Trivium Frontman Matt Heafy’s, “Massive Royalty Check”

Following the recent success of Trivium’s latest album ‘In Waves,’ you’d think it would be safe to assume that the band members’ royalty checks are quite substantial. However, as vocalist/guitarist Matt Heafy pointed out in a recent Tweet, these days, it’s just not the case.

 

The frontman sarcastically wrote, “Dear state of the music industry, Thanks a heap for this massive royalty check,” with an attached picture of the check in question, displaying that he is owed a monstrous $1.31.
 
Trivium will be embarking on a North American tour with In Flames, early next year, before heading down under to take part in Australia’s Soundwave festival. They will also be Slipknot’s main support band for their Sydney and Melbourne ‘Sidewave’ shows. You can check out the dates for both tours below.
