For Today, ‘Saul of Tarsus (The Messenger)’ – Video
Facedown Records' brawlers For Today have just unleashed the video for 'Saul of Tarsus (The Messenger),' from their latest album 'Portraits' -- not to be confused with Bury Tomorrow's upcoming release of the same name. For this video, For Today worked with Drew Russ and vocalist Mattie Montgomery said, "He was a ton of fun, and he really took our loose concept for a video and made it his own. I think our finished product is much better for having had him involved."
We love that Montgomery is a little classier than many of his peers, performing in a snazzy button down and vest and the clips of the band performing in a plastic-draped confines -- it looks like they were getting ready to paint -- have a really cool vibe. The song makes us want to mosh; there's more breakdowns here than at the mental institution in 'Shutter Island.' There's also mad crowd surfing, like this was filmed in 1995, yo!
