TRIVIUM guitarist Corey Beaulieu has posted the following message on the group's official web site:
"It's been a while since i did an update so here we go. [CHILDREN OF] BODOM tour was badass! Thanks for all coming out and checking it out. Both bands AMON AMARTH and BODOM were super cool and it was a blast to tour with them!
"We just had a break for the holidays and new years... Travis [Smith, TRIVIUM drummer] and I decided to spend New Year's in Texas with Rita (Dimebag's longtime girlfriend) and did we have a fuckin' blast! We went to see Vinnie Paul's cover band GASOLINE on New Year's night and I got to play 'Cowboys from Hell' with Vinnie and Rex [Brown]. That was a unreal time! I was hammered too which mad it even more of a badass time.
"After that we had a fireworks party back at the Dime's pad and I burnt my hand. We set the lawn on fire, the cops came, chased people around the house with roman candles, threw fireworks in Brent's (former TRIVIUM bassist) room and accidentally set the blanket on fire, drank five bottles of Jager, four bottles of Seagram 7, a bottle of Crown and 2-3 cases of beer, and we got the whole thing on video tape! Stay tuned for the TRIVIUM DVD to catch that shit, haha.
"Currently we are working on new tunes for the next album and so far it's some ass-kicking heavy metal.. you all won't be disappointed and you guitar geeks will have plenty of riffs to try to learn on this one, haha. Soon we are heading out on our tour with IN FLAMES which will be a great time. I'm looking forward to it. Can't wait to get back on the road! And bring some alcohol-fueled carnage to you all... And also our U.K. headlining tour is looking to be the biggest and best one yet!"
As previously reported, TRIVIUM's sophomore album, "Ascendancy", has been officially certified silver in the U.K. for sales in excess of 60,000 copies.

TRIVIUM used their day off from the CHILDREN OF BODOM tour on December 13, 2005 to film a video for "Dying in Your Arms", which was directed by Dale Resteghini (MUDVAYNE, HATEBREED, FALL OUT BOY). The clip is expected to begin airing later this month.
