TRIVIUM is currently scheduled to film the videos to the songs "Entrance of the Conflagration" and "Anthem (We are the Fire)", off the band's upcoming album "The Crusade", in Los Angeles on August 10 and August 11. "Entrance" will be directed by Dale Resteghini (TRIVIUM, HATEBREED, MUDVAYNE) while Nathan Cox (QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, MARILYN MANSON, SYSTEM OF A DOWN) will helm the video for "Anthem".
Due to the production schedule, TRIVIUM will have to cancel the August 10 Sounds of the Underground date in Vancouver, B.C. Canada. TRIVIUM frontman Matthew Heafy states, "We want to apologize to our fans in Vancouver that were expecting to see us. We will definitely make it up to you when we come to town on our headlining tour this October."
Details of the headlining tour will be announced shortly.
As previously reported, the cover artwork for TRIVIUM's third album, "The Crusade", has been posted online at this location. The follow-up to 2005's "Ascendancy" was recorded at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, FL, just outside of Orlando. Once again produced by TRIVIUM and Jason Suecof, the CD is "a dazzling explosion of tight, intricate and instantly memorable songs that feature awe-inspiring musicianship from all four members of the band," according to a press release.
"The Crusade" will contain 13 songs, including "Detonation", which is available for download at this location, "And Sadness Will Sear", the initial focus track "Entrance of the Conflagration", and the nine-minute instrumental epic "The Crusade".
To date "Ascendancy" has sold 140,000 units in the Unites States and continues to sell over 1,600 a week.
"The Crusade" is scheduled for release on October 10 via Roadrunner Records.
