Terry “Beez” Bezer of Scuzz recently conducted an interview with guitarist Corey Beaulieu and guitarist/vocalist Matt Heafy of Florida metallers TRIVIUM. You can now watch the chat below.

TRIVIUM‘s new album, “Vengeance Falls”, made Top 10 chart debuts in Japan, Australia, Germany and Austria as well as a Top 15 debut in Canada and a Top 25 debut in the United Kingdom. This marks the acclaimed metallers second consecutive Top 15 debut in the U.S. and highest-career debuts around the globe — including a No. 2 debut in Japan.

“Vengeance Falls” sold 17,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The record — which was produced by David Draiman (DISTURBED, DEVICE) — arrived in stores on October 15, 2013 via Roadrunner.

TRIVIUM‘s previous CD, “In Waves”, opened with 22,000 units to land at No. 13 — the highest U.S. chart entry of the band’s career. The group’s 2008 effort, “Shogun”, premiered with just under 24,000 copies to debut at No. 23. The effort followed up “The Crusade”, which registered a first-week tally of 31,000 copies in October 2006 to enter the chart at No. 25.

TRIVIUM‘s “Strife” video was filmed in July 2013 at Studio One in Orlando and was directed by Ramon Boutviseth, who has previously worked with NONPOINT, DARKEST HOUR, INCUBUS and ALL THAT REMAINS, among others.

TRIVIUM recently finished touring North America with DEVILDRIVER.

BrooklynVegan is now presenting “King Worm,” the latest new track to be revealed off Comadre’s upcoming self-titled album. Check out the track right here or in teh player below.

BrooklynVegan’s Fred Pessaro writes, “My best guess is that you’d probably call Bay Area band Comadre’s sound an offshoot of screamo, but that dirty word is far from fitting for a band this adventurous. On their self-titled effort, the band mixes bits of emotional hardcore with post-punk, Murder City Devils-style punk-n-roll, and all manner of rocking…”

The following press release was also issued about the album: “Out January 8th on Vitriol Records, ‘Comadre’ sees the long-running Redwood City, CA band wield a newfound command of melody and structure, incorporating trumpets, pianos, organs, accordions, and tambourines into the mix. The album was produced by Comadre guitarist Jack Shirley who has also recorded albums for Graf Orlock and Ghostlimb.

“Pre-order the album here. Look for Comadre on tour in 2013. To date, the band have played Japan, Australia, Malaysia, Singapore, and Mexico, on top of numerous US and European tours.”

Canada’s Dead and Divine has issued the following announcement about deciding to call it quits and playing a final hometown show:

“After nearly 10 years of playing music together, touring the world and making some of the best friends we could have ever asked for, we’re very regretfully closing this chapter of our lives. It chokes me up to be writing this letter, and I really can’t express how genuine and sincere I am when I say thank you all for everything you’ve done to help us live our dream.

“Matty started Dead and Divine in highschool when he was 16 years old. It was never anything more than an excuse to play some music with his pals, and I’m sure I can speak for him when I say nobody ever expected this to turn into what it is. Almost 10 years later and we’ve toured nearly 20 countries with some of our favorite bands, released two EP’s and three full length records that have all (to our amazement) landed themselves on Billboard and iTunes charts. We’ve created music with producers who have made records that we grew up listening to; guys that truly shaped us musically both as individuals and as a band.

“We’re so blessed to say we have incredible friends around the world, from coast to coast in Canada and the United States, the UK, Ireland, and all over Europe, Japan, Australia and South America. You’ve helped us leave the Burlington Music Center and play to hundreds of thousands of people at festivals and venues around the globe. Trust me when I say we NEVER thought we’d be doing this. I remember leaving for our first tour with our friends in The Holly Springs Disaster and Straight Reads The Line, and not once did it cross my mind that I’d be repeating that process continually for the next seven years of my life. It just wasn’t a realistic expectation. We weren’t one of THOSE bands and I wasn’t one of THOSE dudes. We didn’t get lucky like that. Touring in a rock band was a pipe dream and we all knew that first tour was nothing more than a dry hump. We’d go home, go back to school/work, and continue playing random shows on weekends. We couldn’t be more thankful for all of this.

“This band has defined our adult lives, and it’s a product of your dedication and commitment to supporting us as musicians. Like I keep saying, Dead and Divine has turned into something much larger than we ever anticipated and we’re so happy that we got to share something we love so much with all of you. We do, however, need to step away from this for an indefinite amount of time and focus on other things. With all the touring comes a lot of sacrifice, and it slowly but surely takes it’s toll. We’ve been so lucky to have this opportunity and we’ve never once forgotten that, but the music industry has it’s way of very gently weaseling it’s hands down your throat when you’re sleeping and squeezing the life out of you in the kindest way possible. Smiling, of course.

“At the end of the day, we want to leave this on a good note and we can’t help but feel like this is the right time. But rest assured, when one door closes a new one always opens.

“Our final hometown show will take place on May 5th at the Burlington YMCA, and we couldn’t think of a better way to make it something memorable than to let you pick our setlist. For the first and last time ever, we’ll be playing songs from What Really Happened At Lovers Lane, The Fanciful, The Machines We Are and Antimacy.

“We love you all and thank you for your continued support. With every t-shirt and record, like and follow, you’ve paved the way for us to build this into something incredible.

“Oh, and stay tuned for some other BIG announcements.”
