TRIVIUM's Next Album Will Be Influenced By 2005'S Ascendancy

Trivium and Bullet For My Valentine will hit the road next year to celebrate their 2005 albums Ascendancy and The Poison. The tour will see Trivium and Bullet For My Valentine playing each record in full, which means that each band is gonna be spending a lot of time with that old material in the coming months.

So how might that affect their new stuff? According to Trivium frontman Matt Heafy in an interview with Rock Sound, the band is going to try and get back in the Ascendancy headspace while writing… and maybe even recruit Matt Tuck of Bullet For My Valentine for a guest spot.

"What we've been talking about is trying – not even trying – but getting back in the headspace of Ascendancy," said Heafy as transcribed by Metal Injection. "Since we'll be in that headspace, writing new music there and definitely having [Matt Tuck] on vocals. He has to do it now that it's on film. He has to do it. So that I think that'll be amazing."

Tuck also touched on some of Bullet For My Valentine's upcoming plans, teasing that there might be a collaboration between them and Trivium in the lead-up to the tour.

"We're doing some very special limited editions of vinyls of The Poison [and the 2005 EP Hand Of Blood], and combining a bunch of stuff with behind the scenes never released footage and artwork and all that kind of good stuff," said Tuck. "Maybe even doing a collab with another band [note: Tuck looks at Heafy and both laugh]. You know, stuff like that. We'll see how that goes."

The Trivium and Bullet For My Valentine tour dates are (so far) as follows, with many more to come:

1/26 Cardiff – Utilita Arena
1/28 Glasgow – OVO Hydro
1/30 Manchster – Co-Op Live
1/31 Birmingham – Utilita Arena
2/1 London – The O2
