1. First off, how was the headlining tour?
It was an absolutely blast! We’d actually been friends with all the bands
on the tour before it even started, so it was a great run with some great
2. Any crazy stories that happened on tour?
Well, we got about $200,000 of gear stolen from us (our van, trailer,
lighting rig, amps, instruments, merch, and everything else we own).
That’s just about as crazy as it gets! And then, that night, we headlined
the House of Blues in Houston for 1300 kids, on borrowed gear, with no
lights or backdrops, and had one of the most incredible shows we’ve
ever played! It was incredible.
3. How excited are you guys to tour with The Devil Wears Prada & As I Lay Dying?
Absolutely. Both of those bands are incredible. It’s an honor to have the opportunity to be a part of the tour.
4. Can you tell us a little more about the ‘Prevailer EP/ DVD’?
Well, musically, I think it’s the most solid material we’ve ever released. Any one of these songs, had they been on
another For Today album, would have been a single. I think it’s the heavies material we’ve ever released, but also the
most well-structured and musically dynamic. I’m VERY excited to see what the world thinks about it!
5. What will fans get to see in the ‘DVD’ part of the album?
Simply: Us. I think many of our fans see us up on stage, shredding, and jumping around, and assume that, that’s how
we are all the time. But, in reality, we’re all very laid back. The DVD gives people the opportunity to sort of come on
the road with us, and see us in our every-day life, goofing off and just road-tripping around the world, having a blast with
our best friends.
6. How did you guys come up with the song “Crown Of Thorns”? (Great song btw)
Thanks! With the lyrics in each (new) song on the album, we wanted to portray a picture of Jesus from a different
perspective. In the song “Crown of Thorns,” we were focused on presenting Christ as a “suffering servant”—one that
poured His life out for others; who laid Himself down so that we could live. We wanted to make people see Him as He
described Himself; that being, as one that “Came not to be served, but to serve.”
7. You guys have been giving fans a chance to take pictures of you from the photo pit, how did this idea come
Well, simply put, we love fan interaction! We know that there are a lot of photographers out there—some more
established than others—and we wanted to give them all a shot (no pun intended) to come out and get some cool
photos from our tour! We definitely have not regretted it! :)
8. Any news/ shout outs you want to give to your fans?
No news at this point. But, stay tuned! There are some VERY BIG THINGS in the works right now. We love you all,
and hope to see you soon!
