Trivium Frontman Checks in from Hurricane Irma
With the wrath of Hurricane Irma bearing down on Florida as we speak, millions of residents took extreme measures to prepare over the weekend. Amongst those: Trivium frontman/guitarist Matt Heafy, who lives in the city best known for Disney World and the murder of an unarmed, infamously hooded teenager.
Heafy posted a series of updates to Instagram over the past several days and seems to have been spared the worst. This morning’s post reports that he lost power and it’s “rainy/windy as the apocalypse,” but aside from some small leaks in the house and debris splayed all about his lawn and street, “we good.” Heafy had his house all boarded up to prepare for the storm, and looks like he treated himself to one very delicious dinner out the night before Irma rolled in.
We’re glad he (and presumably his bandmates) are doing alright. Here are a few of his Irma-related posts:
#Repost @metalandhoney (@get_repost) ・・・ It's been a long time since we rode out a hurricane. And never this bad as an adult. Trying to remain calm, but it's tough. We are safe in our home, but the anxiety of the noise can be overwhelming. Thank you all for the well wishes. We will be okay, just have to remain calm and keep The Office on the iPad (our happy place). #irmageddon
