Pete Bailey of the “Rock Show” on Q Radio in the U.K. recently conducted an interview with drummer Mario Duplantier of French progressive metallers GOJIRA. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube clip below.
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).
A special collector’s package of “L’Enfant Sauvage” features two bonus tracks and a double-colored vinyl version of the record, along with an exclusive t-shirt.
GOJIRA will release a new DVD/Blu-ray, “The Flesh Alive”, in the U.S. on July 31 via Mascot. The set will be made available in the following formats:

The three-disc “The Flesh Alive” chronicles the making of GOJIRA‘s 2008 album, “The Way Of All Flesh”, and the touring activity that followed the CD’s release.
