There for Tomorrow is a rock band formed in Orlando, Florida in 2003. The group is influenced by bands such as Jimmy Eat World, Blink-182, Third Eye Blind, and The Hives. This is their third studio album called “The Verge”.
I saw There For Tomorrow for the first time as they toured with Silverstein. I was immediately impressed and in love. So I just had to get “A Little Faster” right away. I kept listening to it over and over again, loving it from the very first second.
With this album it was different. I was anxiously awaiting the release of the new album, and here it was. Proudly holding it in hands, curious what it would sound like. And – well, honestly, it took me a couple times listening through it until I fell for it. Which is not necessarily a bad thing. In this case at least it isn’t. It only means this album is different from “A Little Faster” and that is good. The band has grown. “A Little Faster” was easy to listen to and all songs were catchy and got stuck in your head in a mainstream way. The lyrics were great and thoughtful, and so are they on this album. Just the melodies and rhythms are not that easy to fall for. Honestly, the first time through I was even a little bit disappointed of “The Verge” but I gave it another chance. Luckily. This album grows on you. With every time listening to it. It is like a flower that slowly blooms in the sun. Simply brilliant. After a while this album gets just as catchy as the previous, just not at first sight – or rather first listen. From being mainstream There For Tomorrow moved over to the verge of mainstream, hiding the obvious: That they are simply brilliant. And so is this album. So if you listened to it once and didn’t really like it, give it another try. Maybe the album will reveal its true beauty to you as well. The cover is plain and doesn’t say a whole lot except for the album title. Twelve tracks are on it, to be explored by the listener. The lyrics are amazing and can be found in the booklet. Personally, I love this album, even though it took me a few times. But now it grew on me and will stay. That is for sure. I hope There For Tomorrow will come back to Europe some day soon to present their new stuff. Until then we have to live with “The Verge”. So if you like good rock music that has a soul and heart, get “The Verve” by There For Tomorrow.
