File this under: had to happen. Surrounding their West Coast dates opening for Metallica, as well as their appearance with Opeth at Red Rocks Amphitheater, France's Gojira have announced a huge, multipart North American tour featuring at various times Kyng or a Deafheaven/Code Orange double bill as support. They may not have won their Grammy bid, but Gojira seem thirsty for road dog domination following the relatively silent period that lead up to their last album, Magma.

All Gojira dates, including the previously announced Philly show that intersects with the Mastodon, Eagles of Death Metal, Devin Townsend Project and Russian Circles tour (!), are listed below.

Deafheaven are also touring with This Will Destroy You and Emma Ruth Rundle.
