Jackson® has teamed up with French metal act Gojira’s acclaimed guitarist, Christian Andreu, to create his all-new signature U.S.A. Rhoads. Andreu’s demanding playing requires tone and sustain that can shake the foundations of the earth to their very core, and this guitar uses a custom Charvel MFB humbucking bridge pickup for razor-sharp high-output tones with a hint of warmth.

Engineered for sterling playability, crossed with Jackson’s renowned style, the Christian Andreu U.S.A. Signature Rhoads cranks out mile-wide riffs and leads as fiery as its namesake. Available in Satin Black with a unique Gojira Dragon design on the body.

New York, NY:  Roadrunner Records announced today the addition of French metal behemoths Gojira to the label. The band is universally recognized as one of the most talented and extreme art-metal acts on the scene today. Gojira is one of those rare bands that comes along every couple of years and takes everything you know about metal, twists it, reimagines it and comes up with something wholly unique. It's doubtful you've heard anything like Gojira before. The band makes that much of an impact with its music and approach.

Gojira are comprised of vocalist/guitarist Joe Duplantier, who has a previous relationship with Roadrunner, having played bass on Cavalera Conspiracy's debut Inflikted, along with guitarist Christian Andreu, bassist Jean-Michel Labadie and drummer Mario Duplantier, who is also Joe's brother!

"We are so stoked to walk with the legendary Roadrunner," Joe said about the new partnership. "We discovered Sepultura, Machine Head, Death, Fear Factory and so many other great bands thanks to these guys. Roadrunner has been a great source of inspiration for us as metal fans. It's an honor to be part of this family today as a band. We feel we'll get the right support at the right moment in our career.  We cannot wait to release our new record and get back on the road."

The band's Roadrunner debut will be its fifth album overall. It was 2005's From Mars to Sirius and 2008's The Way of All Flesh which established Gojira as a metal force of nature and a key player in the scene. The band will record in New York City, also the label's headquarters, in November 2011, with a spring 2012 release date being eyed. Joe Duplantier will serve in a co-producer capacity along Josh Wilbur (Lamb of God).

“I’ve been a huge Gojira fan ever since their monumental From Mars to Sirius album and have been actively pursuing them ever since," Roadrunner Senior VP of A&R Monte Conner said. "I am thrilled to finally be welcoming them to the Roadrunner family. Gojira are one of the best bands in metal today, with a sound and style all their own.  Their live shows are unreal, from the level of playing, to the intensity, to the Godzilla like stomp that hits you in the chest."

Gojira have kept busy in between albums. They recently recorded the four-song Sea Shepherd EP, with all proceeds from the EP benefiting the Sea Shepherd charity. Sea Shepherd is a Washington-state based non-profit marine conservation organization which employs direct action tactics to protect sea life. One of the songs, "Blood And Salt," recently surfaced on a Metal Hammer UK sampler CD. Release details on that EP, which is loaded with A-list metal guests like Mastodon's Brent Hinds, Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe, Soulfly’s Max Cavalera and Strapping Young Lad's Devin Townsend to name a few, are yet to be determined.

In other Gojira news, the band will perform as part of Australia's Soundwave Festival, which is slated for February 2012.
