Biography

Formed in Ondres, France in
1996 by brothers Joe and Mario Duplantier, Christian Andreu and Alexandre
Cornillon, the heavy metal rock group Gojira take their name from the Roman/Japanese
word for Godzilla. Singer/guitarist Joe and drummer Mario with Andreu on lead
guitar and Jean-Michelle Labadie on bass, had started out as Godzilla but had
to change it for copyright reasons; Labadie succeeded Cornillon on bass in 1998
and they made their debut under the current name with Terra Incognita in
2001. They toured in support of other bands until 2009 when they had their
first headline outing across North America. Their 2008 album The Way of All
Flesh
made it to Number 138 on the Billboard 200 but L'Enfant Sauvage
broke through to Number 34 on the chart in 2012. More importantly it reached Number 13 on the Top Rock Chart and Number 6 on the Hard Rock Chart. Les
Enfants Sauvages
came out in 2014 featuring a live CD, DVD and photo book.
In 2016 their album Magma topped the Hard Rock Chart, reached Number 4
on the Top Rock Albums Chart and placed at Number 24 on the Billboard 200. The
release was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rock Album and the single “Silvera
garnered a nod for Best Metal Performance.
The band was quiet for a few
years before retuning with a new single, “Another World”, in 2020. The
album Fortitude followed in 2021, as did the charity single “Amazonia”.
