French metal band Gojira have announced that they will be releasing their new studio album Magma on June 17th via Roadrunner Records. To give fans a taste of what’s to come, the band has released a stream of the 4th track from the album, “Stranded”, which shows that the band has definitely evolved their sound. There is still a lot of aggressive rage bursting forth but there is also a mature restraint and quiet beauty through the song.
Vocalist/guitarist Joe Duplantier explains, “We are very excited to release our new album ‘Magma’. We put everything we had into these songs. This album is our flesh and blood.”
A North American tour will be announced on May 2nd. You can pre-order Magma right here.
