Trivium’s Matt Heafy Shares Covers Of Megadeth, Halestorm, Death Cab For Cutie & UB40


Being a new father to twins hasn’t slowed Trivium vocalist/guitarist Matt Heafy down too much when it comes to covering other artists via his Twitch livestreams. Below you can hear him take on Megadeth‘s “Sweating Bullets“, Halestorm‘s “Heart Of Novocaine” and Death Cab For Cutie‘s “I Will Follow You Into The Dark“. He’s also covered UB40‘s “Red Red Wine” in a number of different styles as well.

The Death Cab For Cutie cover in particular carries a significant emotional heft for Heafy as he shared the following about it:

Death Cab For Cutie’s “Plans” album is a very significant one for Miyuki, Ashley, and I. It’s one we’ve listened to for years together at home, traveling, and being abroad. Plans was an album we had playing during labor and delivery as well – marking a very happy moment.

I will follow you into the dark” is also the first song I played after having to put our beloved dog, Miyuki down due to osteo-sarcoma bone-cancer. Needless to say, I lost it. This song helped me ring out all the emotions so I could get back home and be strong for my wife and twins. Thank you to Death Cab for such an important album for the Heafy family – in times of good and bad.

Long live Miyuki.”
