Trivium announce new drummer

After the departure of Travis Smith, Trivium have announced that their old mate Nick Augusto will be joining the band full time.

He stood in for Smith on the bands Autumn '09 tour of the States.

And they've already put him to work recording 2 new tracks, one called Shattering the Skies Above - check them out here

... here's frontman Matt Heafy

“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 play the Wulfrun Hall on 23rd March, along with Chimaira, Whitechapel, and Rise To Remain - TICKETS HERE

Once the tour ends, the band will head back to the studio to work on their next album for Roadrunner Records.
