Roadrunner recording group Trivium have announced detail of a fall North American headline tour. The trek, which gets underway September 15th at Columbus, OH’s Newport Music Hall, will feature special guests Sabaton and Huntress. The headline tour will also see Trivium making several mainstage festival appearances at Monster Energy Rock Allegiance (September 17th), Ozzfest meets Knotfest (September 25th), JJO Sonic Boom (October 1st), Louder Than Life (October 2nd) and Rock & Shock (October 14th). Trivium recently unveiled an official live video for their single “Dead And Gone” taken from their acclaimed new LP SILENCE IN THE SNOW. Produced by Michael “Elvis” Baskette (Slash, Alter Bridge, The Amity Affliction) and mixed by Josh Wilbur (Gojira, Lamb of God), Trivium’s seventh studio album, made a stunning impact, arriving at #3 on Billboard’s “Hard Rock Albums” chart and #19 on the overall Billboard 200 marking Trivium’s third consecutive Top 20 debut. Ultimately, it would take eight years before they felt equipped to tackle the challenging work of weaving their classic influences into a modern record. Fueled by the inspiration of true classic metal – spanning Black Sabbath and Rainbow, Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, Pantera and Slayer, Megadeth and Metallica – Trivium challenged themselves to attain similar levels of greatness, taking on vocal coaches and guitar lessons to further their creative evolution. The result is extraordinary, bridging the history of hard rock and metal while simultaneously powering it forward into the future.
Founded in 2000, Trivium catapulted into the first ranks of modern metal with 2004’s Roadrunner debut, ASCENDANCY, which was named “Album of the Year” by none other than Kerrang! 2006’s THE CRUSADE incorporated new melodic colors into the band’s sound, resulting in widespread critical applause and a top 25 Billboard 200 debut. IN WAVES hit #1 on Billboard’s “Hard Rock Albums” upon its 2011 release, not to mention a stunning top 15 debut on the overall Billboard 200.
