The Sword Loses Drummer, 'Slashes' Tour


AUSTIN, TX (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — On the heels of the cancellation of their European tour, Austin, TX’s The Sword have canceled the remainder of their scheduled US dates due to the departure of their drummer, Trivett Wingo.

According to the band's website, the split is "amicable and both Trivett and the rest of the band wish each other the best of the luck with their respective plans." The Sword are already working to reschedule their European and US dates.



Trivett explained the split on the band's website:

“It is with deep sadness that I am announcing my departure from The Sword. After nearly seven years and some of the most amazing adventures of a lifetime, I have arrived at a place where I am physically and emotionally unable to continue on as part of The Sword. If I could go any further, I would as I love the music and JD, Bryan and Kyle are people that I deeply respect, but I have reached a point where I just can’t do this anymore…I thank you and apologize for any disappointment that this may cause anyone, not least of which The Sword.”



Here is an official statement from The Sword:

“We wish Trivett nothing but the best, and it is with heavy hearts that we bid him farewell…We wish he could continue the adventure with us, but we understand that the life of a touring musician is not for everyone. It’s been a hell of a ride, and we’re sad to see this part of the journey end. The show must go on, though, and will be back on the road as soon as humanly possible.” – JD, Kyle & Bryan
