Ahead of the release of their new album Fortitude this coming Friday (April 30), Gojira have dropped another new song! This new track “The Chant” has a little bit of a Magma era vibe and a few sprinkles of some more experimental ideas. This album sure feels like it’s going to be a very interesting and intriguing listening experience. Gojira are one of the few bands out there these days that are still making “albums” and not relying on singles. I’m very much looking forward to hearing these new tracks live. Having seen Gojira many times live now, I can definitely tell these new songs will take on a whole other life when played live!
April 30th will be a great day as Gojira will be releasing their long awaited new album, Fortitude. Today though, Gojira released another new track, “Into The Storm.” According to singer/guitarist Joe Duplantier “This song is infused with the concept of civil disobedience. Acting accordingly with our deepest wisdom and standing for what is precious and good in this world. The only possible revolution is the one that blossoms from within us. Change will come from individuals. Laws are meant to be bent and shaped to our vital needs. LAWS WILL FOLLOW!” All I can say is that these 3 songs released so far, have me extremely pumped for this album!
Today, Gojira announced their long awaited new album will be released on April 30th. The album entitled, Fortitude, was produced by the bands Joe Duplantier and mixed by the legendary Andy Wallace. During a recent interview, it is was revealed that the band had originally completed the album in early 2020 and intended to surprise release it last June, just ahead of their then planned 2020 summer touring with Deftones. The first single off the album is also the first track, “Born For One Thing” and it’s one hell of a way to kick things off! Pre-Orders are now available HERE.
