Trivium have announced a pair of livestream gigs.

With pre-show support from Fit For An Autopsy, the Orlando metallers will be performing from their new hometown HQ, The Hangar, as well as launching a whole new website portal of the same name. On December 11 Trivium will be playing In Waves in full, while the following weekend on December 18 is billed as Deadmans & Dragons – which Paolo Gregoletto describes as "the celebration of the last two years – two albums, The Hangar, the Metal Tour Of The Year, and of course A Light Or A Distant Mirror".

"The moment we knew that touring was off the table in 2020, we shifted focus back to the creative process," he continues. "This stream is the closing of this unexpected chapter of Trivium and the beginning of a new one full of many exciting possibilities with The Hangar."

Meanwhile, frontman Matt Heafy explains, "In Waves is hailed as one of the greatest Trivium albums of all time. While Trivium has the greatest supporters on earth, The Shogunate is also incredibly passionate on their decision of the best classic record. The fanbase always seems to be resoundingly split on three albums when it comes to speaking of 'the best': Ascendancy, Shogun, and In Waves.

"In Waves is an album where Trivium embarked on a journey to a new world of sounds, textures, feelings, and visuals. In Waves was the moment where Trivium finally, truly realised everything of its visuals. The In Waves album changed the course of history for Trivium, and its influence and impact is vastly apparent in the current modern metal scene."
