Trivium has released a music video for the title track of its upcoming ninth album, “What the Dead Men Say,” due April 24 on Roadrunner Records. The album is available for pre-order here.
The video was shot and produced in the U.K. by director Ryan Mackfall during the shutdown. Trivium announced the release of “What the Dead Men Say” and planned to shoot this clip before the COVID-19 situation advanced. The finished product came together quickly over the past two weeks, with the full crew working in masks and gloves, and maintaining as much distance as possible.
“We always take seriously which song becomes the title track because it represents the album’s musical themes and ambition,” bassist Paolo Gregoletto said. “‘What The Dead Men Say’ started off as two separate demos but emerged from the writing session as one epic tune. This is a riff beast!”
