Trivium has announced that drummer Travis Smith will be unable to join them on their upcoming North American tour with Chimaira, Whitechapel and Dirge Within. A message from the band reads as follows:

"Travis Smith will not be joining us on this leg and is home taking care of some personal business. Filling in on drums for the tour will be south Florida’s Nick Augusto. Nick is a former Trivium drum tech and is a member of the band Maruta (Willowtip Records)."

It'd be sweet if the entire band missed the tour!! Now THAT'S something I'd pay to see. Ever see Trivium live? They're like a mix between Metallica's retarded, lesser-accomplished siblings and Atreyu lol

f*** me right! After I just buy my ticket today I hear this sh**. Travis is an amazing drummer and definitely one of my top 10 favorites. I was lucky enough to catch an autographed drum head of his when I saw them with Slipknot. Trivium is still great, but this is real unfortunate. Hope everything goes well Travis and STAY METAL MY FRIENDS!

I like the Solo from "Pull on the strings of your martyr". I'm pretty sure that was the producers work though

GAAAH!!!

Pull harder on the strings of your martyr is a f***in ripoff of the Carcass song "Corporeal Jigsore Quandry!"

f***in look the songs up on youtube, listen to them, and compare. Try and call me a liar.

As for Floridian bands, I have the Abscence, and Succes Will write Apocalypse Across the Sky, although their name is retarted lol. I dont need that sh**ty band.

Never been to a Trivium show but i'm looking forward to seeing what they can do live when they roll into Vancouver. A bunch of people here hate metalcore in general but Trivium is better than average for this genre.
