More Details on GOJIRA's Upcoming EP Revealed; Full-Length Also Coming This Year
We all collectively fapped last week when the new Gojira track leaked that featured Devin Townsend and Fredrik Thordendal and now there is even more Gojira news. Frontman Joe Duplantier spoke to Metal Hammer magazine and revealed some of the A-list guest stars that fans will hear on their upcoming release:
"I decided to ask a few singers from other metal bands if they would help us," Duplantier explained. "They all said yes! So Randy Blythe from Lamb of God is involved. He sings on one song. Max Cavalera is involved, too, and Anders from In Flames. Devin Townsend is also singing on the EP. It's taking a long time to organize but it's gonna be worth it."
Wow. Now THAT'S how you compile a list of guest stars. As for the type of sound fans can expect:
“It’s Gojira but wiser and heavier,” says the singer. “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!”
The EP is scheduled to be released sometime in September. And the greatest part of the story is that the band is currently hard at work on a full length release with Duplantier promising that it would be released later in the year. Two Gojira releases in one year? YES, PLEASE!
