Gojira have launched their new single “Our Time Is Now” across leading digital service providers. That song is also featured on the soundtrack to the newly release EA Sports video game, ‘NHL 23‘. The GRAMMY-nominated outfit are in good company on that soundtrack, appearing alongside Korn, Ghost, Turnstile and many more.
As for the lyrical inspiration for the track, the band’s vocalist/guitarist Joe Duplantier offered:
“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!”
