Last August, GOJIRA frontman Joseph "Joe" Duplantier confirmed to Metal Injection that the band has commenced the songwriting process for the follow-up to 2016's "Magma" album.
"Magma" earned GOJIRA its first-ever Grammy nominations for "Best Metal Performance" and "Best Rock Album." GOJIRA's crushing track "Silvera" received a nomination for "Best Metal Performance", while "Magma" was nominated for "Best Rock Album" at the awards.
"Magma" took the No. 1 spot on Billboard's Hard Rock Albums chart upon debut, making GOJIRA the first French band to hold the No. 1 spot on the chart in its nine-year existence. The release of "Magma" marked the highest chart debuts of GOJIRA's career, landing them at No. 4 on Billboard's Top Rock Albums chart, No. 6 on Billboard's Tastemaker Albums chart and Top 25 on the Billboard 200. Furthermore, GOJIRA earned career-high chart positions around the globe, including Top 10s in France, Canada, Switzerland, Austria, Finland and Norway, with Top 15 debuts in Australia and Germany.
