Trivium released their ninth album ‘What The Dead Men Say’ to global critical and fan acclaim amidst lockdown in April 2020 and have continued to lead the way for streaming performances since. Trivium declare, “It is an honour to be touring with Heaven Shall Burn, TesseracT, and Fit For An Autopsy. HSB was one of Trivium’s earliest introductions to Hardcore/Metalcore mixed with Melodic Death and Death Metal; with very important lyrics that dealt with society and the world as a whole. HSB and Trivium started off on the same record label back in the early 2000’s. FFAA are some of our best friends on the planet and one of our favourite bands; and TesseracT is a band we’ve been dreaming of touring with. THIS is the tour to bring back touring in Europe and the UK!”
Heaven Shall Burn released double album ‘Of Truth And Sacrifice’ in March, which crashed into the German charts at #1. 2021 marks the group’s 25th anniversary. Guitarist Mark Weichert says, “There has been a strong and special connection between Trivium and Heaven Shall Burn since the earliest days. When we met Trivium for the first time, they were very young but already highly talented youngsters, today they’re a global power of metal. Over the years Heaven Shall Burn and Trivium destroyed small clubs and demolished big arenas together, we had great times together in both Saalfeld and Sydney. We´re proud and touched, that our common history is now being continued and we finally tour Europe with the guys again.”
TesseracT recently announced a live stream performance for December 12th, perhaps the perfect chance to get familiar with the band if you aren’t already. Vocalist Dan Tompkins comments, “We’re thrilled to be on such a great tour. It’s awesome to be playing with such great and hard working bands; we’ll make the tour a real success. I’m sure we’re all going to have a lot of fun! We’ll be playing new material and taking our show live again is something we’re very excited about.”
Fit For An Autopsy shared a standalone new song this April, titled ‘Fear Tomorrow’. Hear it here. The band state, “”There’s no better place to mark our return to touring than the UK! The last few times we played the UK we had some of the best shows of our career, and our last headliner at Underworld is still by far one of the most insane shows we have done as a band. We were all very disappointed to miss UK Tech Fest too, so these dates are definitely something to look forward to for us. We seriously can’t wait, you don’t want to miss this one.”
Trivium, the “Kings of Streaming” who embraced the format early on, turned millions of heads with “A Light Or A Distant Mirror,” which marked the first show the band played since the April 2020 release of their universally acclaimed new album What The Dead Men Say. The show featured brand new production and was an arena-style visual show at Full Sail Live, the state of the art event and broadcast arena at Full Sail University in the band’s hometown of Orlando, Florida. Trivium debuted a new stage show that was cohesive with new album visuals and performed songs from the new album on stage for the first time. A portion of the profits of the show benefitted the music therapy program at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, a non-profit hospital. The event was lauded by Forbes, by DreamHack, and in a Pro Sound News cover story, amongst other titles. All told, the show earned into the six figures range with both ticket sales and merch.
Grammy-nominated Trivium — Matt Heafy [vocals, guitar], Corey Beaulieu [guitar], Paolo Gregoletto [bass], and Alex Bent [drums] — released their ninth full-length, What The Dead Men Say, through Roadrunner Records on April 24, 2020. The album was produced by Trivium and Josh Wilbur and debuted at #12 in the main UK album chart (the band’s highest spot here in 14 years and during the pandemic lockdown), #35 on the Billboard Top 200; at #2 on the US Top Current Albums Chart, and at #3 on both the US Hard Rock Albums Chart and Top Rock Albums Chart. The band and album were praised by and featured in mainstream outlets like Forbes, Billboard, TechCrunch, and Kotaku, as well as Kerrang!, Guitar World, Metal Hammer, Rock Sound, Guitar, Revolver, Upset, Alternative Press, and more.
