For Today, one of my favorite bands, broke the news that they are calling it quits on this chapter of their lives. From the time of the band’s launch in Sioux City, Iowa, in 2005, through 6 full-length albums, 1 EP, and just over a decade of making music, they have decided that it’s time they move on. Below is an excerpt of the official announcement from the band.
“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,” the band said in a joint statement. “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.”
The farewell tour launches Sept. 14 in Iowa City, Iowa. The band has announced two legs of North American dates, along with a run of South American gigs. European gigs are being planned for Oct. 26 to Nov. 1.
