UPDATED (12/12):

We found out last night that director/producer Daniel Davison (who has done videos this year for August Burns Red and Norma Jean) did this brutal video for For Today.

Davison talked exclusively to HM bout working with the band on this video and the challenges he and the band faced:

I had a great time working with For Today on the video for “Fight the Silence.” It was my first time directing a video for them. We just happened to shoot the video on the (then) coldest day of the year in Philadelphia (laughs).

It was a bit of a challenge to tell the simple, yet brutal, true stories of several human trafficking victims … and not have it be cheesy or not fit the vibe of the music.  In the end, I think it came together, and I am happy with how it turned out. I feel the concept has the energy it needs, yet still gets the message across. I really respect the guys in the band for using their music as a means to raise awareness for this horrible crime.

Having released the single earlier, today, For Today releases the official video for “Fight the Silence,” the titular track from their upcoming album. Enjoy!

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.
