Visionary metal outfit TODAY IS THE DAY has issued their newest official video hailing from the band’s tenth LP, Animal Mother, with an appropriately haunting and intense new visual depiction of the album’s opening title track. “Animal Mother” was directed and filmed by David Hall of Uneasy Sleeper, whose penetrating and captivating style has also been witnessed in several previously released videos from TODAY IS THE DAY, as well as with videos from the likes of Brutal Truth, Misery Index, and many others.

The current incarnation of the feral TODAY IS THE DAY sees founding frontman Steve Austin 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 – recorded at the cult leader’s own Austin Enterprises and released in the second half of 2014 through Southern Lord — taking to the road for long stateside runs with Lazer/Wulf, Abigail Williams, and their recent European tour with Grime.
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 – fronting Montreal-based psychedelic post-hardcore quintet, LAE, as witnessed on the band’s debut Break The Clasp, and launching UXO with Unsane’s Chris Spencer.
