TODAY IS THE DAY reigns as one of the most influential extreme bands of the past two decades. The band’s violent and anthemic style, which blends metal, noise, psychedelia, and rock, has received worldwide acclaim ever since the debut album, Supernova, was released in 1993. Ten studio albums have been released on such labels as Amphetamine Reptile, Relapse, and Southern Lord — including modern-day classics like Willpower, Temple Of The Morning Star, and In The Eyes Of God. The band’s lineup has included such musicians as Brann Dailor and Bill Kelliher, who would later go on to form Mastodon. TODAY IS THE DAY has toured the world with Motörhead, Helmet, The Melvins, Morbid Angel, Converge, Napalm Death, Neurosis, Eyehategod, Unsane, Coalesce, and many more. Steve Austin has made a name for himself as a producer, helping create seminal albums for Lamb Of God, Converge, Deadguy, among others, in addition to producing nearly all of TODAY IS THE DAY’s releases. Austin is featured in the Color Of Noise Documentary about Amphetamine Reptile Records, is the centerpiece of the intense documentary The Man Who Loves To Hurt Himself, which was screened at the International Filmmaker Festival of World Cinema in Nice, France, an offshoot of the world-famous Cannes Film Festival, has scored several independent films, and much more.
