Hear Gojira's Devastating New Song "Born for One Thing"

French metal titans announce highly anticipated seventh album 'Fortitude'

Revolver has teamed with Gojira for an exclusive olive green vinyl variant of their new album, Fortitude. It's limited to 666 — get yours before they're gone!

It's been five long years since Gojira dropped their last album, the monolithic Magma, but the wait is finally about to end. Today (February 17th), the French progressive metal champions announced their highly anticipated seventh LP, Fortitude, and offered up its dynamic lead single, "Born for One Thing." In Gojira's case, that one thing is mind-blowing heavy music judging from the roaring, Sepultura-esque song, not to mention the band's unfuckwithable catalog to date.

"We have to practice detaching ourselves from everything, beginning with actual things," vocalist-guitarist Joe Duplantier commented of the song's anti-consumerist message, 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 is due out April 30th via Roadrunner Records and available for pre-order now in an array of collectible formats including limited-edition, Revolver-exclusive olive green vinyl. Check out a mock-up of that colorway below, as well as the album's full track listing.
