Trivium has delivered a very heavy dose of metal in their new track “The Betrayer,” Packed with high-tempo drums, fast and heavy guitar riffs, and some screams from frontman Matt Heafy, “Betrayer” features aggressive verses juxtaposed by a melodic chorus. All of this comes just four days before the October 20th release of the band’s new album, The Sin and The Sentence.
The band has a history of dropping new music days before an album is set for arrival, so “The Betrayer” shouldn’t come as a shock to fans. Earlier this summer, Trivium debuted the album's incendiary title track, "The Sin And The Sentence," the official music video for which has amassed over 3 million views in under three months.
Beginning today, SiriusXM's Octane and Liquid Metal channels will be premiering a new track from the album each day up until release date, giving fans and listeners an unprecedented first look into the rest of the album. On release day, Octane will share a very special Unleaded featuring Matt Heafy performing stripped down versions of Trivium classics.
Trivium is set to return to the road in North America later this month, embarking on a co-headline tour with Arch Enemy, featuring support from While She Sleeps and Fit for an Autopsy. The tour will kick off on October 27th in Orlando, FL and make its way across the U.S. and Canada before finishing on December 6th in Houston, TX (see attached itinerary). Tickets for all dates are on sale now. For complete tour information and tickets, please visit here.
Trivium will be releasing a new song from The Sin and The Sentence everyday this week.
