For Today release new single

Posted by on October 24, 2013

While For Today won’t have a new album coming out until sometime next year, they’ve recorded a one-off single, “Fight the Silence.” While they’re a proud Christian band, the new song instead takes on the issue of human slavery, and the band have teamed up with an organization, the A 21 campaign, to help prevent human trafficking. Here’s what the band had to say about it.

“One of the most devastating issues facing our modern global culture is the issue of human trafficking. No person, of any race, religion, nationality, or economic standing should ever have to live in forced subjection to another. There are over 27 MILLION people in slavery worldwide today (this is more than at any other time in human history), and yet, in the grand scheme of things, there is very little being done politically to bring this tragedy to an end.

So, in light of this heinous injustice, For Today has teamed up with the A21 Campaign to help shine a light on the issue, and raise funds to continue the global effort to rescue and rehabilitate those who have been victimized, as well as to oppose and prosecute those who are responsible for the buying and selling of other human beings.”

There is a global network of sick, selfish people preying on the desperation of the broken and impoverished. Let’s stand up and let our voices be heard for the sake of these voiceless captives. It’s time we stand up, speak out, and Fight the Silence.”

This single, produced by Will Putney at The Machine Shop, is the first For Today music without guitarist Mike Reynolds, who quit the band following a series of anti-gay tweets.
