Roadrunner Senior VP Monte Conner had this to say, “I’ve been a huge Gojira fan ever since their monumental From Mars to Sirius album and have been actively pursuing them ever since.” Conner also stated, “I am thrilled to finally be welcoming them to the Roadrunner family. Gojira are one of the best bands in metal today, with a sound and style all their own. Their live shows are unreal, from the level of playing, to the intensity, to the Godzilla like stomp that hits you in the chest.”

Guitarist Joe Duplantier made this statement about their new venture, “We are so stoked to walk with the legendary Roadrunner. We discovered Sepultura, Machine Head, Death, Fear Factory and so many other great bands thanks to these guys. Roadrunner has been a great source of inspiration for us as metal fans. It’s an honor to be part of this family today as a band. We feel we’ll get the right support at the right moment in our career. We cannot wait to release our new record and get back on the road.”

It sounds as if both parties are excited about this deal. UTG will surely keep everyone updated as news surfaces about this group.
