French metal act Gojira spent much of 2013 on the road in promotion of their critically acclaimed 2012 album ‘L’Enfant Sauvage.’ The band started the year off with a headlining tour and rounded off the year on a massive trek with Slayer. 2014 is slated to be a big year for the band, as well, with frontman Joe Duplantier revealing plans for the band to work on a new album.
When we spoke with Gojira frontman Joe Duplantier during their tour stop in New York City, he talked about the success of the French metal act's latest album, 'L'Enfant Sauvage,' which we documented in our recent interview feature. During that same interview, he also discussed some of his musical influences growing up and his fondness for using a certain French curse word.
It’s no surprise that Gojira’s latest album ‘L’Enfant Sauvage’ has taken metal fans by storm. The band has been touring nonstop in support of the record and is even up for a few Golden Gods Awards this year.
Gojira are certain to go down as one of 2012's hardest hitting metal acts. Having built a hardcore underground following since the release of various demos in the late '90s, along with their 2001 debut, 'Terra Incognita,' Gojira were absolutely ready to explode into one of modern metal's biggest bands with their Roadrunner Records debut, 'L'Enfant Sauvage.'
