After a series of seriously anti-gay tweets and the subsequent backlash from a large part of the music/internet community For Today guitarist Mike Reynolds has apparently decided he’s better suited for bible college and a mission in the Middle East (I don’t think that means he’ll be flying drones).
The band posted this message regarding Reynolds’ departure and his new replacement:
“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.
