Trivium’s ninth, (yes, really) album finds itself in a very interesting position. 'The Sin and The Sentence' was well received, and was accompanied with a monstrous touring cycle backed up by the likes of Code Orange, Power Trip and Venom Prison including an utterly triumphant Brixton Academy show. The question is this: will 'What The Dead Men Say' keep the momentum moving forward rather than careering backwards?
Everything’s a bit weird right now isn’t? We at Bring The Noise UK hope you’re all being safe and looking after each other. Speaking of looking after people, now’s the time we could really look after the bands we love. So how can we all help the artists whose music has helped us through our hard times and been a soundtrack to the best night of our lives, now that they need us? A lot of them are trying to adapt, and use technology to help raise funds, and keep their music in your mind while you’re stuck inside. And since you are stuck inside, why not tune into some of these innovative live streams? Here’s some ways you can help...
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.
