Gojira - Fortitude LP

  • Sale
  • Regular price $22.99


Fortitude is the seventh studio album by French metal band Gojira. The album was released on 30 April 2021 through Roadrunner Records. It was recorded at the band's studio in New York City, and was produced by Joe Duplantier and mixed by Andy Wallace.

Gojira intended to write a more cohesive and brighter album than Magma, emphasizing a progressive sound while incorporating guitar solos and classic rock elements with a positive lyrical message. The songwriting began in early 2018 but was put on hold due to the band's touring schedule. The COVID-19 pandemic interrupted the album's mixing, and its release was postponed to a later date.

Fortitude debuted at No. 12 on the Billboard 200 and sold 27,372 units in its debut week in the US, which surpassed Magma's chart performance. The album topped on both the Billboard Hard Rock Albums and Top Rock Albums charts, as well as the UK Rock & Metal Albums chart. The album ranked high on the charts in Europe and sold 9,900 units in its first week of release in France. It peaked at No. 3 on the ARIA charts. Fortitude was the best-selling studio album (pure sales) in the United States in its opening week.
