“Dead And Gone”, the new video from Florida-based metallers TRIVIUM, can be seen below. The song is taken from the band’s seventh studio album, “Silence In The Snow”, which was released on October 2, 2015 via Roadrunner. The follow-up to 2013’s “Vengeance Falls” was produced by Michael “Elvis” Baskette (SLASH, ALTER BRIDGE, THE AMITY AFFLICTION) and was mixed by Josh Wilbur (GOJIRA, LAMB OF GOD).
Having recently wrapped a hugely successful U.S. headline tour, TRIVIUM will return to the road this spring alongside SEVENDUST and LIKE A STORM for a run of North American dates. The trek gets underway April 26 at the Varsity Theater in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and will see TRIVIUM making several stateside festival appearances at Welcome To Rockville (April 30), Fort Rock (May 1), Carolina Rebellion (May 7), Northern Invasion (May 14-15), Rock On The Range (May 20-22) and Rock’n Derby (May 22).
Produced by Michael “Elvis” Baskette (SLASH, ALTER BRIDGE, THE AMITY AFFLICTION) and mixed by Josh Wilbur (GOJIRA, LAMB OF GOD), “Silence In The Snow” stands as a long gestating creative milestone for the acclaimed band. The collection had its genesis moment back in 2007 and was directly influenced by the time TRIVIUM spent touring alongside the legendary HEAVEN & HELL that year. Ultimately, it would take eight years before they felt equipped to tackle the challenging work of weaving their classic influences into a modern record. Fueled by the inspiration of true classic metal — spanning BLACK SABBATH and RAINBOW, IRON MAIDEN and JUDAS PRIEST, PANTERA and SLAYER, MEGADETH and METALLICA — TRIVIUM challenged themselves to attain similar levels of greatness, taking on vocal coaches and guitar lessons to further their creative evolution. The result is extraordinary, bridging the history of hard rock and metal while simultaneously powering it forward into the future.
New TRIVIUM drummer Paul Wandtke made his live debut with the band on December 5, 2015 at Knotfest in Mexico.
Wandtke previously drummed for the hit musical “Rock Of Ages” and sat behind the kit for KILL HANNAH during the band’s main-support run with the SMASHING PUMPKINS.
