Gojira Detail New Album 'Fortitude'
Watch a video for the record's "Born for One Thing"
Published Feb 17, 2021After two days of teasing, Gojira have shared details of their seventh studio album. Titled Fortitude, the band's latest arrives April 30 through Roadrunner.
Following 2016's Magma, Fortitude features 11 tracks, including 2020 arrival "Another World." The album was recorded and produced by vocalist/guitarist Joe Duplantier and mixed by Andy Wallace.
New song "Born for One Thing" arrives alongside today's announcement, complete with a video from director Charles De Meyer you can find below.
"We have to practice detaching ourselves from everything, beginning with actual things," Duplantier offered of the song's anti-consumerist message in a statement. "Own less possessions, and give what you don't need away, because one day we'll have to let everything go, and if we don't, we'll just become ghosts stuck between dimensions."
As previously reported, Gojira have rescheduled tour dates alongside Deftones and Poppy for later this summer. You can see the schedule as it currently stands below.
