TRIVIUM Enter BILLBOARD Chart At No. 151

TRIVIUM's latest CD, "Ascendancy", has sold 6,976 copies in its first week of release to debut at No. 151 on next week's The Billboard 200 chart (No. 4 on Heatseeker chart, No. 21 on Top Hard Music Albums chart).

TRIVIUM are currently on the Road Rage tour with 3 INCHES OF BLOOD, THE AGONY SCENE and STILL REMAINS through the end of March. The band have also been confirmed for the second stage at this year's Ozzfest beginning on July 15 in Boston. Massachusetts.

Formed in 2000 in Orlando, FL, by high-school friends Travis Smith (drums) and Matt Heafy (lead vocals, guitar), TRIVIUM made a name on the local scene by winning several battle of the bands competitions. After various line-up changes, Corey Beaulieu (guitar, vocals) joined the group and they released "Ember to Inferno" on Germany's Lifeforce Records in 2003. Solidifying the line-up, Paolo Gregoletto (bass, vocals) joined the band for last summer's Road Rage tour with CHIMAIRA and MACHINE HEAD. In addition to the Road Rage tours, TRIVIUM have toured with KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, FEAR FACTORY, ICED EARTH, ILL NINO and others.
