Interview – Gojira on the’The Flesh Alive DVD & Sea Shepherd EP
‘L’Enfant Sauvage’ – one of the most eagerly anticipated releases of the year. But what about the previously promised EP and DVD? Well when we recently had a chat with Gojira’s drummer, Mario Duplantier, we thought we’d ask and put your questions to rest. Here ya go…
What happened about the ‘Sea Shepherd’ EP and ‘The Way Of All Flesh’ DVD?
The DVD will be released with Mascot Records in June. Roadrunner and Mascot discussed it together and it’ll be a DVD about the release of ‘The Way Of All Flesh’. It’s about the previous album, there are two live performances, old stuff but it’s all very interesting to see if you love the band. Also we did a documentary with a woman in France who helped us do a montage, it’s a one hour documentary so it’s very interesting if you want to go inside ‘The Way Of All Flesh’. It’ll be released early June. For the ‘Sea Shepherd EP’ we were so busy on the album we couldn’t work on it at the same time but for sure we’ll release it because it’s very important to us.
I’m aware you had some problems with computers when you recorded it?
Yeah we did but we aren’t like computer geeks and we live in a part of France in the southwest where nobody works on computers. If you have a problem with your computer or it needs repaired you have to wait for two months to get the computer back [laughs].
It’s for anti-whaling charities isn’t it?
Yes. It’s very important for us to finish this and the songs are actually already finished and recorded so we just need to add little things and have a think about how we’d like to release it because it’s a non-profit release. We want to do it properly.
Gojira’s ‘L’Enfant Sauvage’ is out in Europe this 25th June on Roadrunner Records.
