Voivod 2014

Check out this new, fan-filmed video footage of VOIVOD’s August 9 performance at the Heavy Montreal festival in Montreal, Quebec, Canada below.

VOIVOD has recruited Dominic “Rocky” Laroche to play bass for the band following the departure of Jean-Yves “Blacky” Thériault. Laroche, who has previously performed with blues musician Steve Hill, made his live debut with VOIVOD on July 12 at Festival Jonquière En Musique in the group’s former hometown of Jonquière, Quebec, Canada.

Prior to VOIVOD’s performance at Festival Jonquière En Musique, Thériault (who did not attend the event), along with fellow founding VOIVOD members Denis Bélanger (a.k.a. Snake; vocals), Michel Langevin (a.k.a. Away; drums) and the band’s late guitarist Denis D’Amour (a.k.a. Piggy), were honored as international ambassadors of La Ville de Saguenay (of which Jonquière is a suburb) and will have their names inscribed on a plaque describing the history of the group, to be installed permanently at the Nikitoutagan Square in Jonquière.
