A couple of years ago, we caught For Today opening up for The Devil Wears Prada. But this past weekend, For Today had a sold-out show of their own at the Gramercy Theater in New York City. Support included stellar sets by Like Moths to Flames, Stray From the Path, The Plot in You and Fit for a King.

For Today guitarist Mike Reynolds stirred up quite a bit of controversy responding on Twitter about the decision of President Barack Obama choosing Rev. Louie Giglio to deliver the benediction at his inauguration. Giglio's past anti-gay messages resulted in pressure from the LGBT community, and the Reverend has since bowed out of the opportunity. Reynolds' commentary turned into his own views on homosexuality and religion and sparked quite a bit of outrage.
