Metalcore giants FOR 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.
They recently revealed the title and release date for their label debut. Wake will be released worldwide on October 2nd.
Casper spoke with Mattie about their beliefs and the new album.
Even in the face of seemingly “impossible” odds, there’s always a way to muster enough strength to soldier on and cross the finish line victoriously. That goes for all facets of life. If you’re willing to disregard the naysayers, forget the doubters, and defy the odds, you can accomplish anything. FOR TODAY reached a major milestone in 2012 when their fourth full-length album, Immortal, debuted on the Billboard Top 200 at #15 with 14,700 units sold in merely one week. In addition to appearing on the Van’s Warped Tour 2012 & Main Stage 2014. They’ve shared the stage with everyone from THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA and AUGUST BURNS RED to ASKING ALEXANDRIA and MOTIONLESS IN WHITE.
The band has built an overwhelmingly supportive following since forming in 2005. They’ve logged over 1,000 shows on five continents and have cumulatively sold over 200,000 albums in North America to date. Critical endorsements have come from Revolver Magazine and Alternative Press. The band have graced the covers of Outburn, HM and Substream Magazine. The next chapter commences loudly with Wake. “This is definitely the start of a new season for us,” concludes singer Mattie Montgomery. “Wake shows how far we’ve come. At the same time, it’s a good introduction to the band. You don’t have to be a Christian to enjoy a FOR TODAY show or buy an album. This is open to everyone. We’re all part of something very big together.” FOR TODAY have joined the Nuclear Blast family worldwide to continue their mission with their new album Wake.
