Between The Buried and Me, Whitechapel, and Khemmis will serve as special guests
Trivium are hitting the road this fall on a North American trek. The Deadmen and Dragons Tour begins on October 2 at the Revolution Concert House + Event Center in Boise, ID and wraps up on November 10 at The Wiltern in Los Angeles, CA. Special guests for the run will be Between the Buried and Me, Whitechapel, and Khemmis.
Tickets go on sale Friday, July 22 at 10am local time HERE. Pre-sale tickets are available now using the password DRAGON2022 via at Trivium.org. Only a limited number of pre-sale tickets are available.
To herald the news, there is a special live Twitch press conference happening now and hosted by Nik Nocturnal on his channel — featuring a guided chat with members from each band.
Trivium are very excited about the tour package they’ve put together for the fans.
“Between the Buried and Me are the pioneers of mixing genres well before anyone else had,” says frontman Matt Heafy. “BTBAM back in 2002 — on the impeccable self-titled album — showed that they were unapologetically ready to mix elements of death metal, melodic death metal, grindcore, power metal, prog, ethereal — at times beautiful — passages of melody. Their self-titled record was a massive influence on me; I was captivated by the immense mixture of so many styles. Through their combining of a vast range of sonics and soundscapes, they created a sound that is truly their own.”
Guitarist Corey Beaulieu added, “We’re excited to have Whitechapel be a part of this amazing bill. It’s been over 10 years since we toured together on the Shoguntour and seeing how the band has progressed over the years and added a killer melodic element to their brutal sound just makes it a perfect time to share the stage once again.”
“Khemmis is one of my favorite new bands of the last few years, and when we were putting the tour together, I heavily advocated for having them on the bill,” says bassist Paolo Gregoletto. “I think it’s always a testament to a band’s sound when you have trouble pinning a label to it — doom, melodic metal, thrash, death metal. With Khemmis, it’s all in there and rocks hard. They are a 10/10 live band and did a great cover of ‘Rainbow in the Dark,’ so do not miss their set!”
Trivium released their tenth studio album In the Court of the Dragon last October via Roadrunner Records, landing at No. 1 on the UK Rock & Metal Albums Chart.
