Rock singer/guitarist/songwriter Tim Montana drops his new song “Die Today” from his debut album, Savage.“I had the title ‘Die Today’ for several years and couldn’t figure out an angle to write it,” says Montana. “When I sat down to write for the album Savage, I started chasing this title again. Right away, my friend who was in Special Operations texted me. I knew right then that this song had to be about heroes who put their lives on the line to save strangers. This song is dedicated to the special operations community and any hero who puts their life on the line for others.”
