FOR TODAY are Breaking Up + Farewell Tour Announced

After eleven years and six albums, For Today announced that they’ll be disbanding at the end of 2016.

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 relocated 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.

The band will be embarking on a farewell tour that’ll span from September through December. They’ll be crossing the States on two separate legs, plus a handful of shows in South America.

One final thought. We did an interesting interview with frontman Mattie Montgomery in 2012. He talked about the early days of the band and tells some incredible tour stories. He starts off telling about his first-ever show ever with the band:
