Francesco Artusato Talks Light The Torch With Ghost Cult


Over the summer we caught Light The Torch at Saint Vitus Bar in Brooklyn, where they played a crushing sold-out show. Before the band hit the stage we caught up with shredder Francesco Artusato about a great many topics. LTT is also comprised of Howard Jones (ex-Killswitch Engage), Ryan Wombacher on bass, and Extinction A.D. drummer Mike “Scuzz” Sciulara. Francesco chatted about the bands’ new lease on life since changing their name from Devil You Know, their most recent album Revival (Nuclear Blast), how he keeps his chops up before and during a tour, and their upcoming tour with Trivium and Avatar. Interview by Keefy and videography and photos by Omar Cordy of OJC Photography.
