Gojira's awesome new album L'Enfant Sauvage comes out on Tuesday, June 26 (though you can pre-order it now), and we sat frontman Joe Duplantier down recently and had him go through it, track by track. He explains the lyrical messages of each song, the approach they took to the music, and more.

Here's Part 1, in which he discusses the first four songs - "Explosia," "L'Enfant Sauvage," "The Axe," and "Liquid Fire." Parts 2 and 3 will be coming very soon.

Gojira will be touring North America this summer, alongside Lamb of God and Dethklok - find a show near you!
