Florida metallers Trivium are firing back up with a stream of activity and announcements this week.
First, the band has premiered a new Official Video for their single “The Sin And The Sentence“. The visualizer marks the band’s first recording with drummer Alex Bent (Battlecross, Decrepit Birth), who joined Trivium in late 2016.
“The Sin And The Sentence” is expected to appear on an upcoming album from Trivium, the follow-up to 2015’s ‘Silence In The Snow’. Details have yet to become public, but the release is tentatively due this fall via Roadrunner Records.
In related news, Trivium and Arch Enemy have announced plans for a co-headlining tour across North America later this fall. Featuring support from While She Sleeps and Fit For An Autopsy, the tour will kick off on October 27th in Orlando, FL and make its way across the US and Canada before finishing on December 6th in Houston, TX.
From founding Arch Enemy guitarist Michael Amott:
“Very much looking forward to returning to North America with this tour! We are aware that it has been long overdue and we appreciate everyone’s patience while we’ve been creating our new ‘Will To Power’ album. This run will be like a family reunion with our old friends in Trivium; together we’ll be crushing city after city with the power of heavy metal! Good times ahead, don’t miss the fun!”
Trivium further stated,
“We’ve been joining forces with Arch Enemy for over a decade now. From Ozzfest 2005, through arenas across the UK, Europe, and Australia on The Black Crusade. This next chapter is going to be one for the ages: Trivium, Arch Enemy, While She Sleeps, and Fit for an Autopsy!! DO NOT MISS THIS!!”
