Gojira has shared “The Chant,” the final single to arrive before the release of the French metal band’s new album, “Fortitude,” out April 30, 2021, via Roadrunner Records. “The Chant” is available today on all streaming platforms with pre-orders for “Fortitude” available at www.gojira-music.com.
The band also has shared a teaser for an official music video for “The Chant,” which will arrive on album release day, April 30. Listen to the song and see the teaser below.
“The Chant” follows early album singles “Another World,” “Born for One Thing,” “Into The Storm” and “Amazonia,” the latter of which was launched alongside a fundraising initiative to benefit the indigenous owned NGO The Articulation of Indigenous Peoples of Brazil (APIB), which advocates for environmental and cultural rights of indigenous tribes in the Amazon.
Working with the digital platform Propeller, Gojira is curating a charitable campaign featuring an auction of one-of-a-kind items from the band and its friends, as well as a raffle where fans can donate to be entered for a chance to win a hand customized signature Joe Duplantier guitar and a hand-painted drum head by Gojira’s Mario Duplantier. Having already raised over $250,000 to date for APIB, new auction listings include a Slash autographed top hat and “Appetite” signature Les Paul guitar, a signed Fender Precision bass from Gojira’s Jean-Michel Labadie used to record the band’s album “From Mars to Sirius,” and more with bidding on the final round of auction items ending at 3 p.m. EST April 29.
