Gojira have released a new track called ‘Our Time Is Now’. Featured as part of EA Sports’ NHL 23 soundtrack, it marks the French prog-metal outfit’s first new music since the release of their album Fortitude last year. Listen to it below.
“This song goes out to all the fighters out there sparking a light in a dark world,” the band’s Joe Duplantier said in a statement. “Show that you are part of a change! 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!”
Duplantier added: “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!”
