Immortal, produced by Will Putney (Lamb Of God, Suicide Silence) features 11 new tracks and includes special guest appearances from Sonny Sandoval of P.O.D., Jake Luhrs of August Burns Red and Tommy Green of Sleeping Giant. The album was released to major critical acclaim with Outburn Magazine calling it “A formidable return” and Revolver Magazine declaring it to be “Rife with crafty guitar hooks and scream-along choruses.” Alternative Press also commented, “For Today have dialed back the bombast just enough to make their pounding combination of furious punk and vicious metal sound more immediate and live sounding.”
For Today’s new studio album Immortal crashed onto the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart debuting at #15 and #3 on the Independent Chart with over 14,700 albums sold in its first week out. The album also landed on a number of other Billboard charts including: #1 on the Hard Music Chart, #1 on the Christian Current/Contemporary Chart, #1 on the Top Christian/Gospel Chart and #7 on the Rock Music Chart. Immortal has sold close to 27,000 records to date, and remains at #69 on the Hard Music Chart and #155 on the Independent Chart.
