Trivium Frontman Says New LP “A Whole New Thing”

Matt Heafy

Trivium’s Matt Heafy was on the Metal Injection Livecast this week and Matt discussed the band’s forthcoming album, which could be out in early August.

“We’ve been writing this same record for a year and a half. We demoed it for eight months… [but] when we actually started the record, it took us about three months or so of tracking and it’s gonna take maybe two months to mix, and Colin and the team are working on that right now,” said Matt.

Then Matt discussed the forthcoming album’s cover art and said that’s also been in the works for something like a year or so.

“There’s a bunch of different people involved with all the different stages of the art. But we’re not releasing yet. We have everything, yes, but we can’t give any of it out.”

Things are hush-hush in the Trivium universe. Top secret shit.

He said that “on this [record], nothing sounds like any of the other ones at all, but with this record it sounds more like us than ever. ‘Cause with the other records, you could go, ‘OK, maybe this sounds like this kind of music’ or ‘This sounds like this kind of band,’ or maybe ‘It pulls from here or there,’ whereas this is just definitive ‘our’ sound; there is nothing that really deviates from the past; it’s all in the realm of itself. I know that’s really broad and it doesn’t really answer too much of it. It’s a whole new thing. It’s not like anything we’ve done before…again.”

Something tells me it’ll still be poop.
