Floridian heavy metallers Trivium have kept it simple and straight-forward with the video for ‘The Wretchedness Inside’, the new single and midpoint track from last year’s full-length, ‘The Sin And The Sentence’.
Speaking with British publication Metal Hammer, frontman Matt Heafy explained the track.
“It’s about being addicted to a bad situation, knowing it and not being willing to get out of it, but recognising it. Abusive relationships, abusive friendships, toxic addiction, something like that. When you pop out and have a moment of clarity and a moment of consciousness, and you’re like, ‘Why am I in this? This is terrible for me. I need to get out.’, and you just hop back in. It’s the idea of Stockholm syndrome, something like that, in a song.”

The band’s eighth studio album, ‘The Sin And The Sentence’, is out now via Roadrunner Records.
