Gojira began recording the Sea Shepherd EP in 2010 and planned to make the four-track release a benefit the conservation society of the same name. Unfortunately something went wrong with the hard drives and the EP was ultimately lost. Back in July the band said it wanted to recover the EP, and now vocalist and guitarist Joe Duplantier says they're currently in the process.

He makes no promises and says there's no definitive release date for it, but hey – we might finally get to hear those songs! Which is good news, because "Of Blood And Salt" is just straight up ridiculous.

"We recorded four songs. One was released — with Devin Townsend and Fredrik Thordendal from Meshuggah. The song is called 'Of Blood And Salt', and it was released in 2011. There's three other songs that were on a hard drive that crashed at the time, and it was a huge pain in the butt to retrack all of this. But it was done, like, three years later. But we were such on a roll with the band and we were doing an album and going on tour that it was difficult to go back to that. But right now, as we speak, I have an engineer in my studio putting all of this back together and we're trying to make this happen finally. But I don't wanna make a statement, 'Oh, this is the release date,' 'cause I learned my lesson. I'll talk about it when it's ready, but I'm still working on it."
