Florida metal overlords TRIVIUM – Matt Heafy [vocals, guitar], Corey Beaulieu [guitar], Paolo Gregoletto [bass], and Alex Bent [drums] – have announced that their upcoming headline London show, previously set to take place at the O2 Academy Brixton on January 15th, will now be at Hammersmith’s Eventim Apollo.
The band posted an update on their social media, saying, “No sleep til.. Hammersmith!! London we’re coming to the Eventim Apollo, get ready!
Due to events at O2 Academy Brixton a couple of weeks ago, our show is no longer able to happen at that venue. We’ve been working with our team throughout the holidays to try and find a solution. The show will now take place at the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith on the same date – Sunday 15th January.
You will contacted by your ticket agent in the next couple of days with detailed information, so please keep an eye on your inbox and read the email carefully.
The good news is that we’ve been able to release more tickets for the show and they’ll be available from 10am Thursday 5th January.”
Tickets for the Hammersmith date will be available here.
Dates line up as follows for the forthcoming UK & Ireland headline Dead Men & Dragons tour:
The group recently wrapped up a string of dates in Latin America, one of their most successful tours ever. They also shared a brand new, official video for colossal track ‘The Shadow Of The Abattoir’, taken from their latest album In The Court Of The Dragon. Directed by Pavel Trebukhin, watch the video here.
When the tour was announced, TRIVIUM declared, “It is an honour to be touring with Heaven Shall Burn. HSB was one of Trivium’s earliest introductions to Hardcore/Metalcore mixed with Melodic Death and Death Metal; with very important lyrics that dealt with society and the world as a whole.
HSB and Trivium started off on the same record label back in the early 2000’s!” HEAVEN SHALL BURN guitarist Mark Weichert added, “There has been a strong and special connection between Trivium and Heaven Shall Burn since the earliest days. When we met Trivium for the first time, they were very young but already highly talented youngsters, today they’re a global power of metal.
Over the years Heaven Shall Burn and Trivium destroyed small clubs and demolished big arenas together, we had great times together in both Saalfeld and Sydney. We´re proud and touched, that our common history is now being continued and we finally tour Europe with the guys again.”
Opening the heavy metal festivities are hotly-tipped British beasts MALEVOLENCE. TRIVIUM frontman Matt Heafy enthuses, “Meet Malevolence – a band that will take over the heavy music world.
Paolo introduced me to their music, and I have had it on repeat ever since. Malevolence have created a sound completely and uniquely their own; and it’s monumentally fantastic. Mark my words, they’re gonna take the metal, hardcore, metalcore, and punk worlds over by force. We are excited to have them on our tour.”
After the UK dates, the group embark on an extensive headline tour of mainland Europe through February 2023.
On release in October 2021, TRIVIUM‘s tenth album, In The Court Of The Dragon crashed in at #1 in the UK’s Official Rock & Metal Albums chart (#20 in the UK Top 100 Albums chart). A vinyl edition followed in January 2022. The record was produced and mixed by Josh Wilbur and recorded at Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida.
Press hailed In The Court Of The Dragon yet another colossal triumph for the band, with Upset awarding it a full 5* rating, declaring “This is Trivium at the very top of their game.
Pure unadulterated metal, this is gargantuan music for the biggest of all stages.” Powerplay (9/10) called it, “A truly fearless album…. stylish, inventive, and brutal as hell.” Metal Hammer (9/10) stated, “It’s hard to see who can compete with Trivium right now.
In terms of a band playing contemporary, modern heavy metal, Trivium have been the best for some time. They still are, and In The Court Of The Dragon is a f*cking awesome heavy metal album.” “One of 2021’s most compelling pure metal releases,” raved Kerrang! concluding, “These are songs that are built to be played from the largest stages, and deserve to be.
