MUSIC NEWS: Trivium Announce Album Details & Release Video For New Single ‘Feast Of Fire’
Trivium have announced their tenth album In The Court Of The Dragon, due for release on 8th October 2021 via Roadrunner Records.
To celebrate, the band have released a video for their new single Feast Of Fire.
“There’s always that one song you aren’t expecting when you begin writing a new album,” says bassist Paolo Gregoletto. “It could be a riff written on the spot in the rehearsal space, a lyric that pairs just right with a melody, or in the case of Feast of Fire, sitting right there in front of us in the middle of a demo that Corey brought in. We were well into pre-production at Full Sail when we all decided that something about the demo we had tracked was good but could be even better. Our producer Josh Wilbur even had in his notes: ‘Bridge is special, maybe so special it needs its own song.’ We tore the song apart and began again on the spot.”
The album cover for In The Court Of The Dragon is an original oil painting by French artist Mathieu Nozieres.
“While the music of In The Court Of The Dragon was taking shape, we knew we needed epic artwork of the type that you might see on the wall of an important museum from a long dead renaissance master,” says vocalist/guitarist Matt Heafy. “After extensive research, we found one of the few living artists who is capable of creating artwork like Caravaggio and Gentileschi – painter Mathieu Nozieres. Mathieu took our song title and created an original oil painting on canvas unlike anything we could have ever imagined. It’s so staggeringly breathtaking and epic and it looks like what the song and album sounds like.”
The oil painting, which is also featured in both the Feast Of Fire and In The Court Of The Dragon videos, is on display at Bloodstock Festival from between 11th-15th August 2021 in the onsite RAM Art Gallery. This marks the painting’s first public showing and the first 100 fans to view it in the gallery will receive a free poster of the image.
