Trivium Announces New LP Release, Tour Dates; Debuts Video For LP’s Lead Single

Trivium will release its ninth full-length studio recording next month.

What The Dead Men Say is scheduled for release April 24 through Roadrunner Records.  It will come less than three years after the band released its eighth album The Sin and the Sentence.

In anticipation of the new LP’s release, the band debuted the video for the album’s lead single ‘Catastrophist‘ Thursday.  The video, directed by Ryan Mackfall, is a full cinematic presentation that finds the band — Matt Heafy (vocals, guitar), Corey Beaulieu (guitar), Paolo Gregoletto (bass) and Alex Bent (drums) — watch a woman try to escape a pair of unidentified figures who are pursuing her.  The whole thing is captured on a series of closed circuit cameras, allowing the band to follow all of the events of the chase.

An explanation behind the video’s treatment was not provided in a news release about the video.  What can be said is that the song’s musical arrangement is comparable to works from Stone Sour while the song’s lyrical content, which seems to present a certain commentary of sorts, adds to the song’s interest.  That content is featured with the song’s video.

Heafy talked about the band’s new album in a recent interview.

What The Dead Men Say is everything that is Trivium,” he said.  “On this album, one can hear the proper ingredients of past, present and future Trivium.  The Trivium sound is having everything the band does — on one album.”

Gregoletto added to Heafy’s comments with his own statement.

“With the new album, we took what worked on the The Sin and the Sentence and dialed it all up to 11,” he said.

Beaulieu expanded on his band mates statements.

“We wanted to build on the foundation that we established with the last album,” he said.  “The record has all the elements that are Trivium — along with all of us pushing ourselves creatively.  This led to a highly-inspired and fast-paced writing and recording process that really captures the energy of the band.”

The track listing for What The Dead Men Say is noted below.  Pre-orders for the album are open now.
