Gojira sent Chvrches merch following spat with Jamey Jasta
You may recall that when Deftones announced the line-up for the 2019 installment of their "Dia de los Deftones" festival, Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta took to Twitter to bitch about Chvrches' placement above Gojira on the bill. As Jasta and Chvrches singer Lauren Mayberry had a brief disagreement over Twitter, Gojira must have felt rather awkward. Either way, the band apparently responded by sending Chvrches a care-package of their merch. Mayberry had this to say during an NME interview when asked about the metal community's response to her dust-up with Jasta:
"I thought it was really cool because it just showed that kind of thinking in the metal community isn't stood for any more. And Gojira actually sent us a merch package so we got a crap ton of Gojira t-shirts. That was really nice. It reflects the community and informs the community... I just didn't understand. I was like, 'That's not what Deftones has ever been about'."[via ThePRP]
