Gojira had been planning to spend the second half of summer 2012 touring North America with Lamb of God and Dethklok. Unfortunately, Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe's incarceration in the Czech Republic forced the cancellation of that tour. But the band has booked a string of intimate gigs along the East Coast and in the Midwest, including a slot on the second day of Knotfest, the two-day, two-state event curated by their labelmates, Slipknot.


Confirmed dates are as follows:
Aug. 9 New York, NY – Santos Party House
Aug. 11 Toronto, ONT – Heavy TO festival
Aug. 12 Montreal, QC – Heavy MTL festival
Aug. 13 Worcester, MA – Palladium (Upstairs)
Aug. 15 Pontiac, MI – The Pike Room
Aug. 16 Chicago, IL – Bottom Lounge
Aug. 18 Minneapolis, MN – Knotfest
Aug. 19 Milwaukee, WI – Rave Bar
Aug. 20 Cleveland, OH – Peabodys
