France’s Gojira have released an official video for "Stranded", the first single from their upcoming Magma album. Check it out below. In addition, the band recently launched a teaser video for Magma, due for release this summer via Roadrunner. It is also available.
Speaking with RollingStone.com about the new album, Gojira frontman Joseph Duplantier says, “We want a short album. Something less epic than what we usually do. People's attentions are shorter now. So a lot of the songs are four minutes."
The cover art and tracklist of Magma are available below:
"The Shooting Star
The album is full of moments that remind Joseph and his brother Mario Duplantier of their late mother, a woman who encouraged them from the very beginning and bought Mario his first drum kit when she saw how fascinated he was by Metallica. "She was amazing," he says.
"The songs were half-written while she was sick," Joe says. "After she died, I still had to finish them. So one song was like, 'You're going to make it,' but the second verse is 'You didn't make it’.”
