For fans who had a ticket to see Trivium in the cities of Birmingham, Baton Rouge, Memphis and Pryor, there’s some bad news. Trivium have been forced to cancel the remainder of their U.S tour dates as frontman Matt Heafy blew out his voice directly after the band’s recent set at Rock On The Range.
Matt offered an update:
My family and friends worldwide and namely in the USA,
I always call for each of you to give their all – as you always do – and in turn we inTrivium return the favor with everything we’ve got.
As it turns out, I quite literally gave everything I could have given just yesterday at Rock On The Range in Columbus, Ohio.
I am reminded once again that I am but a mere mortal (not saying that I ever think or believe otherwise, only that at times, on stage, one does feel pretty powerful); my voice blew out by the end of yesterday’s set. My doctor's orders are that I need two weeks of rest before resume singing and as a result Trivium will cancel our remaining shows this week
I have cancelled one show previously due to vocal issues, and this time even with the numerous precautions I take every single day on the road to ensure the greatest performance for those who keep me alive, my voice still gave out.
I’ll do everything I can do make my vocals back to 100% before Europe, and know that we will come back and make up shows in: Salt Lake City, Birmingham, Baton Rouge, Memphis, and Pryor. I don’t know when, but you are not forgotten.

Trivium have a number of tour dates coming up, as they will be heading over to Europe for festival season and for a string of headline shows starting on May 31st at Forta Rock Festival in Nijmegen, Netherlands, followed by the Rockstar Mayhem Festival starting on July 5th in San Bernardino, California.
Get well soon Matt! Take care of yourself and we look forward to seeing Trivium on the road again!
