    Good things comes in waves, right? Trivium exploded onto the global metal scene in 2005 and since then, have toured with the titanic likes of Iron Maiden, Slipknot, Metallica, Heaven & Hell and many more. The band's new album In Waves is due out August 9th. We cannot wait to play some air guitar. But that's not all. There's some serious thought lurking behind the visuals that accompany the album.

    Singer/guitarist Matt Heafy said, "In Waves to us… is Trivium. In Waves is the music, the artwork, the videos and the live show; they are all part of an interconnected whole. There's no question about it, in our eyes, that this is the most complete project we’ve ever done. We think we’ve finally made the record that we’ve always strived to make."

    While the tracks boast the guitar-driven edge that fans have come to love and expect from the band – pushing some of the tracks even further in their heaviness and aggression - the visual and lyrical world that "In Waves" inhabits is overall a fantastic leap forward for the band. Inspired as much by contemporary film and visual art as by the band’s love of heavy music, all of the imagery – including album art, videos, stage sets, and web properties - take Trivium into territory that few bands have the confidence - or vision – to visit. The visuals create the special world of In Waves where the entire album package will take the listener on a journey where the destination may not have even been decided yet, much less known. It's a wide, open road and one littered with darkness and other curiosities. The visual project was collaborative effort between the band and a team of select visual artists. The band and their artists created a new, unique and wholly original set of visuals that are like a graphic novel come to life.

    There is a unifying theme to In Waves, but it's not a concept album by any means. Heafy continued, "The album is not a concept record, but there is a certain theme to all of the visuals and sonically and visually it all ties together. We are very proud of what we’ve accomplished with In Waves and we are excited to share it with everyone."

    The video for "In Waves" is set to premiere on Friday at altpress.com and we are psyched to absorb the visuals.
