Gojira guitarist Christian Andreu will not play the remainder of the band's current North America tour so that he can return home to be with his newborn child.

In a social media statement yesterday (May 17), the band announced the temporary recruitment of Aldrick Guadagnino of fellow French metallers Klone, who will handle six-string duties for the trek's remaining dates.
