In the past three months, the music industry has produced a litany of unique live performances, all from a variety of different artists and genres. However, when it comes to the rock and metal communities, Trivium are the latest metal heavyweights who are raising the ante with live concerts.
Like the Code Orange and the Metal Suicide Silence, Trivium has planned an ambitious pro-shot and ticketed live concert, which is scheduled for Friday, July 10. What is especially notable about this live broadcast is that Trivium is hosting the event at Full Sail University, which is located in the band's hometown of Orlando, Florida. Trivium and Full Sail University have collaborated several times in the past, and the band's latest album What The Dead Men Say (April 2020), was recorded at the University.
"Full Sail is a school where music, games, movies, television and innovation intersect and converge on an incredible campus. Full Sail graduates have gone to work at Blizzard, Epic; they work at Game Of Thrones or with Metallica, several students have worked on Call Of Duty Modern Warfare and Doom ", says Trivium leader Matt Heafy.
By befriending the Full Sail team, I've been able to help them open their Esports arena and compete in Fortnite there, do student panels, and most importantly record the new Trivium album in their world-class studio. Being able to do the biggest and best-aired show on Earth, in the same room where WWE NXT was filmed, on the Full Sail campus, again shows the perfect duo between Full Sail and Trivium. "
Trivium's Matt Heafy has in many ways been the torch bearer for metal and the live stream. She was the first metal figure to bring Twitch streaming culture to the metal community, and since then, her own contraction channel has seen a massive increase in viewers and subscribers in the past three years. Furthermore, Heafy's musical covers shown on his Twitch channel, namely Witcher's song "Toss A Coin To Your Witcher", have led the singer to reach a solo agreement with Roadrunner Records.
The Trivium live concert is scheduled for this Friday, July 10 at 4 p.m. ET, and will mark the band's first performance since the release of their new album, What The Dead Men Say . Tickets to the event are priced at $ 9, and the show will also feature opener Sylosis, who is arguably one of the most underrated metal acts of the past decade.
