Gojira Unveils Audio of ‘Les Enfants Sauvages’ Concert; Animated ‘Born in Winter’ [Video]
It’s a good day to be a Gojira fan. That’s because the band has served up two awesome treats for your metal pleasure. The group just unveiled a new animated video for ‘Born in Winter,’ while live audio from the band’s ‘Les Enfants Sauvages’ package has also surfaced online.
The video, which just debuted at Noisey, starts with a hypnotic guitar and percussion pattern that serves as the backdrop while, initially, what appears to be a comet hurtles through space, but once it reaches its destination it sets off an unexpected reaction. The animated promo was created by Jossie Malis of Spain’s Zumbakamera animation studio. Watch the unique journey unfold in the video player above.
‘Born in Winter’ was initially featured on Gojira’s critically hailed 2012 effort ‘L’Enfant Sauvage,’ and that album is getting a new makeover which includes the addition of a hardcover book and both a live CD + DVD from a recent performance of the album at London’s Brixton Academy. The full audio from that performance is now available for fans to hear via Spotify. Those interested in picking up the ‘Les Enfants Sauvages’ collection with the book, concert CD + DVD can visit the band’s official webstore and order it.
Look for Gojira returning to the road for dates alongside Mastodon and Kvelertak this spring. The band will also work in some festival dates, including a stop at the Rock on the Range festival in May. To see their full itinerary and purchase tickets to shows, click here.
