Released 30th April
2x Grammy nominated band Gojira have announced details of their long-awaited new album, FORTITUDE, which will be released April 30th via Roadrunner Records. FORTITUDE stands is Gojira's first album in five years and the follow-up to 2016's Grammy nominated LP MAGMA.
Recorded and Produced by Joe Duplantier at Silver Cord Studio - Gojira's Ridgewood, Queens, headquarters - and mixed by Andy Wallace (Nirvana, Rage Against The Machine), FORTITUDE is a collection of songs urging humanity to imagine a new world-and then make it happen. The band initially laid the foundation for FORTITUDE last year with the surprise release of the 2020 single "Another World." NPR hailed the track as "an apocalyptic banger," while STEREOGUM declared, "Gojira are one of this century's most important underground metal institutions." Voted by fans as the #1 release on REVOLVER's "5 Most Anticipated Albums of 2021," FORTITUDE continues Gojira's career-long tradition of harnessing their music as a vehicle for environmental activism with songs like "Amazonia" and "The Chant" not only surveying critical cases, but also catalyzing listeners to take action.
