TRIVIUM guitarist/vocalist Matt Heafy, guitarist Corey Beaulieu and bassist Paolo Gregoletto stopped by the studios of the the Tampa Bay radio station 98 Rock in their home state of Florida to perform acoustic versions of their songs “Built To Fall” and “Dying In Your Arms”, as well as a cover version of the IRON MAIDEN classic “Iron Maiden”. Check out the footage below.
TRIVIUM‘s latest album, “In Waves”, sold 22,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 13 on The Billboard 200 chart — the highest U.S. chart entry of the band’s career. The group’s previous CD, “Shogun”, opened with just under 24,000 units back in October 2008 to debut at No. 23. The effort followed up “The Crusade”, which registered a first-week tally of 31,000 copies in October 2006 to enter the chart at No. 25.
“In Waves” was recorded primarily at Paint It Black Studios in Orlando, Florida (with only the drums having been tracked at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida) with the production/mixing team of Colin Richardson (MACHINE HEAD, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, SLIPKNOT, FEAR FACTORY) and Martin “Ginge” Ford, along with engineer Carl Bown. A two-disc special edition is also available. It features five bonus tracks, plus a DVD with a 40-minute, behind-the-scenes documentary, as well as an exclusive concert filmed in a warehouse located in Orlando, Florida, which is the band’s stomping grounds. This concert features the first performances of tracks from “In Waves”, along with TRIVIUM classics.
TRIVIUM has joined forces with Swedish metallers IN FLAMES for a co-headining North American tour in January/February. Support on the trek is coming from VEIL OF MAYA and KYNG.
