“We don’t do this band because it’s fun or to become popular, we do it because we have to. This is all about sharing our beliefs and our devotion through our music. That’s one hundred % why this band exists.” says For Today frontman Mattie Montgomery.
That kind of conviction has served him and the band well. Formed in 2005, the Christian group from Sioux City, Iowa is one of the metalcore movement’s most popular acts. They have found a passionate audience with their blend of face-ripping vocals, tech-heavy guitar parts, towering choruses and fervent lyrics. Sure, other groups are trying to pull off a similar formula, but no one is doing it better than For Today.
Recently they announced a Farewell Tour after being a band for 11 years and will be sad to see them go.
You can catch them on there Farewell Tour with Wage War, Gideon and Rival Choir on there Final US Tour then after Fall Tour they head overseas then back to the US for there wrap up of the Farewell Tour.
After over 11 years as a band, 6 full length albums and 1 EP, we have decided to make 2016 the last year of For Today. When we started this band in 2005, we never imagined that our music would make it out of Sioux City, Iowa, let alone take us all around the world multiple times. Our lives have been hugely impacted by the time we’ve spent making music and touring. We met our wives, had kids and moved to different states because of For Today. It’s been an incredible experience, but we feel like now is the time to close this chapter of our lives and move on. There’s no behind the scenes drama happening or disagreements between band members. We’re all still best friends and will continue to be long after the band is over.
We want to thank everybody who has made this possible, especially the fans who have kept us going for so many years. That’s why we’re excited to announce that we’re doing an extensive farewell tour, hitting all our favorite cities in the country, as well as some international dates. Come hang out with us one last time and let’s make these last shows some that we’ll never forget!
