For Today is streaming their newest single, “Fight the Silence.” The “silence” is the unspoken voice of those trapped in the human trafficking cycle. The single, which debuted on their YouTube page, quotes vocalist Mattie Montgomery about the song.

For Today – “Fight The Silence.” New album available 2014. Catch the band on the From Death to Destiny Tour with Asking Alexandria, Sevendust, All That Remains and Emmure.

One of the most devastating issues facing our modern global culture is the issue of human trafficking. … 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 … 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.

If you want to help, For Today has asked that people reach out to the A21 Campaign.

For Today will have a new album out in 2014 and are currently on tour with From Death to Destiny Tour with Asking Alexandria, Sevendust, All That Remains and Emmure.
