Grammy-nominated band TRIVIUM — Matt Heafy [vocals, guitar], Corey Beaulieu [guitar], Paolo Gregoletto [bass], and Alex Bent [drums] — will release their ninth full-length album, What The Dead Men Say, on Friday, April 24.
The astounding new album, which was produced by Trivium and Josh Wilbur, features the radio single, "Bleed Into Me". Previously, Trivium had shared a video for the first release from the new LP, "Catastrophist", and the album's title track, the latter of which was shot under quarantine circumstances.
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 over 500,000 worldwide. Metal Hammer placed it in the Top 15 of "The 100 Greatest Metal Albums of the 21st Century."
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. Additionally, "Betrayer" received a GRAMMY® Award nomination in the category of "Best Metal Performance." Unanimous acclaim followed from Decibel, Loudwire, Ultimate Guitar, and Metal Hammer who dubbed them, "quite simply one of the best bands in modern metal." Not to mention, they have performed alongside the likes of Metallica, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, and many others and graced the main stages of Download, Bloodstock, KNOTFEST, and many more.
After two decades, eight albums, and hundreds of sold out shows, Trivium now 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 ascend to an inimitable nexus of masterful melody and hooks, tight thrash, black metal scope, and cinematic extremity.
