Gojira drummer Mario Duplantier was interviewed recently by ArtScenics.tv, and you can watch the 15-minute conversation above. While it was conducted entirely in French, there are excellent subtitles. Mario discusses the process of making the band's new album, L'Enfant Sauvage, in New York, as well as the bond he and brother Joe feel with the United States (did you know their mom is American?); he also talks about the album's lyrical themes, how his brother has changed as a singer and how the music makes room for that, and much more. It's a fascinating conversation, well worth watching in its entirety.

L'Enfant Sauvage will be released June 26, but you can pre-order it now in the Gojira webstore!
