Gojira‘s new single “Our Time Is Now” is now available online and can be found below. The song was featured on the newly released EA Sports video game ‘NHL 23‘.
When talking about the lyrical inspiration for the track, Joe Duplantier, the band’s vocalist/guitarist, offered the following:
“This song goes out to all the fighters out there sparking a light in a dark world. If you care about something meaningful to you and your community. If you are standing for a cause, if you show compassion and solidarity for the ones whose rights are taken away, if you’re in a war defending your inherent rights or fighting against deforestation, if you’re standing for animal rights, human rights, you are the lightning bolt, the spark that will shape our world. Your time is now! Our time is now!”
“Rest In Peace young Masha Amini. She was killed in Teheran for not wearing her hijab ‘properly’ by the ‘morality police’ and Rest In Peace all victims of brutalities during the protests that followed her death. We support the women of Iran in their fight, for taking a stand against oppression!”
