TODAY IS THE DAY has crossed the Atlantic to begin a month-long tour of Europe, beginning tomorrow, Saturday, November 21st, with support for the entire trek to be provided by Italian sludge savages, Grime.
The feral experimental metal trio TODAY IS THE DAY sees founding frontman Steve Austin currently flanked by bassist Trevor Thomas and drummer Douglas Andrae. The band has been touring relentlessly since the release of their tenth studio full-length Animal Mother — released last year on Southern Lord — taking to the road for long stints with Lazer/Wulf and Abigail Williams, and their upcoming European tour will showcase them at their gnarled, refined best.
On their way out of the country, Austin announced, “Our European tour starts this Saturday in Brussels. The tour is of course still on and we are not cancelling. We are going to go about our lives as we normally do and play music for our fans and friends in Europe, not afraid. I hope to see you there! We are with you Europe! Let it rip, light it up!”
TODAY IS THE DAY’s video for “Heathen” is playing RIGHT HERE and their “Masada” video HERE.
Steve Austin has also been occupied recently with scoring the soundtrack to Addiction: A 60’s Love Story, a vice-soaked feature length directed by Tate Steinseck — the trailer playing at Entertainment Tonight HERE — and fronting Montreal-based psychedelic post-hardcore quintet, LAE, as witnessed on the band’s debut 2xLP Break The Clasp.
