For Today guitarist Mike Reynolds leaves band
In what comes as no great surprise, For Today is in full damage control mode following divisive comments made by guitarist Mike Reynolds regarding homosexuality. For starters, Reynolds is no longer a member of the band and has been replaced by Sam Penner (In The Midst Of Lions). Additionally, frontman Mattie Montgomery has issued a public apology (via video), in which he even provides his phone number. Here's the official word:
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. Frontman Mattie Montgomery has also released a public statement to anyone affected by Mike's recent comments regarding homosexuality. The video can be viewed here:
