Watch Atreyu Drummer/Vocalist Brandon Saller + Howard Jones Front Trivium
Last week, Trivium announced that vocalist Matt Heafy would be leaving their headlining tour to be at home with his pregnant wife. Light the Torch and former Killswitch Engage vocalist Howard Jones, Avatar frontman Johannes Eckerström and YouTuber Jared Dines have been performing with the band during his absence.
Last night (Nov. 2) was the tour's final date and the band brought out another special guest: Atreyu drummer/vocalist Brandon Saller. Both he and Jones performed “Until the World Goes Cold," which you can watch fan-filmed video of below.
As aforementioned, Heafy left the tour last week. He revealed the news in a video statement, saying, "I just had to fly back unexpectedly home to Orlando. As you know, my wife and I are expecting twins, and as you also know [with] pregnancy, there are no definitive answers on when things are happening. Especially when it's two."
He continued, "It's very weird for me to be on the best North American tour of my career, and then to have to fly home. The plan was obviously to do the entire thing, but thankfully Howard Jones, Jared Dines and Johannes [Eckerström] are all working together with Paolo, Corey and Alex to make the set happening."
