Preshow Ritual: See How Gojira Create "Healing Energy" Backstage Before Shows
Just like how athletes may have superstitions and warm-up routines that help them get "in the zone," so do musicians in order to perform onstage to their best of their abilities. Usually such practices are not made public, but during their appearance at Bonnaroo 2019, Gojira let Revolver peek behind the curtains to see how they prep for a show. Watch as frontman Joe Duplantier explains each member's individual rituals as well as the progressive metal group's collective ritual. "We want to create a healing energy, we want to spread love and happiness to people through metal," he says. In order to give that vibe and recycle negativity into something positive, "it requires presence from us." See how Gojira get into the right head space to take the stage and give their all.
