Former For Today vocalist Mattie Montgomery's old band Besieged is celebrating the 10-year anniversary of their sole full-length album, Atlantis, with the release of a remastered track from the LP, “INRI.” Check it out below.
Before Montgomery gained underground renown as the inspirational frontman of For Today, who hung up their spurs last year, the musician performed vocals for the Michigan-based Besieged in 2007. Besieged themselves initially formed in 2004, going on hiatus in 2010.
Atlantis was released by Blood & Ink Records on June 26, 2007—exactly ten years ago. The new version of album cut “INRI” has been remastered by the band's drummer, Josh Schroeder, who's produced records for A Plea For Purging, For The Fallen Dreams and others.
Asked about his one-album stint with Besieged, Montgomery rejects any notion of embarrassment regarding the work, as artists are wont to admit when assessing their earlier material.
“[I'm] totally not embarrassed about this,” says Montgomery. “This album is so much better than the first For Today album. The second too, honestly. [Laughs.]”
Original copies of Besieged's Atlantis CD are available for purchase at Blood & Ink's online store here.
