An Interest In History For Today
During their time in Cardiff, the American Christian metal band known as For Today enjoyed what the Welsh capital had to offer. There was an understanding of how the locals treasured their heritage in a predominant conduct and valued what they considered precious to a historical and personal degree.
Cardiff Castle being one of many fine examples, is not only situated directly in Cardiff town centre but is also steeped in a two thousand year old collection of historical facts and interesting tales which would be more than entertaining to any visitor.
When meeting Ryan Leitru, an air of humility was noticed which settled nerves and the on-going atmosphere, leading to a relaxed and entertaining interview with the modest guitarist.
In the back of their tour bus before his performance, we discussed how he had come to admire the rich heritage of not only Wales, but of other locations they had visited as well throughout the United Kingdom.
The necessary friendship needed to make a band work was touched upon as well as details of their upcoming end of April America tour, 'Bands vs Food' alongside Memphis May Fire, We Came As Romans and Miss May I and how the group went about creating what they consider to be the pinnacle of their studio creations, 'Wake'.
After we had concluded the interview, a few words of advice was issued to visit a few areas of interest (including St Fagans national history museum) when they made their return to the country, which were hopefully taken with a curious interest.
