Trivium’s new album What The Dead Men Say out on April 24th, virtual in store on the 27th
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 on April 24. The album, which was produced by Trivium and Josh Wilbur, is available for pre-order here.
Today, the band has shared the new song “Amongst The Shadows & The Stones.” which you can listen to below. The track is now available at all DSPs.
Corey Beaulieu says: “The inspiration for the song started when a war history website that I follow posted a story of a soldier visiting the graves of his fallen comrades and he described it as walking ‘amongst the shadows and the stones. The first thing I came up with was ‘The ghosts of war will haunt my bones, amongst the shadows and the stones,’ which then inspired the music for the song. But the lyrical subject became something totally different as we got deeper into the songwriting, but that was the spark. Now ‘Amongst The Shadows & The Stones’ captures elements of the heaviest material Trivium has done across our entire catalogue.”
Trivium are also setting up a virtual in-store event which they will livestream on April 27 at 8PM BST at www.trivium.org. Starting today, fans can pre-order a CD copy of What The Dead Men Say (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.
Previously, Trivium shared a video for the first single “Catastrophist” and the title track, the latter of which was shot under quarantine circumstances.
What The Dead Men Say is also available for pre-order at Amazon
