Trivium will return to the UK and Europe in Spring 2018, the Floridian's first visit since the October release of their blistering eighth album, 'The Sin And The Sentence'.

'The Sin And The Sentence Tour' kicks off in Köln on March 11th and piledrives across Europe, wrapping up in the UK on April 21st at London's O2 Academy Brixton.

Trivium will be joined by special guests Code Orange (UK only), Power Trip and Venom Prison.


Trivium tell us:

"It’s time to bring 'The Sin And The Sentence' to the UK and Europe!

"One of the greatest things about headlining a tour is picking the bands to round out the bill. Code Orange, Power Trip and Venom Prison are not only the leading edge of the next wave of great Metal acts, they are also three of our personal favourites.

"We are going to dive deep into our back catalogue to pair up the new tunes with some older classics and a few rarities we haven't played in a long time. See you all very soon!"

Upon release, Trivium's 'The Sin And The Sentence' clinched the top spot on both Billboard's Top Rock Albums and the Hard Rock Albums chart, their second number one. Globally, the record made a stellar impact too, arriving Top 5 in Canada and Australia while cracking the Top 20 in the UK and Germany, scoring some of the band's highest chart positions to date.

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
