Gojira share new single Amazonia, launch fundraising initiative
The French metal titans have also just launched a brilliant new fundraising initiative to accompany the song, raising money to help The Articulation Of Indigenous Peoples Of Brazil (APIB). “This is a call for unity,” says frontman Joe Duplantier. “The music community can be powerful when united towards something meaningful like this! So many friends, great artists, bands have joined the movement without hesitation by donating instruments. This is a collective effort from so many people around us!”
He adds: “We don’t want to just release a song called Amazonia – we want to do something on top of that. We feel a responsibility as artists to offer a way for people to take action.”
Fortitude is due out on April 30 via Roadrunner Records. Watch the video for Amazonia below:
