Gojira's Joe Duplantier Comments On The Band's Next Album

Gojira guitarist and vocalist Joe Duplantier recently offered the following comments in regards to the band's forthcoming new full length album, which is currently expected for a November release date:

"It’s Gojira but wiser and heavier. Our music is always evolving. I hope there is more to come from us! I believe we can get heavier and deeper and more magical than before. I respect everything that’s been done before, but I hope we’re digging in another direction. It’s not a technical direction. It’s a more spiritual direction. I think we’re getting closer to the core of why we’re doing this music. It’s hard to describe it. Until I hear the new album it’s hard to have a clear vision of it. Fuck it, it’s just better!"

You can also listen to the new Gojira song "Of Blood and Salt," which is off the "Sea Shepherd" EP, by navigating to this location.

Between this new album and the Sea Sheperd project, I'm finally going to have enough gojira to listen to all at once. One album at a time is not enough.

btw, nothinghead thanks for linking that new song on my facebook, I hadnt gone on this site in a few days so I would have been out of the f***ing loop for far too long lol

Now Playing: Devin Townsend- Planet of the Apes

I am thoroughly excited. Gojira is always hard at work. From the day I heard "Backbone" I was sold. Everything from that point on felt like icing on the cake.

Lol nh noone is as metal as my friend metal josh. His girlfriend just wrote him a love letter and said in it that every time she sees the number 6 she thinks of him. Speaking of gojira, the last time i went to the beach with the guy, josh stared at the water for 5 seconds and then turned to me and said "dude, its like an ocean planet!" me: f*** you josh.
