Los Angeles, CA – After an intense summer on the Vans Warped Tour and the release of their sophomore album, VICTIM TO VILLAIN, NEW YEARS DAY have no plans of slowing down. The band is premiering the video for their single “Angel Eyes” featuring Chris Motionless from Motionless in White. Chris lends his vocals to the actual track and his acting skills in the video, co-starring with leading lady and New Years Day front-woman Ash Costello. The premiere can be seen now on the Revolver Magazine website.
Trivium have announced the release of their eagerly awaited new album. Vengeance Falls, which follows 2011’s chart-topping blockbuster In Waves, arrives in stores and at all digital retailers on October 15.
Trivium vocalist and guitarist Matt Heafy,
“Vengeance Falls is the culmination of everything we’ve gone through; the representation of struggle endured from within and experienced from the world. Every failure and every success has led us to this moment. Vengeance Falls is this moment in time.”
Producer David Draiman added,
“Vengeance Falls is a masterpiece of metal. It is their finest work to date, and a record so strong that it will blow the doors open to a world they deserve to dominate.”
Long hailed as one of modern metal’s most powerful live acts, Trivium will hit the road hard in support of Vengeance Falls, kicking off with a North American co-headline tour alongside DevilDriver. The dates get underway Thursday, September 12 at Boise, Idaho’s Knitting Factory and then continue through October 17 in San Diego, California. In the meantime, the Orlando, Florida-based band will spend the remainder of this summer lighting up Europe, including upper-bill appearances at such hard rock festivals as Germany’s Wacken, Bucharest, Romania’s Rock The City 2013, Spain’s Resurrection Fest, Sweden’s Getaway Rock Festival, Czech Republic’s Brutal Assault, and Germany’s ELB-RIOT and X Rockfest.
