"We’re taking things as they come. Everything is happening until it’s not,” states Trivium bassist Paolo Gregoletto, asked about this year’s touring plans. With a new album, What The Dead Men Say, out as you read this, Trivium - Gregoletto plus Matt Heafy (vocals, guitar), Corey Beaulieu (guitar), and Alex Bent (drums) - should have had a major year for touring. 

For them as for so many other bands, 2020 looks likely to be the year that never happened, but he’s counting his blessings, as we all should.
