FOR TODAY (USA)
Even in the face of seemingly “impossible” odds, there’s always a way to muster enough strength to soldier on and cross the finish line victoriously. That goes for all facets of life. If you’re willing to disregard the naysayers, forget the doubters, and defy the odds, you can accomplish anything. FOR TODAY reached a major milestone in 2012 when their fourth full-length album, »Immortal«, debuted on the Billboard Top 200 at #15 with 14,700 units sold in merely one week. In addition to appearing on the Van’s Warped Tour 2012 & Main Stage 2014. They’ve shared the stage with everyone from THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA and AUGUST BURNS RED to ASKING ALEXANDRIA and MOTIONLESS IN WHITE. The band has built an overwhelmingly supportive following since forming in 2005. They’ve logged over 1,000 shows on five continents and have cumulatively sold over 200,000 albums in North America to date. Critical endorsements have come from Revolver Magazine and Alternative Press. The band have graced the covers of Outburn, HM and Substream Magazine. The next chapter commences loudly with »Wake«.
“This is definitely the start of a new season for us,” concludes singer Mattie Montgomery. “»Wake« shows how far we’ve come. At the same time, it’s a good introduction to the band. You don’t have to be a Christian to enjoy a FOR TODAY show or buy an album. This is open to everyone. We’re all part of something very big together." FOR TODAY have joined the Nuclear Blast family worldwide to continue their mission with their new album »Wake«.
After having NOVELISTS founded in Paris in early 2013 by the Durand brothers, they quickly joined forces with the former A CALL TO SINCERITY
members Matt, Charly and Nicolas and released their first Single „Twenty Years“ already in April. Their fresh and distinguished sound was something
the metal world didn’t expect. But this was only the beginning. They released 5 more singles and numerous videos within the next 10 months, culminating in the release of their Demo EP. By that time, in early 2014, NOVELISTS’ name and music had spread around the globe like a wildfire catching both the fans’ and the industry’s interest.
While working with full force on the production of their first full length album, the demand for live shows was rising and lead NOVELISTS to play selective prestigious events like Euroblast Festival, Ghostfest, and Damage Fest, before they played all over Europe alongside I, THE BREATHER at
the end of 2014.
Empowered with this new live experience NOVELISTS finished the production of their debut Album in early 2015. It was time to raise the bar again and to increase the pressure even more. In March, the first single from the upcoming album „Gravity“ was released with a video, gathering over 100k plays in less than 3 weeks. NOVELISTS had become a rising star within the progressive metal scene, ready to release their highly anticipated first album „Souvenirs“. „Souvenirs“ was released via Arising Empire on the 13th of November 2015, right after a European tour with german band Annisokay.
