Bible-thumping band of metalcore bros FOR TODAY have turned their hand to smashing weapon and drug syndicates in their spare time, with the band assisting police to arrest several people responsible for the theft of their trailer, and also reportedly the operators of a neighbourhood drug ring.
In the recent interview with Revolver, frontman Mattie Montgomery revealed how the events unfolded in San Antonio, Texas.
”We were on tour and our trailer with all our gear was stolen. Eventually a kid sent us an email saying, ‘Hey, if I know where you stuff is can you give me a reward?’ We were thinking, ‘How about the reward is just not being a douche?’ But anyway, our manager gets in touch with the kid and he tells us he saw his dad and his uncle unloading all this gear from the back of a trailer into a storage shed behind his house. He gives us the address, we give it to the police. A few days later, a few of the guys in the band wind up staking out the house, and all of a sudden there’s a bunch of cop cars, a SWAT team, a helicopter hovering above. They raided the house and found a bunch of weapons and bricks of cocaine. We got maybe a third of our gear back. Afterward the police told us they had been trying to get into the neighborhood to crack this drug ring for a long time. They said, ‘We weren’t able to do it until you guys came and broke the whole thing open.’ So I don’t know that we took down a cartel… but I do know we at least messed it up.”
It’s good to see the band counteracting their auditory atrocities with the Lord’s work, although the most fascinating detail to come out of the story is the fact the kid who initially passed on information to the band totally narced on his own Dad. Fuck you, Dad.
