Grammy-nominated band TRIVIUM — Matt Heafy [vocals, guitar], Corey Beaulieu [guitar], Paolo Gregoletto [bass], and Alex Bent [drums] — have announced their Fall 2022 tour plans.
The band will embark on the Deadmen and Dragons Tour, a headline run of North America produced by Live Nation, with support from Between the Buried and Me, Whitechapel, and Khemmis.
Tickets go on sale on Friday, July 22 at 10am local time. Get tickets here.
To herald the news, there is a special live Twitch press conference happening now and hosted by Nik Nocturnal on his channel — featuring a guided chat with members from each band.
Trivium are very excited about the tour package they’ve put together for the fans — as they are passionate fans of each of their tourmates!
“Between the Buried and Me are the pioneers of mixing genres well before anyone else had,” says Heafy. “BTBAM back in 2002 — on the impeccable self-titled album — showed that they were unapologetically ready to mix elements of death metal, melodic death metal, grindcore, power metal, prog, ethereal — at times beautiful — passages of melody. Their self-titled record was a massive influence on me; I was captivated by the immense mixture of so many styles. Through their combining of a vast range of sonics and soundscapes, they created a sound that is truly their own.”
Beaulieu also exclaims, “We’re excited to have Whitechapel be a part of this amazing bill. It’s been over 10 years since we toured together on the Shogun tour and seeing how the band has progressed over the years and added a killer melodic element to their brutal sound just makes it a perfect time to share the stage once again.”
“Khemmis is one of my favorite new bands of the last few years, and when we were putting the tour together, I heavily advocated for having them on the bill,” says Gregoletto. “I think it’s always a testament to a band’s sound when you have trouble pinning a label to it — doom, melodic metal, thrash, death metal. With Khemmis, it’s all in there and rocks hard. They are a 10/10 live band and did a great cover of ‘Rainbow in the Dark,’ so do not miss their set!”
Trivium will also return to the road in September, serving as main support for Iron Maiden. Those dates are here.
