Fan-filmed video footage of GOJIRA‘s August 31 performance at A38 in Budapest, Hungary can be seen below.

GOJIRA‘s fifth album, “L’Enfant Sauvage”, sold almost 11,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 34 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band’s previous CD, “The Way Of All Flesh”, opened with 4,200 units back in 2008 to land at No. 138.

“L’Enfant Sauvage” entered the official chart in France at position No. 7 (No. 17 on the digital chart).

“L’Enfant Sauvage” (which translates to “The Wild Child”) features 11 tracks of mind-bending, thunderous metal. The CD was recorded at Spin Recording Studios in Long Island City, New York with co-producer Josh Wilbur (LAMB OF GOD).

In a March 2013 interview with Loudwire, GOJIRA guitarist/vocalist Joseph Duplantier stated about “L’Enfant Sauvage”‘s success: “We just give our best all the time to be available for our music and I don’t even know where it comes from. I guess the music is good and people dig it — there’s a balance in the music, there’s not too much aggression so if you’re a metal fan, you’ll get your fix, but still you will have some other moments and a door open for more people to appreciate our music.”

He continued: “When I listen to my record, I’m like, ‘Fuck, this should be better, this should be like this or that,’ and then I see all these good comments about the album and I’m just, like, ‘Wow, this is awesome.’ But I have no idea what [fans] experience when they listen to the record. We’re too close to the damn thing.”
