French metal band Gojira are set to release their fifth LP, L’Enfant Sauvage, on June 26 via their new label Roadrunner Records. L’Enfant Sauvage, French for “The Wild Child,” serves as their long-awaited follow-up to 2008’s The Way of All Flesh, and was co-produced/engineered by Gojira frontman Joe Duplantier and Josh Wilbur (who was behind the boards for Lamb of God’s Wrath and Resolution). Stream the album’s title track at the bottom of this post and check out its visual accompaniment at BrooklynVegan.

Gojira are currently touring throughout Europe on their own, and will head to the states in August to begin a US tour with Dethklok and Lamb of God. The three acts will hit Chicago on August 21 for a performance at The Congress Theater. Advance tickets are on sale.

All Gojira tour dates are listed below, alongside a stream of “L’Enfant Sauvage.”
