Gojira tease studio return

Gojira have released a picture that appears to suggest they’re recording their sixth album at last.

Frontman Joe Duplantier last year admitted the band were desperate to get back into studio action, telling TeamRock: “We’re working on new songs between tours and sometimes on tour.”

Now the French outfit have published a photo of drums and microphones, with the comment: “It’s time to rock!”

Their last release was 2012’s L’Enfant Sauvage. Gojira play this year’s Reading and Leeds festivals on August 28 and 29 as part of a European tour.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
