Fan-filmed video footage of TRIVIUM‘s December 5 performance at Knotfest in Toluca, Mexico can be seen below. The concert marked the band’s first appearance with its new drummer, Chicago native Paul Wandtke.
Wandtke has previously drummed for the hit musical “Rock Of Ages” and sat behind the kit for KILL HANNAH during the band’s main-support run with the SMASHING PUMPKINS.
TRIVIUM in May 2014 parted ways with drummer Nick Augusto due to personal differences. Stepping in for him on TRIVIUM‘s recent dates and on the band’s latest album, “Silence In The Snow”, was the group’s drum tech, Mat Madiro.
Regarding TRIVIUM‘s latest drummer switch, guitarist/vocalist Matt Heafy wrote on Twitter: “I’ll keep this short and sweet. Any change we’ve ever made in TRIVIUM has been necessary for the very survival of the band.”
