with All Time Low, Hit the Lights, Valencia
Late July with Cartel
ORLANDO, FL -- Rock has always been the voice of the youth and there's no better place to hear what the youth have to say than on Hopeless Records' newest signings, THERE FOR TOMORROW (TFT). With a median age of 19 and more energetic creativity than most current bands, TFT captures an exuberance and freshness that's been absent in most music today. Produced by James Paul Wisner (Paramore, Dashboard Confessional, Underoath), their self-titled EP will be released on August 5, 2008. The band hit the road with All Time Low, Hit the Lights, Valencia and Cartel this July.
With songs that embrace big, epic choruses and chunky guitars, like the melodic singalong "Remember When", the biting "Addiction And Her Name", and swirling guitars of "No More Room to Breathe", this EP portrays a band at the brink of something huge. "Our sound has been evolving since day one," says vocalist/guitarist/programming wiz Maika Maile who co-founded TFT in 2003. "but with these new songs, I feel like we’ve grown as people as well as musicians. Lyrically and musically, these songs are straight-up, honest, and filled with everything we had to give."
Layered and thickly produced by Wisner, the EP merely hints at the fact that, while they may be young, their sound has been honed on the live circuit, not in their bedrooms. Already live veterans from an extensive East Coast tour, huge outdoor radio events, and two regional runs on The Vans Warped Tour, TFT have road-tested their material and played it for fans before committing it to vinyl. "Our songs are pretty personal," says guitarist/vocalist Christian Climer, "and when you write that way, you want to be able to make that sort of bigger connection with people when you get back to the studio."
"Last call for the ground floor on them is almost here… They play some of the most finely sheened pop this side of Epcot"

"[TFT's music] aids in the never-ending search for ‘roll your window down’ tunes.”
Before they hit the road this Summer, the band will be wrapping up their video for their first single "No Room to Breathe" and behind-the-scenes pics of the video shoot have been posted on PureVolume. The single has also been just released to stream on their MySpace page on Monday, June 9th. Currently the #1 Artist on PureVolume, TFT are already on a great start. "We want people to have fun when they listen to us, but it's also important to have a deeper, hopeful foundation behind what we do," Maika concludes. "It's a big scary world out there, but if we stay in this together, we're all gonna be ok."
You can catch the band on tour later this summer with All Time Low, Hit The Lights, Valencia, and Cartel (dates below). There For Tomorror EP will be released digitally on July 1, 2008 and the physical copy will be released to retail outlets on August 5, 2008 on Hopeless Records.
