Steve St. Jean and Jeanette LeBlanc of “Beyond The Watch” conducted an interview with drummer Mario Duplantier of French progressive metallers GOJIRA when the band performed February 13 at the Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. You can now watch the chat below.
GOJIRA and the DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT are currently taking part in a North American tour.
The trek, which was announced during Full Metal Jackie‘s nationally syndicated radio show, also includes support from THE ATLAS MOTH.
GOJIRA‘s fifth album, “L’Enfant Sauvage”, sold almost 11,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 34 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band’s previous CD, “The Way Of All Flesh”, opened with 4,200 units back in 2008 to land at No. 138.
“L’Enfant Sauvage” entered the official chart in France at position No. 7 (No. 17 on the digital chart).
“L’Enfant Sauvage” (which translates to “The Wild Child”) features 11 tracks of mind-bending, thunderous metal. The CD was recorded at Spin Recording Studios in Long Island City, New York with co-producer Josh Wilbur (LAMB OF GOD).
