While there's no place like home, Trivium certainly aren't content with hanging their hats right now. They prefer to live on the road, bringing their brand of forward-thinking metal to the masses on a near-constant basis. The band just wrapped back-to-back U.S. tours. First, they served as  a featured attraction on the Rock Star Energy Drink Mayhem Fest, which marked their second stint on the quintessential summer fest. They followed that run up by supporting their labelmates in Dream Theater.
Trivium will succeed both of those high-profile treks by spending the winter touring with In Flames, hitting theaters and ballrooms for a five-week run.
"Trivium can't wait to get out again on the road with In Flames. They are one of our all time favorite bands and together we plan on giving our best shows to the fans," singer/guitarist Matt Heafy said excitedly about the forthcoming trek.
The tour launches Jan. 12 in Milwaukee and runs through Feb. 21, circling back through the Midwest to Chicago. The tour will hit major cities over the course of several weeks, including Baltimore, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Houston, Denver, New York and more. The full itinerary of dates is below.
Trivium recently debuted the video for "Built to Fall" from their critically acclaimed new album In Waves.  You can watch it here.

Master percussionist and LP Artist, Giovanni Hidalgo recently completed a string of wildly successful clinics around the world, but none were as memorable as his October 19th engagement at the Guitar Center in Hallandale, FL. With well over 200 eager fans in attendance, Giovanni interactively taught and performed for over three hours and left the crowd still wanting more.

"This clinic is one of the most successful ones we've ever had," remarked Don Rodrigues, Guitar Center Regional Vice President. "Thanks to our great partnership with LP and a great artist and clinician like Giovanni Hidalgo, we were able to let people know that our Hallandale store is the place to go in the Miami area for all things percussion."

"I spoke to many of the people in attendance and they could not say enough about how Giovanni both taught and inspired them," added Store Manager, Collin Grant. "He's humble, grateful and passionate about his music and the people that listen to it."

After the clinic Giovanni stayed an additional hour and a half to talk to visitors, pose for pictures and sign autographs. Many LP door prizes were awarded during the evening, including LP Mini Congas, Egg Shakers, Finger Shots, Claves and Qube Shakers.
