Gojira has never played their 2004 track "Global Warming" live, so here's your chance to check it out in the closest setting to an actual show you've ever gotten before. Gojira played and filmed their performance of the song at their own Silver Cord Studio in April and have since posted the entire performance.
Despite their saying how difficult the song is, it sure as hell doesn't look that way.
A few weeks ago, we played Global Warming together for the first time since the recording of From Mars To Sirius (2004). We never played it live before, as it is a challenging one to play, and place in a set list. It’s emotionally heavy, and would almost “hurt” the rest of the songs in a way. We just really wanted to do this on camera for our fans. Global warming is a reality and a relevant topic, we feel it’s good to be reminded of one of the most important challenges of our time: How to grow as a species without being a parasite to our planet, the only home we have. “We will see our children growing” is a mantra for future generations, and in a figurative way we hope the children in all of us will grow, evolve, and take action for a more compassionate and meaningful world.
