FOR TODAY Drummer Quits Band To Become A Missionary

Drummer David Morrison has announced his departure from the Christian metalcore band FOR TODAY. Morrison will be moving to South America in September to do mission work in Ecuador through Extreme Nazarene. His replacement in FOR TODAY will be David Puckett, formerly of the band THE CRIMSON ARMADA

A videotaped message from Morrison can be seen below.

David has also released the following statement: "[FOR TODAY] will not be missing any shows and have a replacement drummer that may end up being permanent. David Puckett will be the drummer for the band on Warped Tour and through the fall, if all works out. I haven't seen the band with Puckett yet, but he's a great man of God and an incredible drummer and I'll be at a couple of the Warped Tour dates. Thank you guys for everything! This has been the best seven-plus years of my life! To God be the glory."

Added FOR TODAY vocalist Mattie Montgomery: "David will always be a part of our family. While he will be missed greatly, we fully support him in where he is going next, and we're excited about this next season for all of us."
