Prevailer [edit]
by For Today | Genre: Hard Rock/Metal | Release Date: April 02, 2013
 

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. The story of Sioux City, IA hardcore and metal outfit For Today remains one of triumph. Breaking out of Iowa is hard enough. When you're playing heavy music with a Christian message, it's even harder. Still, the quintet—Mattie Montgomery [lead vocals], Ryan Leitru [lead guitar, vocals], Brandon Leitru [bass], Sam Penner [rhythm guitar], and David Puckett [drums, percussion]—consistently persevered, and it's all documented on their brand new DVD film and five-song EP, the appropriately titled, Prevailer [Razor & Tie].

In 2012, the group made a collective decision to encapsulate their journey in one cohesive piece. Prevailer pairs intense live footage in front of roaring crowds alongside intimate behind-the-scenes vignettes and honest, heartfelt interviews. In the process, the film paints a powerful portrait of the band's road thus far.

"We felt like we really had a story to tell," explains Montgomery. "In the beginning, everyone told us it'd be impossible to get this band off the ground. We were endlessly turned down by everybody you could think of—from labels to booking agents to promoters. We did things D.IY., and we didn't ever expect anything. We were never rich and famous in the first place, and playing music was never about that. We pursued our dream in spite of everything. We decided to make this DVD to show people who we are and give them a little bit of our history."
