Following the song’s release last week, British Guitar Sensation Sophie Lloyd has shared a music video for latest single “Fall Of Man Ft. Matthew K Heafy”.
Shot at Trivium’s “The Hangar” HQ in Orlando, Florida, this second single from Sophie’s forthcoming debut album sees the guitar extraordinaire team up with Trivium frontman Matthew K Heafy for an epic metal journey.
“The response to the song so far has been amazing and I am so excited for people to see this video” says Sophie.

Speaking about filming with the Trivium frontman, the guitarist said:
“Filming with Matt was such a cool experience. As a long time Trivium fan it was amazing to see the hub where they create their music and stream from. Matt was amazing to work with, it was so surreal performing there with him and actually seeing this song come to life.”
Sophie continues: “Our video crew Kal Visuals did an amazing job at taking a performance video to the next level by experimenting with camera rotation which captured the feeling of things spiralling out of control in life sometimes, but fighting through it and not letting these things ‘pull you downwards’”
On the British guitarist, Trivium’s Heafy said:
“Sophie Lloyd is an immensely talented force of a musician and songwriter. 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 honored when asked to guest on an upcoming track. When I learned that Trivium had been a long-time favorite band of Sophie’s – I was humbled and appreciative.”
The track is taken from Sophie’s debut album, entitled Imposter Syndrome, which will see release later this year and sees Sophie 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 Sophie. “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!”
Most recently, Sophie could be seen shredding on stage as guitarist for multi-platinum recording artist Machine Gun Kelly on his recent Mainstream Sellout World Tour, which included sold out shows at legendary venues such Madison Square Garden in New York and Wembley Arena in London.
