Drummer leaves The Sword

2010-10-11 by Dr Dave De Sylvia STAFF | 31 Comments
The Sword drummer Trivett Wingo has parted company with the band on amicable terms.

Wingo wrote: "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 would like to thank the wonderful people who made this experience what it has been: the fans, the people that I have worked and all of the bands and musicians that have inspired me over the years. I thank you and apologize for any disappointment that this may cause anyone, not least of which The Sword."

Sucks, especially considering that their newest album was awesome, but I'm sure that they'll be able to find a replacement.

If they could find a crazy animal-like drummer for their music. It could add to the intensity and progress of this band. Warp Riders is a huge stride and I love all their albums, but they really brought it on this one. And new blood can make it that much better.

Aw! This guy wasn't only a good drummer but he also had a cool look. Oh well.. But yeah, the singer's awesome. He can't leave... He wrote all the songs for the first album before anyone else joined so isn't this his band?

It said a few days ago the UK tour was cancelled due to him being ill. Has he done a Steven Adler?

Looks like all further dates are cancelled for that matter. Shame, was looking forward to the London one.

I saw then play with Metallica a few weeks ago. Halfway through The Swords' set he took of his T-Shirt. He was fat.


Good drummer though.

Why do people delete my posts?
Very good, Buttnik. See what I did there?
Anyhow, my post was somewhere along the lines of "who is this band because I've never heard of them therefore they are not notable"

That really sucks :-(


On a side note, is all written text supposed to be underlined and centered, or is my computer just being weird with this site again?
