Grammy-nominated band TRIVIUM — Matt Heafy [vocals, guitar], Corey Beaulieu [guitar], Paolo Gregoletto [bass], and Alex Bent[drums] — will release their ninth full-length, What The Dead Men Say, through Roadrunner Records on April 24. The album, which was produced by Trivium and Josh Wilbur, is available for pre-order here.
Today, the band has shared the new song “Amongst The Shadows & The Stones.”
The track is now available at all DSPs.
“The inspiration for the song started when a war history website that I follow posted a story of a soldier visiting the graves of his fallen comrades and he described it as walking ‘amongst the shadows and the stones,” says Beaulieu. “The first thing I came up with was, ‘The ghosts of war will haunt my bones, amongst the shadows and the stones,’ which then inspired the music for the song. But the lyrical subject became something totally different as we got deeper into the songwriting, but that was the spark. Now ‘Amongst The Shadows & The Stones’ captures elements of the heaviest material Trivium has done across our entire catalog.”
