“Working with Matthew K. Heafy has been a dream come true!” says Sophie. “Trivium have been one of my favourite bands since I was a kid, I used to dye my own Trivium t-shirts and wear them everyday.”“Sophie Lloyd is an immensely talented force of a musician and songwriter.” declares Heafy. “I recall first seeing Sophie’s guitar playing online and being truly blown away – so having been a fan of Sophie’s for several years, I was honoured when asked to guest on an upcoming track. When I learned that Trivium had been a long-time favourite band of Sophie’s – I was humbled and appreciative.”Heafy actually started work on his parts of the song live on Twitch, giving viewers including Sophie an insight into his writing process.

“My co-writer/drummer Christopher Painter and I had a lot of fun experimenting with different time signatures and using some scales that I don’t traditionally use”. Says Sophie on writing the song. “Also Matt writing and recording the song on Twitch was really cool as we got real-time feedback from fans on what they want to hear. He really elevated the song into a metal masterpiece and I’m so excited for people to hear it!”Check out Fall Of Man Ft. Matthew K. Heafy on streaming platforms here. A music video will follow next week.

Entitled Imposter Syndrome, the full length debut album is expected later this year on Lloyd’s own Autumn Records label, and will see Lloyd collaborating with some impressive names from the world of rock, with a stunning production from famed studio wizard Romesh Dodangoda (BMTH, Nova Twins, BFMV, Motörhead).“I can finally say that I have new music coming!” says the 27-year-old. “All my music before was instrumental, so this is a very special release for me as it includes vocals, and some of the people we’ve worked with are people I used to have as posters on my wall as a kid, so it feels very full circle. It’s something that I have been working on before the first lockdown, and to be here talking about it feels amazing!”
