Trivium's Matt Heafy

Trivium Confirm New Drummer, Share Audition Video


Trivium have officially confirmed that they have tapped drummer Alex Bent (Dragonlord, ex-Battlecross, etc.) for their European/UK tour next month. Rumors of Bent being recruited by the band first emerged a few weeks back. Whether or not his involvement will extend beyond that tour remains to be seen, as vocalist/guitarist Matt Heafy recently stated that the band’s most recent drummers, including Bent‘s predecessor, Paul Wandtke, were ‘session’ musicians. Trivium bassist Paolo Gregoletto confirmed Bent‘s new role tonight (January 22nd,) tweeting:

“So as to who is playing for us in the UK/EU… Alex sent us this video two days after being put in touch with him. We also had a few weeks of rehearsal together in November. 💯”
