God-loving metalheads For Today have recently gotten a lot of publicity when their guitarist, Mike Reynolds, made some homophobic comments on Twitter. Mike Reynolds has since called it quits. The band released the following statement on their Facebook page:
“Mike Reynolds is no longer a part of For Today. He has decided that now is the time for he and his wife to put their plans in motion to enroll in bible college, and to begin working toward full-time missions work in the Middle East. Mike will be replaced by long-timefriend of the band, and former In The Midst of Lions guitar player, Sam Penner, who will be appearing with the band as they headline their upcoming Fight The Silence tour.”
Their vocalist, Mattie Montgomery, has since issued a formal apology to fans or anyone negatively effected by the comments made by Mike Reynolds.
