There For Tomorrow Announces Album DetailsHopeless — By HopelessMelissa on April 16, 2009
When Orlando-based band THERE FOR TOMORROW released their self-titled EP on Hopeless Records last year, no one was prepared for the momentum they generated. With EP sales approaching 20,000, tagged as one of Alternative Press’ enviable “100 Bands to Watch for 2009″, a major distinction of winning mtvU’s very prestigious “Breaking Woodie Award” for Best Emerging Artist, the cover of their hometown wine and celebrity tome Orlando Magazine, Alloy.com’s “Top Ten Albums To Be Psyched For in ‘09″and massive amounts of other applause and plaudits, this young rock band is ready to unleash their debut album A LITTLE FASTER on June 9, 2009. James Paul Wisner (Dashboard Confessional, UnderOATH, Paramore) and David Bendeth (Breaking Benjamin, All Time Low, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus) returning to producer’s chair.
For many folks, There for Tomorrow’s emergence into headlines and magazine covers may have seemed like they arose from the ether. In fact, however, the band had been together since their early teens, already building a formidable name for themselves on the live circuit with through tours with All Time Low, We the Kings, Cartel, among others as well as weeks on the Vans Warped Tour. With countless miles under their belt and a bastion of EPs and tracks on compilations like the recently released Punk Goes Pop 2 (covering Omarion’s “Ice Box”), the anticipation for the band’s debut has hit an all time high.
Harder, edgier without losing any of the melodic crunch for which they are known, A Little Faster thrusts There For Tomorrow up a few notches in their already infectious songwriting. From the slash and burn guitars of the title track to the tightly-wound “Backbone” to the soaring ballad “Just in Time”, it reinforces Billboard’s stance who called the band “a perfect mix of neo-rock, indie pop, and punk, the group demands attention” and AbsolutePunk’s claim that they are “a skilled band with mountains of potential.”
