Trivium Announce “The Deepest Cuts” Livestream Set

Trivium have announced a special “Deepest Cuts” livestream set. Fans will be able to watch performance on Twitch at 12pm PDT / 3pm EDT on August 29.

Paolo Gregoletto commented:

However, this is a much different event than ‘ALOADM.’ We are taking you into our jam room to give you a deep cuts Trivium set of songs that we rarely play and a few we have never played before. It will be totally free to watch on Matt‘s Twitch account. There will be some exclusive merch, too.

If you have ever wanted to be a fly on the wall for one of our practices, this is your chance. Get in the chat and talk to us and Trivium fans all over the world as we run through our most unique set ever.”

Setlist:

  • “Torn Between Scylla & Charybdis”
  • “No Way To Heal”

Trivium Are Buying An Airplane Hangar

During an interview with Rock Sound, Matt Heafy revealed that Trivium are planning to purchase a decommissioned airplane hangar in Orlando, FL. The building will ultimately serve as the band’s new headquarters.

Heafy said the following:

“The hangar we’re getting is huge. And the first step, we’ll build in and enclose in a section of it where we’re able to rehearse in there, and it’s an all-in-one spot. And then well gradually build downwards, build a recording studio below that, and then we’ll build outwards. And I imagine it would take three to five years of building that most outwards section of the hangar where the airplane would fit, we’d make it look like that Full Sail [livestreamed] show. So we’d eventually have it fully equipped. And then hopefully things keep progressing, even despite whatever the fates might be throwing at us that we can turn it into where there’s full cameras set up, there’s full soundboard, everything is ready to go, so if we wanna do the full event, we can do the full event from there and it’s ready to go.”

He continued after being asked how someone would go about buying an airplane hangar:

“Man, that’s a great question. We’ve been renting at a pretty sketchy place. Most bands, I think, are in the kind of position that we are that you rehearse somewhere that you don’t love; it’s kind of crappy; you’re paying rent to someone else. Just thinking to ourselves, we don’t wanna be paying rent — we wanna be investing in ourselves and our future, and we’ve always wanted a headquarters where we could do everything. And we’ve talked about the idea of a place where we can rehearse and also store but eventually make records in. And then when we started seeing how much we love livestreaming, it’s a place that we can stream every single thing from — we can stream our tour rehearsals or do special little sets there that are still free on our channels.

I contacted our real estate agent, who helped my wife and I get our house way back, who just helped Paolo [Gregoletto, bass] move. Paolo actually lives nine minutes away from me now, which is amazing — he just left Chicago during the pandemic; he got in a car and he was, like, ‘I’m outta here. I’m [moving] by you guys.’ So we contacted her and we were looking at commercial real estate. I saw a bunch of different places.

I’m not saying now is the time to buy, but I kind of figured now might be an okay time to look. And we’re very, very smart with our money. We’re not a loaded band by any means. I am not living in a mansion. We have just what we need. We love just having what we need. And the same idea was for the practice thing. So we were, like, ‘Let’s find something that is exactly what we need — exact size, exact shape, somewhere where we can do exactly what we wanna do.’ And so she kind of led me to this one agent where I found a bunch of places, and I talked about the idea of an airplane hangar, ’cause I saw one hangar at a different airport. And I mentioned it to my mother-in-law just in passing, and she was, like, ‘You know who owns one of those?’ [My wife] Ashley’s uncle. So I contacted Ashley’s uncle and his son, and I’ve been dealing with his son now. They happen to own multiple of these extra hangars. So it’s buying from my family, which is even better. So we’re setting it up with one of our family members, and the process is kind of going through. We’re very close now. It’s not complete. It’s not the size of a commercial plane — it’s not the IRON MAIDEN-size hangar like that; it’s more modest than that. But it’s good that we’re able to keep it all in the family; we’re actually able to support our family, so TRIVIUM can buy from them. They’re acting as the agents, and we can work from there.”

Trivium Are Already Working On Music For Their Next Album

Trivium barely released their new album “What The Dead Men Say” on April 24, but it looks like they are already working on new material. Guitarist Corey Beaulieu said the following about that on the Interview Under Fire podcast:

“Since we’ve been stuck at home and there’s no tour plans, we’ve already been throwing around new song ideas and writing. ‘Cause we’re, like, hey, if we can’t tour, we might as well write some new tunes and get started on eventually what could be album ten. There was, like, three years between these two records [2017’s ‘The Sin And The Sentence’ and 2020’s ‘What The Dead Men Say’] that I think we’ll get around to dropping another one sooner than people think. We’re just kind of using the time to be productive. And already the stuff I’ve written and then also some of the stuff I’ve heard that Paolo [Gregoletto, bass] has written, everything sounded really pissed off.”
