New Gojira Album Is 'Deeper, More Personal,' Joe Duplantier Explains
Gojira frontman Joe Duplantier gave an update on the upcoming new album, confirming plans to go more personal with the fresh material.

Discussing the follow-up to 2012's "L'Enfant Sauvage," Duplantier told Metal Hammer Magazine Show, "Something I started with 'L'Enfant Sauvage' was that I talked more precisely about my demons.

"Before, I was just talking about fear in general, when you get stuck in a situation inside. Now, I go deeper. It's becoming more personal. I'm not scared to talk about my fear, my jealousy and my weaknesses in a more precise way," the frontman concluded.

The record is tentatively due in 2014 and will hopefully mark the group's strongest work to date. "We feel very optimistic [about] the future, and we're already enjoying a lot the new stuff," Joe said during a separate AMH TV chat. "We want to make the strongest album we can do. I mean, all the bands always say they try to make the strongest album, but this time, I think we will really do it."

During the rest of the interview, Duplantier discussed leaving France and the experience of becoming a dad. Check out the full chat below.
