Grammy-nominated band TRIVIUM — Matt Heafy [vocals, guitar], Corey Beaulieu [guitar], Paolo Gregoletto [bass], and Alex Bent [drums] — will release their ninth full length, What The Dead Men Say, through Roadrunner Records this Friday, April 24. The album, which was produced by Trivium and Josh Wilbur, is available for pre-order on Amazon (this link helps support this website). Jim reviewed it recently, and we spoke to bassist Paolo as well.
Previously, Trivium shared a video for the first single “Catastrophist” and the title track, the latter of which was shot under quarantine circumstances. Most recently, the band dropped new song “Amongst The Shadows & The Stones.”
Trivium are embarking on a series of release week events. On the actual Friday, April 24 release date, Heafy will do a full album playthrough on his massively popular Twitch channel at 3pm ET / 8pm BST.
On Saturday, April 25, Trivium’s explosive main stage performance at the UK’s Download Festival from Summer 2019 will stream on Knotfest.com at 3pm ET / 8pm BST. Band members will be answering fan questions and chatting during that time.
On Monday, April 27, Trivium will set up a virtual in-store, which they will livestream at 3pm ET / 8pm BST at www.trivium.org. Fans can pre-order a CD copy of What The Dead Men Say here (with international shipping available for non-US residents) and have it personalised by the band, who will be signing copies of the album live during the virtual event.
Lastly, on Thursday, April 30 at 3pm ET / 8pm BST, Trivium’s 2018 headline show at the O2 Academy Brixton in London, England will broadcast on the band’s YouTube channel. The band will be chatting with fans in the comments.
