Our esteemed Jackson Bloodline colleagues in French death metal ensemble Gojira have a fairly insane North American/European tour schedule through early November 2009, including a slew of dates on the massive Metallica tour, which also features fellow Bloodline heroes Lamb of God.

Gojira’s boys from Bayonne—including Jackson-wielding enfants terribles Joe Duplantier and Christian Andreu—continue to lay waste to audiences at home and abroad in support of most recent album The Way of All Flesh. Tour dates (bold indicates Metallica supporting slot) are:
