Facedown Records has announced the signing of Sioux City, Iowa band FOR TODAY. The group's debut full-length, "Ekklesia", produced by Jamie King (BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, THE HUMAN ABSTRACT), is scheduled for release on April 1.

Says drummer David Morrison of the signing: "We couldn't be happier to have signed with Facedown Records! It's been a long battle but God has finally put us where we are supposed to be at the right time!"

Check out two new FOR TODAY songs — "Words of Hope" and "Infantry" — on the band's MySpace page.

You can catch the band on tour now right up to their date on the 10th annual Facedown Fest and beyond. Tour dates are below with many more dates coming soon. "You can expect to see us on the road all over America in 2008 so get ready!"

For two years, FOR TODAY have clawed and scraped their way into the spotlight. Seldom is there to be found a band whose passion and integrity are a matched by their technicality and musical merit. As forthcoming about their faith as they are about their musical prowess, vocalist Mattie Montgomery sums up the band's mission: "This has nothing to do with music and everything to do with our faith in Christ." But music is a catalyst and FOR TODAY uses their AUGUST BURNS RED-meets-BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME sound to spread their message across the nation.
