Gojira to release seventh album, ‘Fortitude,’ on April 30

Gojira will release its seventh full-length studio album, “Fortitude,” on April 30, 2021, via Roadrunner Records. The band has shared the forthcoming album’s first single, “Born for One Thing,” which is available on all streaming platforms and accompanied by a Charles De Meyer-directed official music video shot in France and Belgium. Available for pre-order today, “Fortitude” is Gojira’s first album in five years and the follow-up to 2016’s Grammy-nominated LP “Magma.”

“We have to practice detaching ourselves from everything, beginning with actual things,” vocalist/guitarist Joe Duplantier says said of the anti-consumerist message of “Born for One Thing,” which was partially inspired by the Tibetan and Thai philosophers he read in his youth back in France. “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.”

“Fortitude” was 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.
