    ANNOUNCE NICK AUGUSTO AS NEW DRUMMER
    RECORD TWO BRAND NEW TRACKS
    “SHATTERING THE SKIES ABOVE” TO APPEAR ON GOD OF WAR BLOOD & METAL EP
    TO TOUR ASIA, AUSTRALIA, UK IN MARCH

    New York, NY: Florida metallers TRIVIUM are pleased to announce Nick Augusto as their new permanent drummer. Augusto was introduced to Trivium fans when he filled in behind the kit on last fall’s “Into the Mouth of Hell We Tour” trek. He is now stepping in to permanently replace the departing Travis Smith.

    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.”

    The always industrious Trivium are wasting no time in the wake of this line up shift and are staying busy as they work their new skinsman into the fold. The band has recorded two brand new tracks: the aforementioned “Shattering the Skies Above” will appear on the forthcoming, digital-only God of War Blood & Metal EP, as well as a cover of Sepultura’s “Slave New World.”

    The band will also head right back out on the road, embarking on a tour of Asia, New Zealand, Australia and the UK, which kicks off February 11, in Jakarta, Indoensia and runs through March 24 in England. This will be the band’s final tour dates in support of 2008’s Shogun. Once the tour ends, the band will head back to the studio to work on their next album for Roadrunner Records.

yeah. What happened to Travis? It sucks he left, although i'm really looking forward to Nick's playing.

Yeah okey, ehm.
I don't know what to say right now.
I'm really sad that Travis ain't coming back to play drums in Trivium anymore. He was the best drummer I've ever heard.
But of course I wish Nick welcome to the Trivium family

It sucks that they lost Travis, but I've seen Nick play live, and rest assured, he is more than capable of stepping up and bringing his own style and technique to this great band.
