‘For Today’ Release ‘Bitter Roots’ Music Video, “Wake” Album Out Now


fortodayband2015For Today, the metalcore band from Sioux City, Iowa, have released a video for ‘Bitter Roots’, a track from their new album “Wake” which is released yesterday (Oct. 2) via Nuclear Blast. The effort is available on CD as well as on vinyl (black, red) and as digital download. The video for ‘Bitter Roots’ can be seen below.

Commented singer Mattie Montgomery: “Our new song ‘Bitter Roots’ is a dramatic departure from much of what For Today has been known for. We decided to break the mold and simply write what was inside us, without worrying about fitting in a particular genre box. While it’s very different, we love the song, and we’re so excited to share it with the world.”

As previously reported is the official announcement for their previously rumored tour with Fit For A King, Gideon, Silent Planet & Phinehas: Dates and locations are listed below.

The story of For Today remains one of triumph. Breaking out of Iowa is hard enough. When you’re playing heavy music with a Christian message, it’s even harder. Still, the quintet — Mattie Montgomery (lead vocals), Ryan Leitru (lead guitar, vocals), Brandon Leitru (bass), Sam Penner (rhythm guitar), and David Puckett (drums, percussion) — consistently perseveres.
