Guitarist/vocalist Matt Heafy of the Orlando, Florida metal sensations TRIVIUM has posted the following message on the group's official web site:
"The [North American] tour [with CHILDREN OF BODOM and AMON AMARTH] has been outstanding. This is by far the best American tour yet. The reactions are insane, the crowds fantastic, the bands we're touring with [are] amazing.
"It's great to be on tour with BODOM, they've been one of my personal favorites for years, their musicianship is superb.
"Shit is exploding back here at home and we can't wait to see what it's gonna be like with IN FLAMES.
"Thanks to you all for your amazing support — we all really appreciate it."
