Gojira release video for The Shooting Star

Watch new video for Gojira track The Shooting Star – taken from latest album Magma

Gojira have released a video for their track The Shooting Star.

It's the opening song on the French metal outfit's sixth album Magma, which was released earlier this year, and the video was directed and animated by Markus Hofko.

Gojira previously made The Shooting Star available to stream.

Speaking to Metal Hammer at this summer's Bloodstock festival, Gojira frontman Joe Duplantier said the band had considered releasing an EP of material that was recorded for Magma but didn't make it on to the record.

He said: "We wrote a lot of songs for Magma that didn't make it on to the record so we have that material still spinning in our heads. We did consider putting some of it out on an EP but we will see what happens.

"We talk about new material often because we don't want to wait too long before we put out the next record. We want to keep going with new songs and be progressive.

"We definitely feel very inspired. When I listen to Magma I hear things and get little ideas that could lead to other songs."

In July, Metal Hammer fans voted Magma their favourite album of 2016 so far. Gojira have a string of tour dates still to come this year, including a European run with Alter Bridge and Volbeat.
