Gojira Share ‘Another World,’ First New Song in Four Years

French metal band also drop Planet of the Apes-inspired video for standalone single

Gojira have shared their new animated video for the standalone single “Another World,” the French metal band’s first new music in four years.

“It is with great excitement that we’re presenting our new track ‘Another World,’” Gojira’s Joe Duplantier said of the song in a statement. “Ferdinand Magellan once said: ‘It is with an iron will that we’ll embark on the most daring of all endeavors, to meet the shadowy future without fear and conquer the unknown.’  Is humanity doomed, or will we survive nature’s wrath? Take a glimpse into our shadowy future by watching our take on 1968’s Planet of the Apes… ‘Another World’!”

The animated video sees the Gojira members portraying scientists cooped up in a lab within a virus-stricken world. They brainstorm several methods of escaping this world — including constructing a wormhole — before building a spaceship and rocketing out of here. In the end, like in Planet of the Apes, they wind up back on Earth millenniums in the future.

The metal act last released their sixth album Magma in 2016. In addition to “Another World,” Gojira also detailed their rescheduled 2021 U.S. tour dates opening for Deftones.
