Last week saw French experimental neck-kickers Gojira release Fortitude, their most ambitious and accessible album thus far. Now, the band’s drummer Mario Duplantier has added another notch to his belt by drummer for The Late Show with Seth Meyers.

Gojira posted a video of Mario drumming remotely from France, with Mario adding the caption, “My first night on Late Night Show with Seth Meyers was amazing so far!! Joining the show remotely from France to NYC. Thank you to my local team Anne Deguehegny Mako Workshop and Manutea Blais for helping make this happen!”
