TRIVIUM Collaborates With Legendary Portuguese Artist TOY

TRIVIUM has teamed with the legendary Portuguese artist Toy (real name: António Manuel Neves Ferrão) to release a reimagined version of his song "Coração Não Tem Idade (Vou Beijar)". Available now on all streaming platforms, the recording finds TRIVIUM and Toy joining forces to deliver a heavy a take on the classic track sung entirely in Portuguese.

TRIVIUM and Toy first connected after TRIVIUM vocalist/guitarist Matt Heafy shared a cover of "Coração Não Tem Idade (Vou Beijar)" on his Twitch channel back in 2018. A year later, Toy joined TRIVIUM on stage in Portugal at VOA festival for a performance of TRIVIUM's "Until The World Goes Cold". A bond was cemented, and discussions of a collaboration began to build.

"The collaboration between Toy and TRIVIUM has been nothing but unexpected and incredible — every step of the way," says Heafy. "From its beginning, starting from a Twitch raid into my channel; into me doing a cover that would soon find itself on Portuguese national radio and national news; into a live duo that created madness not unlike a riot at a festival; then finally into a true, full band cover with a cameo by Toy himself."

Heafy continues: "This cover, just like the original, makes you feel good. Whether you speak Portuguese or not, you'll find yourself moving and singing along by the second chorus. We are proud to call Toy a friend, and we can't wait to do this more and live together. We can't wait to see what else we can create as a unit together."

TRIVIUM has spent most of the last two years touring in support of its latest album, "The Sin And The Sentence", which was released in October 2017 via Roadrunner. Recorded with producer Josh Wilbur (LAMB OF GOD, GOJIRA) at Santa Ana, California's Hybrid Studios, the LP features the band's first recordings with drummer Alex Bent, who joined TRIVIUM in 2016.
