‘For Today’ to Release New Album “Wake” In October, Tour Announced with ‘Fit For A King’, ‘Gideon’ Etc.


fortodayband2015For Today are back, with a swirl of activity surrounding the band. Last month, they announced that they had signed with Nuclear Blast for the worldwide release of their next album. “Wake” will be released worldwide on October 2. More information about “Wake” will make itself known in the coming days and weeks. But for now, get a taste of what to be expect by checking out the album teaser below. It builds from a piano melody to an explosive crescendo.

Also newly revealed by the band is the official announcement for their previously rumored tour with Fit For A King, Gideon, Silent Planet & Phinehas:

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

For Today‘s last album, “Fight The Silence”, came out in 2014 via Razor & Tie. The Will Putney-produced effort was the band’s fifth full-length overall and follow-up to 2012’s “Immortal” and 2013’s “Prevailer” EP.
