Copenhagen, Denmark-based metal/hardcore act PILGRIMZ has been confirmed as the support band for French progressive metallers GOJIRA on their upcoming tour of the U.K. and Ireland.
Comment PILGRIMZ vocalist Max Vegas: "No need to say that the expression of GOJIRA is unique and that the band is one of Europe's leading metal bands. However, I think their fans will like us a lot. Even though our metal is more rock 'n' roll-inspired, it's still our own dirty unique expression and we can't wait to destroy the U.K.!"
