It’s been a big year for metalcore dragonslayers Trivium. Back in October, the band released one of their most gripping albums in recent years shortly after embarking on one of the few successfully-completed metal tours in the last two years. Now, the band have announced that they’ll be ringing in the holidays with two livestream events from their aircraft hangar headquarters.
On December 11th, Trivium will celebrate the 10th anniversary of their 2011 album In Waves with a playthrough of the record. Then, on December 18th, the band will play an event called ‘Deadmen & Dragons,’ celebrating their last two albums. Fit For An Autopsy will play a pre-show before both shows, which also mark the debut of the Hangar as Trivium’s livestream headquarters.
“In Waves is hailed as one of the greatest Trivium albums of all time,” notes Heafy. “While Trivium has the greatest supporters on earth, The Shogunate is also incredibly passionate on their decision of the best classic record. The fanbase always seems to be resoundingly split on three albums when it comes to speaking of ‘the best’: Ascendancy, Shogun, and In Waves.”
He continues, “In Waves is an album where Trivium embarked on a journey to a new world of sounds, textures, feelings, and visuals. In Waves was the moment where Trivium finally, truly realized everything of its visuals. The In Waves album changed the course of history for Trivium, and its influence and impact is vastly apparent in the current modern metal scene.”
“Deadmen & Dragons is the celebration of the last two years — two albums, The Hangar, the Metal Tour of the Year, and of course A Light Or A Distant Mirror,” says Gregoletto. “The moment we knew that touring was off the table in 2020, we shifted focus back to the creative process. This stream is the closing of this unexpected chapter of Trivium and the beginning of a new one full of many exciting possibilities with The Hangar.”
Tickets and more info on the events can be found via the Hanger’s web portal.
