In Waves

Songfacts®:

  • This is the first single and title track from Florida Metalcore band Trivium's fifth studio voice. The song was released on May 21, 2011 to Trivium World members and onto the US iTunes store and Zune Marketplace on June 10. Nine days later the band performed the song live for the first time at their show in Birmingham, United Kingdom.
  • This song's initial demo was brought to the band by bassist Paolo Gregoletto. Singer Matt Heafy told Alternative Press: "By this point, we had tracks like 'Built' and 'Inception' but nothing like 'In Waves.' This song was the turning point for the album. From that original demo and the many variations to come, we were able to branch off and create what eventually became the song. This was intentionally displayed worldwide first to show people they were getting something unexpected."
