Gojira‘s Sea Shepard EP has been a long time in making. Roughly two years, actually. And whilst we’ve heard one song already in the form of the brilliant ‘Of Blood And Salt‘ with it’s amazing guest appearances from Devin Townsend and Fredrik Thordendal (Meshuggah), I have to admit that rather than enjoying the great piece of music, I spent far too much time wondering if the project was still going ahead. Well it turns out that over the weekend Gojira posted an update on their Facebook page which explains everything and gives us even more to look forward to:
A lot happened since our last message so we wanted to give you some news today and let you know we are still alive! We know you are all eagerly awaiting the Sea Sheperd EP release. We are sorry for the delay. Some of the material was on a hard drive that crashed but we are nearing the end of a long and difficult recovery process. Now the Good news: the new Album is ready! All the music and lyrics are waiting to be recorded. Joe is already in NY to check out the Studio and make sure everything is sorted so we can begin to record next month. A new website is being built and we are working on ways to improve the communication between the band and our fans. You guys fucking rule! Thanks!
So there you have it. New album may be released sooner than we thought!
