MUSIC NEWS: Trivium Release New Single & Announce Virtual In-Store Performance
Trivium have released their new single Amongst The Shadows & The Stones, taken from their forthcoming album What The Dead Men Say.
“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,” says guitarist Corey Beaulieu. “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.”
What The Dead Men Say is due for release on 24th April via Roadrunner Records, available to pre-order HERE.
Trivium have also announced details of a virtual in-store performance, which will be live streamed on 27th April at 3pm ET/8pm BST via the band’s website HERE. From 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.
