Trivium Announce New Album And Drop Lead Single, Catastrophist

After a week of teasing, Trivium have finally unveiled their new single Catastrophist, as well as details of the album from which it's taken.

The Florida metal titans are set to release their upcoming ninth full-length, What The Dead Men Say, on April 24 via Roadrunner Records, with frontman Matt Heafy proudly stating that, "What The Dead Men Say is everything that is Trivium. 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."

"With the new album, we took what worked on the The Sin And The Sentence and dialled it up to 11," adds bassist Paolo Gregoletto.

“We wanted to build on the foundation that we established with the last album," continues guitarist Corey Beaulieu. "The record has all the elements that are Trivium – along with all of us wanting to keep pushing ourselves creatively. This led to a highly-inspired and fast-paced writing and recording process that really captures the energy of the band."

Sounds perfect. In the meantime, check out Catastrophist below, and pre-order What The Dead Men Say here.
