Florida metallers TRIVIUM have been forced to cancel their previously announced September 16 concert at La Casa Del Artista in Caracas, Venezuela. The band states, “There are visa and other issues preventing us from legally entering the country and performing. We tried everything in our ability to avoid this result. However, it is unfortunately completely out of our control. We are absolutely gutted that we are being prevented from playing and we promise to make this up to our incredible and loyal Venezuelan fans on our next tour of South America. Our shows in Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, Colombia and Mexico are 100% confirmed and will not be affected.”
Speaking to PureGrainAudio‘s Mitch Lafon at this year’s edition of the Heavy MTL festival, TRIVIUM guitarist Corey Beaulieu was asked if the band is planning to return to the studio soon to begin recording the follow-up to last year’s “In Waves”. “Right now we’re on our last North American tour,” Corey said. “And then we’ve got a few other things, like South America and a European headlining tour. That wraps up November 20 — [that] is the last show — but then the rest of the year is gonna be, I guess, recharging; we’re taking a break. And as soon as January hits, we’re pumping out a new album that will hopefully be out maybe August or September next year; that’s kind of the goal.”
According to the guitarist, TRIVIUM has been amassing new ideas for the past few months while touring the world in support of the band’s latest CD.
“The whole time we’re on tour, we’re always writing,” he said. “So we’re always coming up with ideas and we’ve been demoing, just on a laptop, in the back of the bus — very do-it-yourself-type stuff. But it sounds great. We’re really getting the ideas worked out and we’re just trying as much done on tour that we can possibly do and get the songs as best as they can be, so once we get off tour, we don’t have to sit around for a couple of months trying to figure out what the fuck we’re doing. We just wanna get in the studio and get this stuff recorded.”
