Split Saved Trivium

(Rock News Desk) Trivium would have imploded if they hadn't split with drummer Travis Smith but it was pure luck they had the time needed to get new man Nick Augusto up to speed.

Frontman Matt Heafy admitted in February he fired Smith over the phone, saying: "It was hard for everyone involved. But I hope it's going to be something Travis recognises was for the better for him in years to come. For his own health and well-being as well and for our own. I heard that he's doing very well now and that's the best you can wish for."

The band soon hired Smith's drum tech, Nick Augusto but say they normally wouldn't have been able to give him the space he needed to settle in. Heafy tells Artisan News: "I'm not pointing any finger, but if the old lineup had continued the band wouldn't be around any more. The chemistry wasn't there." more on this story
