Thrash metallers Trivium have announced a release date of August 5th for their forthcoming album, ‘In Waves’, their first release since 2008’s ‘Shogun’.
Trivium’s fifth release is said to be the band’s first album not to have a concept linking the songs. However, while not strictly a concept album, guitarist/vocalist Matt Heafy says “the music, the artwork, the videos and the live show are all part of an interconnected whole.” He also feels that ‘In Waves’ is the “the most complete project [Trivium] have ever done. We think we’ve finally made the record that we’ve always strived to make.”
‘In Waves’ will be released as a standard, 13 track edition and also a special edition featuring 5 bonus tracks and a 40 minute DVD.
Trivium are supporting Iron Maiden at London’s 02 Arena on August 6th. You can also catch them playing various dates in the UK in December.
