We regret to report that Brent Young, former bassist of Trivium, has tragically passed away at the age of 37.

The news was confirmed by Trivium frontman Matt Heafy on social media, which you can read below.

“We have just been given word on the passing of one of the early members of Trivium, Brent Young.

Having had a couple wonderful years with Brent in the Florida local band scene, doing the Blue demo and ETI together, the very first European mini-tour and first USA tour together – I have nothing but amazing memories of a wonderful person.

Our hearts and condolences go out to all of Brent’s family and friends.”

Current Trivium bassist Paolo Gregoletto also shared his condolences on social media.

“I met Brent a few times in the past, so I didn’t know him to well. But I have played a lot of songs he recorded on Ember to Inferno live and he was a big part of the early years of the band. I want to send my deepest condolences to his friends and family.”

Young was a member of Trivium from 2001 up until 2004, and featured on the band’s debut album, ‘Ember To Inferno’. Prior to this, he performed on their ‘Caeruleus’ EP (also known as ‘The Blue Demo’).

In 2017, along with former Trivium drummer Travis Smith, Young formed hard rock/metal band Blacknova.

We here at DEAD PRESS! offer our deepest condolences to Brent Young‘s family, friends, and loved ones at this very difficult time.
