US riff champions Trivium have released a video recapping the Autumn 2017 leg of ‘The Sin and The Sentence Tour’, featuring Arch Enemy. A big success for the band, it notched up some of the largest North American attendance tallies in Trivium’s history.
In the six-minute clip, singer/guitarist Matt Heafy reveals that “Betrayer,” which appears on the band’s new album ‘The Sin and The Sentence’, is his favourite new song to play live. He explains that the song encapsulates everything that fans have come to know and love about Trivium, while also branching out into new sonic territory. The footage ends with a live rendition of the song, which was captured during the rehearsals for that tour.
Trivium return to the UK in April for a string of headline dates as part of a wider European run. Support comes from Code Orange, Power Trip, and Venom Prison. Tickets are on sale now. Following that, the band hit the road in the USA with Bullet For My Valentine, before festival season commences.
Recorded with producer Josh Wilbur (Lamb of God, Gojira) at Santa Ana, California’s Hybrid Studios, THE SIN AND THE SENTENCE finds Trivium – Matt Heafy (lead vocals, lead guitar), Corey Beaulieu (guitar, vocals), Paolo Gregoletto (bass) and Alex Bent (drums) – returning with their first new music since their celebrated 2015 LP, SILENCE IN THE SNOW. The new LP also features the band’s first recordings with new drummer Bent who joined the band last year.
