A Christian metalcore band from Sioux City, Iowa, For Today released their first album, Ekklesia, in 2008. Signed to Facedown Records, the group -- formed in 2005 and made up of Mattie (vocals), Ryan (guitar), Mike (guitar), Brandon (bass), and David (drums) -- spent the lion's share of their first couple of years together paying their dues on the live circuit. With an album to promote in 2008, the band had a long year of touring and gigs planned. After their debut, For Today continued to be productive, releasing their follow-up, Portraits, in 2008.
The third For Today album, 2010's Breaker, became the band's first to reach the overall album charts, and 2012's Immortal, their debut on Razor & Tie, did even better, breaking into the Top 20. Matty Mullins of Memphis May Fire guested on their fifth album, 2014's Fight the Silence. ~ Chris True, Rovi
