Trivium’s Matt Heafy has performed an acoustic cover of Soundgarden song Black Hole Sun.

The frontman also plays a stripped-back version of Until The World Goes Cold, lifted from their 2015 album Silence In The Snow.

Trivium recently announced a 33-date European tour in 2017, kicking off the trek in the UK in February.

Heafy said: “The UK was the first place to embrace Trivium on the planet – and Europe was the first home for Trivium playing internationally way back in 2003.

“It’s our honour to be able to complete the Silence In The Snow album tour in the UK and Europe. We have had some of the most integral and historic moments of our career in both spots, and we look forward to celebrating our love of music with all of you. See you very soon.”

Trivium will also re-release their hard-to-find 2003 debut album Ember To Inferno on December 2. They can be pre-ordered via the band’s website.

Heafy said they decided to reissue the record to show their fans the “early beginnings of Trivium.”

He adds: “To look back at Ember as the starting point of Trivium becoming recognised worldwide is a staggering thought for me, considering I was 1617 years old during the writing and recording of the record.”

“To this day, I am still completely blown away that people are singing words to songs I wrote when I was 16 years old. It’s an amazing feeling.”
