During a stop at Toronto's Phoenix Concert Theatre while on their recent headlining tour, Exclaim! TV caught up with Gojira frontman Joe Duplantier. He talked about getting back to performing small clubs rather than arenas, as well as the band's songwriting process. Duplantier also discussed their message, how the group's sound has progressed over the years and their view on what the future holds.
Joe will be a guest on the Full Metal Jackie Radio show this coming weekend to announce details on the upcoming tour.

Vocalist and guitarist of French metal band Gojira, Joe Duplantier, sat down recently to talk a little bit about their latest and heavier-hitting album L'Enfant Sauvage. Duplantier touches on the band's natural evolution, how the album was written, sequenced and paired with artwork, as well as the perks and draw backs of having a band divided by an ocean.
Joe was interviewed by Mitch Lafon of PureGrainAudio at the Heavy MTL festival in Montreal earlier this month; the video is above. He talks about breaking into the metal scene from France; getting early support from Lamb of God in the US; the continued importance to metal fans of whole albums rather than individual songs; and more.
A new interview from Joe at the "Rock im Park Festival" this June in Germany.
