Trivium frontman Matt Heafy recently spoke with Noisecreep regarding the bands recent line-up changes. Speaking on the firing of drummer Travis Smith, he had offered the following:
“We told him over the phone and it was hard for everyone involved. But I hope it’s going to be something Travis recognizes 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. And we hope he does amazingly, no matter what he picks in life to do next.”
