Alex Bent (Brain Drill, ex-Battlecross) is the new drummer for Trivium! This is following the exit of drummer Paul Wandtke. There seems to be a lot of rumors and misinformation surrounding these events so Paolo Gregoletto has stepped in to explain. In regards to Paul Wandtke, he had the following to say:

“Was a pleasure playing with Paul the last year, but we felt it wasn’t the right fit long term, we let him know a week after Orlando show [in late October].”

Furthermore, he had the following to say of Alex Bent’s new spot:

“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.”
