SuperNova Records presents brand new vinyl reissues of TODAY IS THE DAY’s seminal LPs Supernova and Today Is The Day, confirming them for release in early February.
Following the release of their acclaimed No Good To Anyone LP, released through BMG in February of 2020, TODAY IS THE DAY founder Steve Austin used the downtime of the COVID-19 lockdowns to secure the rights to every one of the band’s albums, relaunching his SuperNova Records label. With the entire catalog now under one roof, the label reissued the band’s entire back-catalog digitally and began rolling out additional TODAY IS THE DAY recordings, rare gems, previously unreleased material, and more, and began repressing the catalog in updated physical incarnations, leading with last year’s reissue of the seminal 1994 album Willpower.
2024 will see the label stepping this mission up in a major way, beginning with reissues of the band’s debut LP, Supernova, and third album Today Is The Day, originally released through Amphetamine Reptile Records, in 1993 and 1996, respectively. Along with Willpower, which was released between these two albums, TODAY IS THE DAY forged an entirely new style of psychedelia-soaked noise rock/experimental metal that would solidify the band’s foundation as an undeniable force in the underground music scene, and this AmRep triad remains some of the band’s most seminal and influential material now three decades later.
Meticulously remastered by founder Steve Austin for vinyl from the original analog recordings, these new reissues represent the most accurate depiction of the records as originally intended by the band. The artwork has been recreated with great efforts made in keeping true to the original releases. Supernova will be pressed on Multi-Color Splattered Vinyl and Today Is The Day will be pressed on Ghostly Black Ice Vinyl, emulating the cover art of each. Both records will be reissued in runs of 500 copies alongside new shirt designs.
Steve Austin reveals, “2024 is finally going to be upon us and I am psyched that we have a lot of killer music coming out that I’ve been working on throughout 2023. We start the year off with the long-awaited vinyl reissues of TODAY IS THE DAY’s first album, Supernova, and third album, Today Is The Day LP. Every detail of these two releases we tried to update, down to the clarity of the graphics and sonic refinements, while staying true to the old-school original AmRep releases. Each record’s corresponding shirt will be available as well. It was wild getting these together. I wanted to make sure they sounded the very best and looked awesome!”
“I’m happy to announce that we have also brought on Chris X of Reptilian Records as a label manager. Chris has been a good friend for many years going back to the old AmRep days and I couldn’t be happier having him working with us. We will now be in full swing of being able to get these reissues coming out at a steady pace going forward with Chris as a part of the team. So, expect to see more reissues of the TODAY IS THE DAY catalog coming out throughout the year and going forward until we have reissued them all!”
