Trivium announce new album What The Dead Men Say and share new song Catastrophist!
Over the past 20 years, Grammy-nominated metal band Trivium have quietly claimed their place at the forefront of heavy music in the 21st century. The Florida-based quartet is pleased to announce that its ninth full length record, What The Dead Men Say, will be released through Roadrunner Records on April 24th (pre-order HERE). Today, the band also share the video for the first single off the new record, Catastrophist.
Trivium released its now-canonical album Ascendancy in 2005. It was recognized as KERRANG!’s album of the year, achieved a gold certification in the UK, and eclipsed sales of 500,000 worldwide. It ignited a string of six consecutive Top 25 debuts on the Billboard Top 200 and five straight Top 3 debuts on the Top Hard Rock Albums Chart, culminating on 2017’s benchmark The Sin And The Sentence. That album elevated the group’s total stream tally past a quarter-of-a-billion. Not to mention, they performed alongside Metallica, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, and many others and graced the main stages of Download, Bloodstock, KNOTFEST, and more.
After two decades, eight albums, and hundreds of sold out shows, Trivium actualize the all-encompassing ambition they first set in motion back in 1999. On their ninth full-length album, What The Dead Men Say, the Florida quartet – Matt Heafy (vocals, guitar), Corey Beaulieu (guitar), Paolo Gregoletto (bass), and Alex Bent (drums) – ascend to an inimitable nexus of masterful melody, hypnotic hook-craft, tight thrash, black metal scope, and cinematic extremity.
“We wanted to build on the foundation that we established with the last album. What The Dead Men Say is everything that is Trivium, along with all of us wanting to keep pushing ourselves creatively. This led to a highly-inspired and fast-paced writing and recording process that really captures the energy of the band. On this album, one can hear the proper ingredients of past, present, and future Trivium,” explains Heafy.
Trivium will spend most of 2020 on the road in support of What The Dead Men Say. The band will tour with Megadeth and Lamb of God this summer and fall. For list of the tour dates and more informations head to www.trivium.org and/or www.fb.com/trivium.
