Trivett Wingo was the drummer and founding member of the American heavy metal band The Sword from 2003 until he departed in October 2010.
Five shows into the opening North American leg of the Warp Riders Tour, The Sword was forced to postpone all dates due to the departure of Trivett Wingo. Explaining his decision to leave, Wingo commented that he felt "physically and emotionally unable to continue on as part of [the band]", and later revealed that he had predicted he would eventually leave the band for "probably a couple of years", justifying his decision by explaining that "my level of anxiety pertaining to being on tour got to the point where medication was not the answer." Upon Wingo's departure from The Sword, the remaining members of the band released the following statement: "We wish Trivett nothing but the best, and it is with heavy hearts that we bid him farewell... We wish he could continue the adventure with us, but we understand that the life of a touring musician is not for everyone... The show must go on, though, and will be back on the road as soon as humanly possible."
For the later rescheduled tour dates, Austin-based drummer Kevin Fender was enlisted to perform.
