GOJIRA Reveal New Album Teaser for Magma, And We're Pumped

No photos or anything were allowed at the time, because the band did not officially reveal anything about the album just yet. I heard the album, loudly, in a wonderful room in Silver Chord Studio and couldn't be more excited to finally hear new Gojira. It was that familiar crunch of the band, but also something new, and something I think fans will enjoy.
Today, the band officially announced they will be releasing Magma on June 17th via Roadrunner Records. They have released a second teaser (first one here) but this one doesn't reveal much past the album title:
