Trivium will focus on touring before starting work on another album

In a new interview with Decker from Wisconsin WZOR (Razor 94.7/104.7) radio station, TRIVIUM guitarist Corey Beaulieu he was asked if he and his comrades have started working on material for the 2021 follow-up “In the Court of the Dragon” album. He replied (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “No. There’s always material. In our free time, I wrote stuff, just because I needed something to do and I had some riffs, and I was, like, “Live to hell. I’m just gonna kind of start working on it. And then there’s song fragments or song demos that maybe somebody… I know I wrote some stuff and that I did demos for the last album, but when you have three people in the band writing song ideas and riffs and stuff, by the time the album is done, there’s a bunch of stuff that everybody has and we’ve never had. So there’s always a supply to draw from if we need a starting point for a song. We never run out of that.

“We’re excited to be back on tour,” he continued. “We have two records, basically, to promote since we haven’t really been able to tour for [2020’s] “What Dead Men Say”so they’re kind of a combo tour so it’s kind of a double album type tour situation where we’re promoting two [records].

“Now that things are reopening overseas and a lot of other stuff is coming out, we’re going to just focus on the touring side for a while. Since we’ve done two records in a year and a half, we have to space everything out a bit. new material Not everyone expects us to release a record every year from now on.

According to Beaulieu, TRIVIUM albums “generally” released at two-year intervals in the past. “We had released a record, then toured, then two years later [put out another one]”, he said. “That’s basically how our whole cycle has been for our career. At one point, I think there were three years between recordings, but usually it’s two because you tour and then as it is, you keep going. That’s why we have, I think, six albums that came out in October, so we’re pretty consistent with the schedule of what we’re doing. We just felt that since “What Dead Men Say” came out just when everything stopped and we weren’t going to shoot, the whole thought was, ‘Who knows when we’ll be able to shoot?’ Because nobody knew at that time if it was going to take six months, a year, a year and a half, two years – it was unpredictable when the bands were going to be able to tour and do all that. Do we want to go on tour in a year or two with a record that has been out for a year or two? Or when we kick off a tour, get people excited with new material. So we went that route and surprised people with another album. We had all this free time, so why sit around doing nothing, just trying to wait? It’s like we can always write – no one’s stopping us – so we got into it.”

“In the Court of the Dragon” was released last October via TRIVIUMthe longtime label Roadrunner folders. The record was produced and mixed by Josh Wilbour and recorded in the fall of 2020 at Full Sail University in Orlando. The album cover is an original oil painting by the French artist Mathieu Nozieres.

TRIVIUM currently supports MEGADETH and LAMB OF GOD on the 2022 stage of “The Metal Tour of the Year”which kicked off on April 9 at the Michelob ULTRA Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
