Seeking focus for their aggression, For Today look to raise awareness about the horrors of human trafficking on Fight the Silence. While the album is as heavy as anything they've done, having a cause to rally behind really works for the band, providing a direction for their bull-in-a-china-shop outrage to stampede in. As a Christian band, there's always been a message to their music, but with its more socially aware agenda, it feels as though For Today have reached a new level, making Fight the Silence a good jumping-on point for anyone who might have been previously put off by the band's religious leanings.
