If the rest of Trivium’s career is made up of shows like this and albums like The Sin and the Sentence, they won’t go down as that band who followed the leaders; they’ll go down as leaders on their own terms.
For years now Trivium have been proudly supporting bands they love, vocalising their support on stage, through interviews and on their shirts. Your first loves always inform your future loves, and the best gateway should bands do the same. Their current tour package of Code Orange, Power Trip and Venom Prison is just the latest example of Trivium’s desire to share great music with their fans. Not only that though, it’s a bold statement of confidence from a band so deep into their career that they would risk bringing bands on the brink of their peak to open for them without fear.
Ever since the release of 2014’s I Am King, there’s been an undeniable buzz gathering around Code Orange. Three years on the band are back with their Roadrunner Records debut, Forever. Kicking off the album campaign back in late 2016 with the record's title track and an ominous video, Pittsburgh’s finest pick up exactly where they left off.
