Trivium are giving away a free MP3 of ‘Kirisute Gomen’ at 5am GMT Thursday, 31 July 2008 from all Roadrunner and Trivium websites for 24 hours.
The opening track from their forthcoming fourth album, Shogun keeps on the Japanese theme by referring to the executuon privileges of a Samurai warrior. Have they been watching a bit of Heroes? Here’s the artwork anyway.
The first release will be of ‘Into The Mouth Of Hell We March’ on 11 August 2008 and it will be a digital download affair that happily coincides with the new Madden NFL game it appears on.
Did you know Trivium have sold almost one million records now? Well, they have. Did you know that Madden NFL has shifted over 70 million copies? Well, it has.
The first proper single release, however, will be ‘Down From The Sky’ on 1 September 2008. They just shot a video for that.
