LAMC Productions is thrilled to announce that American metal band Trivium will be joining Singapore Rockfest II on its second day as the opener for Slipknot on 24 March 2020!
Hailing from Orlando Florida, Trivium formed in 1999 and quickly built a buzz around Orlando’s metal community with their blend of metalcore, thrash, and progressive metal. After getting signed to Roadrunner Records in 2004, the band has released eight studio albums and over twenty singles.
Their latest album, ‘The Sin and the Sentence’, was released on October 20, 2017.
On their eighth full-length offering ‘The Sin and The Sentence [Roadrunner Records], Trivium chose the latter once again. In fact, the record represents an apotheosis of every element that at once defined the Florida group since its 1999 formation. Moments of malevolent melodicism give way to taut technical thrash, black metal expanse, punk spirit, andheavy heart tightly threaded together by the musical union of the quartet—Matt Heafy [vocals, guitar], Corey Beaulieu [guitar], Paolo Gregoletto [bass], and Alex Bent [drums].
“It was a do-or-die moment. There were no two ways about it. We’ve always had this will to be better. I started taking inventory of everything we’ve done right or wrong, and it made me apply that thinking to the new music. What ended up coming about was, in my opinion, a combination of the best things we’ve ever done. We all agreed, ‘We have to make the best record of our career right now.’”
Without so much as a social media plug or formal recording announcement, Trivium broke the silence about their latest body of work and uncovered the music video for the first single and title track in the summer of 2017. It arrived to a groundswell of fan enthusiasm, racking up 1.9 million YouTube views and nearly 1 million Spotify streams in just four weeks’ time.
“By growing by leaps and bounds, Heafy, Beaulieu, Gregoletto, and Bent become what they were always meant to be”
“With this, we wanted to knock everything down and think from the ground up about how we write songs.”
“I want everyone to know we made this with our hearts and souls. It was all or nothing; we gave it our all. We’ve been through lots of ups and downs and felt like this had to capture that. It had to summarize everything that is Trivium. I feel like we did that.’
The band has sold over one million albums worldwide and staged sold-out shows across the globe. This year, Trivium got a nomination at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards for Best Metal Performance.
