Trivium?s New Album Soars Up the Charts Worldwide

Trivium's latest album, "In Waves", has officially landed at #13 position on the Billboard Top 200 chart, moving over 22,000 units within its first week on the shelves. The band also occupied the #1 slot on the Billboard Hard Music Chart, as well as the #6 position in Japan, #8 in Germany, #9 in Australia, and #17 in the UK,

Illustrating the global reception of "In Waves", the band capped off an intense week by embarking on a special, "release day tour” which took them to three countries, on two different continents, in the span of a few days. It was a chaotic schedule that saw Trivium playing to over 100,000 fans throughout their special week of album campaigning.

Here's a release week recap:

Trivium, who have been making their second appearance on the Rock Star Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, flew to Germany in the middle of the tour to perform at Wacken Open Air on Friday, August 5th, which was the German release day for In Waves. The Wacken performance was filmed and webcast worldwide in real time with the festival. Their performance was then re-broadcast on German national TV this past Friday. Wacken was a landmark show in Trivium’s career, as it was the foursome's biggest show to date, with over 80,000 in attendance for their main stage performance.

On Saturday, August 6th, the band flew to England for their UK release show. They celebrated by supporting Iron Maiden at the o2 Arena, on the final date of Maiden's current world tour. Over 18,000 metalheads turned out for this sold-out spectacle.

While barely catching their breath, the band then hopped a flight back to the US, to resume their dates on the Mayhem fest, playing their domestic release date show on the main stage at The Zoo Amphitheater in Oklahoma City, OK.

Pearl artist, Nick Augusto, has been making a huge name for himself throughout his work on the new album, In Waves, and throughout his incredibly solid live performances. His brilliant work on the new album gives Trivium their signature sound, with aggressive footwork and quick rolls being the forefront to each metal anthem, which is flawlessly demonstrated with each Trivium concert. Although a fairly new face to the Pearl roster, Nick stands as one of the first Pearl artists to give the Reference Pure line the true test of the road, debuting his beautiful Piano Black Reference Pure kit on the Mayhem Festival earlier this summer. Nick's specs are as follow:

Reference Pure: Piano Black (103)

22x18- kick drum (x2)
10x8- rack tom
12x9- rack tom
16x16- floor tom
