Some very unexpected and sad news to report from the Trivium world. It has been announced that original bassist Brent Young, who was in the band from 2001 to 2004, and played on the band's Blue, Red and Yellow demos, as well as Ember To Inferno, has passed away at the age of 37. No cause of death has been revealed.
After leaving Trivium, Brent was out of the music scene until 2017, when he and fellow ex-Trivium bandmate Travis Smith joined forces in the new band Blacknova. The band's status has been relatively quiet since last year, and now due to Brent's death, the status of the band is still unknown.
Trivium posted the following statement regarding Brent:
Our thoughts are with Brent's family and friends in this very difficult time. R.I.P Brent.
