News that will always excite us here at Rock Sins – Florida’s favourite modern metal export and UK favourites Trivium are making their return to the UK! Matt, Paolo, Corey and new drummer Paul Wandtke will be hitting up some smaller towns and cities when they make their UK return for eleven shows in March and April in reponse to fan requests to play places other than the usual likes of London, Birmingham and Glasgow.
Trivium’s main man Matt Heafy is certainly looking forward to returning to the country that gave Trivium their big break:
“The UK was the first place to ever truly embrace Trivium and make us feel at home. I feel now – at this very moment in time – Trivium is a better live band than we have ever been. For us to pay true homage to the place who took us in first, we can now give them the Trivium they have always deserved.”
