For Today to disband following farewell tour

For Today have announced that they will be breaking up, albeit amicably. The group issued the following collective statement:

“After over 11 years as a band, six full-length albums and one 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 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.

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!”

A lengthy farewell tour has been booked and will kick off in September, confirmed dates follow. A European leg that will run from October 26th to November 1st is still in the works. VIP pre-sale for North American dates are now available on Soundrink.
