Trivium Officially Announce New Drummer!
It would appear that Travis Smith is now permanently and officially out of the band.
Trivium have revealed that drummer Nick Augusto will be replacing the departing Travis Smith permanently.
Vocalist/guitarist Matt Heafy commented, “We’re really happy to have our good friend and fellow Floridian Nick Augusto join the Trivium family. Nick’s drumming is very technical and diverse and he brings a real intense energy to the band and we can’t wait for everyone to hear the new song, ‘Shattering the Skies Above,” that we just recorded with Nick. I think it’s the best Trivium recording we’ve ever done; it’s raw, full of energy and I think Nick’s drumming really pushed us to a new level.”

Trivium head our way for a full tour in March with Chimaira, Whitechapel and Rise To Remain.
