TRIVIUM: Video Interview With PAOLO GREGOLETTO

La Boite Noire conducted an interview with bassist Paolo Gregoletto of Florida metallers TRIVIUM at this year's edition of the Hellfest festival, which took place June 15-17 in Clisson, France. You can now watch the chat below.

Speaking to PureGrainAudio's Mitch Lafon at this year's edition of the Heavy MTL festival, TRIVIUM guitarist Corey Beaulieu was asked if the band is planning to return to the studio soon to begin recording the follow-up to last year's "In Waves". "We've got a few things [coming up], like South America and a European headlining tour. That wraps up November 20 — [that] is the last show — but then the rest of the year is gonna be, I guess, recharging; we're taking a break. And as soon as January hits, we're pumping out a new album that will hopefully be out maybe August or September next year; that's kind of the goal."

According to the guitarist, TRIVIUM has been amassing new ideas for the past few months while touring the world in support of the band's latest CD.

"The whole time we're on tour, we're always writing," he said. "So we're always coming up with ideas and we've been demoing, just on a laptop, in the back of the bus — very do-it-yourself-type stuff. But it sounds great. We're really getting the ideas worked out and we're just trying as much done on tour that we can possibly do and get the songs as best as they can be, so once we get off tour, we don't have to sit around for a couple of months trying to figure out what the fuck we're doing. We just wanna get in the studio and get this stuff recorded."

TRIVIUM's latest album, "In Waves", sold 22,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 13 on The Billboard 200 chart — the highest U.S. chart entry of the band's career.
