For Today Replaces Drummer
 
For Today drummer David Morrison has left the band in order to move to South America to do mission work. He has been replaced by David Puckett (ex-The Crimson Armada). Watch a video statement from Morrison in the replies. You can donate to his mission work here.

Not a fan of the band, but a totally admirable thing to do.

Pretty big loss, he was really good.

He was a great drummer. You don't see this happen everyday.

Bring on the hate, but this is an admirable thing to do. Good for David. God bless.

Also, no offense, but I'm hoping Puckett has a little more stage presence and actually gets into it. Great drummer, don't get me wrong, but this guy looked like he was falling asleep behind the kit every time I've seen For Today.

Absolutely terrifying that people think this way in 2012.

Props for doing what he's being led to do--it'll be interesting to see how the new drummer is.

Good for him to do that. I would never in a million years go down there for mission work.

It's terrifying that he feels compelled by faith to go do volunteer missionary work in South America?

Nothing but respect for this guy. However, I would have waited until after Warped to leave the band.

Really good dude. I remember them when they were first getting started. The kid worked extremely hard to get them where they are.

Wishing him the best on his mission work!
