Metal bands Mastodon and Gojira are teaming up for a lengthy spring and summer tour

Atlanta metal band Mastodon are joining up with French heavy metal group greats Gojira for a lengthy 2023 North American tour. The trek, called The Mega-Monsters Tour, will feature special guests Lorna Shore on all dates and take the bands through arenas and amphitheaters during the spring and summer months.

Fan ticket pre-sales are available starting Wednesday (Jan. 18) at 10 a.m. local time via Mastodon, Gojira, Blabbermouth.net and Spotify fans first. Then, general on-sale starts Jan. 20 at 10 a.m. local time. For more information, go here.

The tour sets off at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Portland, Oregon, on April 18, and the first leg of the trek wraps up at Santander Arena in Reading, Pennsylvania, on May 11. Then, the tour resumes with a second leg from Aug. 9 through Sept. 2.

Mastodon are touring in support of their ninth studio album, “Hushed and Grim.” Gojira, on the other hand, are out to tour behind their seventh full-length album, “Fortitude,” which has picked up a Grammy Award nomination in the category of “Best Metal Performance” for “Amazonia.” Mastodon and Gojira toured North America together back in 2014, so this is a reunion of sorts. A press release bills the tour as “yet another major milestone in their respective careers.”
