For Today have released their much anticipated video for “Seraphim” from the album Breaker. Directed by Drew Russ and shot in the woods south of Orlando, FL, the actual filming of the video turned into an 18 hour work day. Russ says, “I wanted to do something unique for For Today without losing the intensity of the song. Along with being a high-energy song, “Seraphim” also has a very epic feel. I wanted to push for production that conveyed the grand nature of the lyrics.”
And that’s just what Russ did. The costumes and props were all created by hand with some pieces taking a full month to fabricate. The masks on the four beasts were all hand crafted from molded leather and Russ himself built the altar and rigged the pyro effects.

For Today wrapped up a stint in Japan and then flew over to Australia where they are just finishing up a two week tour. They will soon be heading back the states where they’ll kick off their US headlining tour with a stop at Facedown Fest, and end with an appearance at Bamboozle.

Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin.

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
