Gojira announce new album title, ‘L’Enfant Sauvage’

By April 4, 2012 October 28th, 2016 World

French metallers Gojira have revealed ‘L’Enfant Sauvage’ as the title of their Roadrunner Records debut and long-awaited fifth studio album. The title translates to ‘The Wild Child’. Featuring 11 tracks of mind-bending metal, fans can get their paws on the album from June 25, in store and digitally. Recorded at Spin Studios in New York, the album is produced by Josh Wilbur (Lamb Of God).


“When you become a musician, you don’t have a boss telling you what to do so you have to be very responsible,” singer/guitarist/songwriter Joe Duplantier says, shedding a little light on the title and its meaning. “With freedom comes responsibility so I’m asking myself, ‘What is freedom? What does it mean to me?’ L’Enfant Sauvage reflects on that. There’s no answer though. There’s just life and questions.”


Full details of a Special Edition and collector’s package of ‘L’Enfant Sauvage’ will be revealed shortly.


The standard CD track listing for ‘L’Enfant Sauvage’ is as follows:


1. ‘Explosia’

2. ‘L’Enfant Sauvage’

3. ‘The Axe’

4. ‘Liquid Fire’

5. ‘The Wild Healer’

6. ‘Planned Obsolescence’

7. ‘Mouth Of Kala’

8. ‘The Gift Of Guilt’

9. ‘Pain Is A Master’

10. ‘Born In Winter’

11. ‘The Fall’


First single and title track, L’Enfant Sauvage, will be unleashed digitally on April 29.

Fresh from Australia’s Soundwave 2012 tour, the band next embark on European Sonisphere dates and two shows in Dublin on July 3 and 4 with Mastodon.
