It has been nearly two years since heavy metal band Trivium released any new original music, but this week they broke their silence with a new single called "Drowning in the Sound."
This new track actually comes from the recording sessions of the band's 2017 album, The Sin and the Sentence, but stands on its own as an exciting new addition to the band's repertoire. Frontman Matt Heafy delivers an impressive vocal performance over dynamic guitar riffs and rolling drums. Lyrically, the song delivers emotional vulnerability with tactful aggression and a sense of overcoming obstacles both within and without.
Trivium have not released new music since The Sin and the Sentence in 2017, but they have covered Type O Negative's "I Don't Wanna Be Me" for a limited edition vinyl record in honor of the 15th anniversary of the song for Record Store Day, and they also recently shared a re-recorded version of their own "Pillars of Serpents" from their debut album.
In a radio interview with WMSC this past November, guitarist Corey Beaulieu said that the band will be taking things slowly with Matt Heafy recently having the birth of twins and taking parental leave. Beaulieu says, "We're definitely excited to start on new material, but we're not gonna rush anything out at the moment." Trivium have tour dates planned through 2019, and their next album isn't expected to be released until at least 2020.
