On Monday, February 19, French Metallers GOJIRA concluded their "L'Enfant Savage Tour" at New York City's Irving Plaza. This concert was scheduled to take place on Friday, February 8, but had to be postponed due to "Blizzard Nemo". The tour also featured THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT and THE ATLAS MOTH.
Last year, GOJIRA released their fifth studio album entitled 'L'Enfant Sauvage' via Roadrunner Records and it caused a lot of commotion within the Heavy Music world thanks to the top quality that every song carries within the record. When you add this to their flawless live shows, it is safe to assume that GOJIRA are here to stay. The key is for them to remain consistent and for you to continue supporting them.
Right before doors opened at Irving Plaza, we had the chance to chat with the bands drummer and co-founder Mario Duplantier. During the chat Mario discusses the bands mindset from the moment they started working on 'L'Enfant Sauvage' and how working with his brother Joe has been elemental for the success of GOJIRA. He also discussed how growing up in a small town in France helped to shape up the Duplantier brothers as musicians. Without further due, here is a video interview with one of the best drummers in Heavy Music. Enjoy!
