Matthew Heafy of Trivium Talks Streaming, Community and New AlbumMarch 28, 2020 0 By Laura Cerrone
Amidst these chaotic Covid-19 times, it was fantastic to talk with Matthew Heafy who brings so much comfort and entertainment to his fans as a musician and as a streamer. As the lead singer and guitarist for metal band Trivium, he has been on stage for more than two decades. In recent years, he has opened up his connection to fans, not just of his music, but to those who also share a love of video gaming. He streams daily, both practicing playing guitar and playing games like Fortnite and is a master at creating community and family through these ventures which is so crucial today.
The Geek Chic Elite extends our deepest thanks to Matthew again for taking the time to talk with us. We hope you are all living your best-quarantined life and breaking some gaming records in the meantime. Trivium has a new album coming out on April 24 called ‘What the Dead Men Say’ and when it drops, you’ll need that itch for live music to be scratched, pronto.
On our website, www.geekchicelite.com, and in our show notes for this episode, we’ve got links to all of Matthew’s social media accounts and to Trivium’s, as well as their new single off the album, Catastrophist.
