The frontman, who shared the new project yesterday (April 16) on YouTube, has already released an acoustic EP for each of Trivium’s previous LP’s, including ‘The Crusade’, ‘Ascendency’ and ‘Shogun’.

The ‘What The Dead Men Say’ acoustic EP tracklist is as follows:

01. ‘What The Dead Man Say’
02. ‘Catastrophist
03. ‘Bleed Into Me
04. ‘The Defiant
05. ‘Scattering The Ashes

Listen to the new EP below:

Back in September, Heafy confirmed the sad news that former Trivium bassist Brent Young had died.

Young played on the metal band’s 2003 debut album ‘Ember To Inferno’, as well as their ‘The Blue Demo’ record.

“We have just been given word on the passing of one of the early members of Trivium, Brent Young,” Heafy wrote on Instagram.

“Having had a couple wonderful years with Brent in the Florida local band scene, doing the Blue demo and ETI together, the very first European mini-tour and first USA tour together – I have nothing but amazing memories of a wonderful person. Our hearts and condolences go out to all of Brent’s family and friends.”







Earlier this year, Heafy shared a heavy metal cover of sea shanty ‘Wellerman’.

The frontman is one of many artists to hop on the recent TikTok trend of sea shanties, which was kickstarted by Scottish postman Nathan Evans.

Putting his own spin on the popular sailor anthem, Heafy reworked the track on his Twitch account in February mixing it with some raging riffs and thunderous drum kicks.
