Below is our complete For Today news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
In a new interview with Altpress.com, For Today's Mattie Montgomery tackles issues ranging from sex trafficking, to the idea of Christian bands being segmented from secular ones, and even on to his thoughts on gay marriage after former member Mike Reynolds went on a Twitter tirade that put the band in a spotlight it didn't want. Check out excerpts from the interview below.
AP: This is your second album since leaving the overtly Christian-based Facedown Records. You've toured with a ton of bands outside of that realm, too.
There has been an effort by the powers that be in this music industry–media outlets, record labels, management companies–to divide bands into Christian and non-Christian groups, and I think that sucks. We've made it a point for years to go on tour with non-Christian bands.
For example, the guys in Stray From The Path, who are out on tour with us right now. They are some of the best friends we've ever had in a band. We've toured with those guys a bunch of times. I have [Christian] kids come up to me all the time asking, “How is it touring with bands like that?” I'm like: “It's fine! Who told you that I have to be afraid of bands who don't agree with me?” I don't know how people are getting it into their heads, but I feel like non-Christian kids feel like they're not welcome at a For Today show. Some Christian kids often come to For Today shows and are upset that there are non-Christian bands and people there. It's completely ridiculous. I don't know who drew a line in the sand and said you're only allowed to hang out with a certain type of people.
AP: Given how often you've expressed love toward so many people, it must've been very frustrating for you to suddenly be deemed homophobic or otherwise hateful in the aftermath of Reynolds’ tweets.
It was frustrating, to say the least. That whole thing blindsided me. And it was exasperated by preexisting issues. The fact that there are people who call themselves Christians but go on the news and picket soldiers' funerals and say stuff like “God Hates Fags?” These people totally dishonor God, and disrespect God and they dishonor and disrespect people who are made in God's image.More...

On October 29th at the storied War Memorial Auditorium in Nashville, TN, a rather unusual tour lineup shook things up a bit. Asking Alexandria rolled in, bringing All That Remains with them, along with the veterans of Sevendust, as well as the younger For Today and Emmure. If the lineup didn’t involve Sevendust or All That Remains, it would have made more sense. All That Remains wasn’t stretching it, really, but including Sevendust with this largely metalcore bunch? I scratched my head at that choice.
It was a bizarre experience. More...

I sadly arrived late for the show and missed all, but seven of the bands playing. Granted, I've never listened to the openers, since the majority of the bands were hardcore; a scene that I'm familiar with, but not a part of. This lead to an incredibly awkward experience, since I was immersing myself in a completely different culture.
After finishing up an upcoming interview with In This Moment, I entered the Congress Theater to watch Iwrestledabearonce. Having been chafed by Krysta Cameron's rabid parakeet screams when I saw the band play with The Dillinger Escape Plan, I was hoping that she may have improved as a vocalist during the past year on tour. Sadly, she's just as annoying as ever in a live setting, while the actual music remains unfocused, disjointed, and truly unfunny. Comedy metal can indeed work and Iwrestledabearonce should quit it with the funny sound effects and instead move on to having the humor come from their lyrics and stage presence. GWAR and Cannabis Corpse manage to be genuinely funny in an over-the-top way without annoying me because they don't bombard me with cheesy sound effects every ten seconds. It's a shame that Iwrestledabearonce still don’t comprehend taste and only make music for their own amusement instead of that of their highly annoyed audience.
In This Moment were up next and I have to say that ITM put on a great show. Maria's voice simply works better in a live setting than it does in the studio and it's a shame that they went from headlining to only playing five songs after only a few short months. Much like my experience with Warbringer and Job For a Cowboy, In This Moment won me over in the live arena. The fact that they put on such a great performance was sadly probably wasted on playing for a hardcore crowd who didn't appreciate their music, since much of the audience had left the venue during their set.
Next up was For Today, who I'd never listened to before, but managed to put on a good show despite being pretty generic modern hardcore. While the band doesn’t break any new ground or do much to stand out, they don't annoy me as much as most contemporary hardcore does. If I were more into the neo post-hardcore scene, I'd probably give the band a few more listens. Still, they're good for what they are and anyone into contemporary hardcore should give them a shot.
