spotify playlist back in 2013. And like many a grumpy old metal listener, I had been so disappointed with newer metal bands that either sounded too much like the post-hardcore boys Underoath or just tried to be super extreme for extreme sake — but just ending up sounding sloppy (we get it, your drummer knows how to blast beat). 


Hearing their track “L’Enfant Sauvage,” was a breath of fresh air. The song was progressive, groovy as fuck and technical enough to stay interesting, making me an instant fan. I wasn't the only one. Last year, Gojira received a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Album of the Year for their latest album Magma and a nomination for Best Metal Performance for their track "Silvera."

Combining several elements of metal for a sound that's garnering international attention, Gojira is easily becoming one of the most sought after bands to see within the genre, and tbh, we're pretty stoked for this show.

Sunday, October 15, $35, 6:30pm, Alamo City Music Hall, 1305 E Houston St. Ticket's can be purchased here
