L’Enfant Sauvage is due out June 26, 2012 on Roadrunner Records and when asked about the direction of the album, vocalist/guitarist Joe Duplantier commented:
“It’s more mature . . . There’s less bullshit. [laughs] There’s more intensity and simplicity at the same time. Drum-wise, for example, Mario [Duplantier] has been serving the music, but with a lot more of his experience in the drumming, and a lot of reflection in the work. His drum fills, for example, are be simpler, yet more technical. For a real drummer to hear [what he's doing], they’ll go, ‘Holy shit, man. What did you do?’ For someone who is not into drumming, they’ll go through the song and say, ‘Wow, cool.’ There’s more technique and more experience.” He continued, “Personally, I had a vision of this album, with what I would like to see happening. I was imagining something very organic and very deep, with more natural sounds. Music-wise, it’s something like a dream and a storm… it’s magical. I had this vision with colors, sounds and shapes in my mind. I almost dreamed about it. ‘Wow, I feel like this album is going to be like that.’ But I didn’t know.”
