Former Trivium drummer Nick Augusto will be sitting behind the throne when the tour kicks off on Friday. He’d been in Trivium for five years, starting as the band’s drum tech until his sudden departure mid-tour in 2014. Guitarist Francesco Artusato spoke about the replacement:

“We are very excited to start this next tour with Nick. I toured with him in the past and I’m really looking forward to play some great shows with him. We also are just wrapping up our first nationwide headlining tour with ONI, which has been going extremely well. We are red hot and firing on all cylinders, so we can’t wait to join up with the mighty Hatebreed and Devildriver to play in front of some new faces, as well as many familiar ones. Be sure to come by our merch booth after the set to check out all new items and hang with us. Lets do this.”

Augusto also spoke on his spot as the touring drummer:

“I’m honored to be on-board as Devil You Know’s touring drummer for this massive Hatebreed and Devildriver tour. As being a fan of everyone in the band’s previous projects, I feel like my style will add another piece to the already growing expansion of their big, heavy and catchy sound. I am very excited to play their material live and see the reaction of their fans, and what kind of energy surfaces from these upcoming shows! Come out and have a good time with us. See you out there.”
