French metal band Gojira have released an official video for their track “Low Lands”, which comes from their new album Magma (review). The video, which was directed by Alain Duplantier, is a beautiful clip, full of gothic visuals and some symbolically personal imagery for the Duplantier brothers, Joe and Mario, who lost their mother last summer.
Vocalist/guitarist Joe Duplantier explains the video:
We are releasing a new video for the song Low Lands. It is an intimate and poetic piece directed by our dear cousin and friend Alain Duplantier. One of the “characters” featured in this film is “Gayeres”, the family house where Mario and I grew up. We jammed to our first songs, started Gojira, and recorded most of our albums there. Our sister Gabrielle also contributed to the making of this video. We want to thank all the wonderful people who worked hard to make this happen and all our fans for supporting us with so much passion and respect. We hope you’ll enjoy the trip as much as we do.
You can pick up Magma via Amazon.
