Gojira Have “A Lot Of Ideas” For Their New Album


French progressive metal phenoms Gojira have been putting in the groundwork on what will eventually emerge as their eighth studio album. The band’s drummer Mario Duplantier spoke on the group’s progress with that recently to El Expreso Del Rock. Here’s what he had to say:

“…[We’ve been at] work on new stuff for a long time, actually. We have a lot, a lot, a lot of ideas. We have structures of new songs. But we are so picky that we really want to take this time to drop something very unique. And why not having more songs to record?

Instead of having 10 songs, maybe have like 15 songs; I don’t know. But we are working on it very hard. But it’s a bit early in the process to talk about the date of release and all that. But what I can tell is it’s on a good way. We are very proud of what we have right now.”

When asked about how this new material will sound in contrast to the group’s latest effort “Fortitude“, he replied, “It’s different. It’s a bit early to say but I have a feeling it is going to be heavier.”
