From a press release (I don’t really need to articulate the extent of my excitement over this, because I’m sure you can imagine it, and please do feel free to imagine me in a state of throbbing excitement):
“New York, NY: French metal act Gojira, easily one of the most buzzed about and beloved extreme bands of the past five years, have revealed L’Enfant Sauvage as the title of their Roadrunner Records debut. The title translates to “The Wild Child.” The album, which features 11 tracks of mind-bending metal, is scheduled to land at retail on June 26 (USA).
“When you become a musician, you don’t have a boss telling you what to do so you have to be very responsible,” singer/guitarist/songwriter Joe Duplantier said, shedding a little light on the title and its meaning. “With freedom comes responsibility so I’m asking myself, ‘What is freedom? What does it mean to me?’ L’Enfant Sauvage reflects on that. There’s no answer though. There’s just life and questions.”
A special collector’s package of L’Enfant Sauvage will feature two bonus tracks and a double-colored vinyl version of the record, along with an exclusive t-shirt. Pre-orders will launch here shortly.”
The track listing for L’Enfant Sauvage is as follows:
2. L’Enfant Sauvage
3. The Axe
4. Liquid Fire
5. The Wild Healer
6. Planned Obsolescence
7. Mouth Of Kala
8. The Gift Of Guilt
9. Pain Is A Master
10. Born In Winter
11. The Fall
OH. MAI. FUCKING. GAWD.
I just came again.
Oh THAT’s what that means. I thought it meant The Baby Sausage. French is a fucking crazy language.
Oh sweet mama
Finally! One can already hear the whales in one’s head. 😀
I’m excited for this because 1.) it’s Gojira and 2.) it seems to be philosophically driven.
So, again. Want.
The only problem I see with this is that its being put out by Roadrunner. Opeth put out 2 typical death Opeth albums when they signed, so hopefully that’s what happens here as well (crossing fingers)
