Steve Austin of Today Is The Day has released all 13 of the pioneering outsider band’s major recorded statements onto streaming platforms via SuperNova Records. All the way back to How To Win Friends And Influence People!

SuperNova Records was most prevalent in the late 1990s and early 2000s, releasing a wide array of independent underground rock and metal artists. The label has been ramped up over recent months and now emerges in full-time capacity, uniting TODAY IS THE DAY’s vast catalog under the artist’s control.

SuperNova now presents TODAY IS THE DAY’s LPs initially released through Amphetamine Reptile Records, Relapse Records, Blackmarket Activities, Southern Lord Recordings, The End Records, and BMG across all digital providers through the label’s deal with The Orchard/Sony, including the How To Win Friends And Influence People, Supernova, Willpower, Today Is The Day, Temple Of The Morning Star, In The Eyes of God, Live Till You Die, Sadness Will Prevail, Kiss The Pig, Axis Of Eden, Pain Is A Warning, Animal Mother, and No Good To Anyone LPs.

 

Austin has painstakingly organized and optimized all the original TODAY IS THE DAY music and art masters 100% true to their original release; a dedication in sound and art to bring the original experiences that were had throughout the years to both long time listeners and new fans. With only overall volume levels being adjusted through mastering to current modern times standards, the craftsmanship that made these groundbreaking releases what they were is being preserved, so that the listener can experience the vast catalog without any alteration or deviance from the original powerful music and message.

I always prefer artist friendly Bandcamp, so here is that link.

TODAY IS THE DAY will release a new album through SuperNova in 2022 as well, with many other new projects already in the works, including records from new label signings GRIDFAILURE and WOORMS, among others.

I have been listening to Pain Is A Warning throughout the day today and I marveled at how the TITD discography all works so seamlessly together regardless of what twists and turns the band took over the years (and what supporting characters were playing alongside Steve). The mellow “This Is You” is getting me through this sweltering Summer evening and putting me in a contemplative mode.

Hails to Steve. More consistent album to album than fucking Black Sabbath! (Speaking of which, the best ever cover of “Sabbath Bloody Sabbath” is still a secret closer track on Temple Of The Morning Star, fear not). Much respect for showing that year after year through blood, sweat and tears you can live a life for the underground.

As someone who feels like Sadness Will Prevail will still be ahead of the curve 100 years from now (only “PASAQALIA” by Liturgy sounds remotely akin to some of it, in my frame of reference), I am super stoked to help spread the word on some huge TODAY IS THE DAY news. Founder Steve Austin has control over and reissued his Entire Fucking Back Catalog!!! through SuperNova Records. New Material Plus Albums From GRIDFAILURE And WOORMS is also confirmed! Steve will reissue each classic TITD title across all digital platforms and in physical formats, including Bandcamp where the entire catalog is now currently playing. Time for some “Bee’s Wax and Star Wars”, baby.

TODAY IS THE DAY’s entire catalog is now streaming and available for discounted preorder at the new SuperNova Records Bandcamp RIGHT HERE.
Every record will also be issued through all digital providers July 16th. See a brief teaser and more at the new label website RIGHT HERE.

Steve wrote: Oh Man! I’m so happy that this day has finally come. I’ve had to be quiet to save the surprise. Over the last months, I’ve been working on starting SuperNova and getting all of the original Analog Masters together for Today Is The Day. It took a while, but now the entire catalog is presented in it’s most natural, and awesome sounding state. I re-mastered: Supernova, Willpower, Self-Titled, Sadness Will Prevail, Kiss The Pig, Live Till You Die, and Axis of Eden. All of the originals were run through 1970’s Neve’s and state of the art Apogee Symphony MkII SE Mastering Convertors. I’m truly happy with the sound of every single record. I can’t wait for you to hear these definitive versions of the TITD rock! You guys inspire me and I’m hoping that our new label will not only deliver the power rock TITD jams to you, but also New Jams, by Amazing Bands like Woorms and Gridfailure. I wanna pay respects to my heroes, Tom Hazelmyer and Jello Biafra, AMRep, Touch N GO, Earache, and Sub Pop with this new label. New Music!!!! Anyways, I thank everyone on here for being true TITD and I look forward to all the fun we are gonna have!!!!

I’ve been a fan of Steve Austin‘s and his ongoing revolving cast of audio anarchists Today Is The Day‘s output for a long time (Willpower is my current favorite…TITD albums always change place vying for number one in my heart, much like Clutch and Melvins records).  Steve told me once years ago during an interview that once he got hooked on The Jesus Lizard he was just drawn to need uglier and more raw sounds. Their new clip for “Heathen” (from recent Southern Lord life punisher Animal Mother) certainly finds a foothold in the steaming guts of misanthropy. It might be their best since “Six Dementia Satyr”, which was a long time ago. “Heathen” is a disturbing distilled animated vision of boiling grief, alienation and anger. Set to the untamed crunch of TITD’s grim march, the clip features weaponry, self-harm, madness and crosses while Steve screams “No God/One shot” in his trademark bloody and hissing shouts. In a particularly moving scene sure to give existential nightmares we see isolated figures made of burning flame atop mounds of accumulated refuse as crosses seem to beckon with empty promise. It’s a scene of images that will be glued to my thoughts for some time to come, I wager.

Bloody Disgusting has the video premiere HERE. Highly recommended experience from a classic noise/grind band.

The video for said anthem comes courtesy of Novel Concept TV, whose architects share an equally mad vision of the world as the band, bringing the song to visual fruition through an intense, animated self/outward mutilation spree.

 Issues Austin of the “Heathen” video’s inception, “I was on tour last fall and stayed at my long time friend, Neil Barrett’s house. While I was there he showed some of the video work he had been doing and my mind was blown. Neil and Marco Morales are super creative dudes and Neil has been intoTITD since the band began. Together, they make some really psychedelic mind expanding films; it’s really cool to finally get to work on something together.”

The video’s creators themselves offer, “We’ve been in the dungeon at the Austin Enterprise compound for several weeks with no food, water or sleep creating this visual nightmare. We’re just happy it’s over. Steve Austin is a genius and a madman. We hope you enjoy the fruits of our suffering.”

In additional rad fucking news , after a brutal highway accident in late November, which destroyed their van, merch, equipment and seriously injured some of the members, TODAY IS THE DAY returns to the road in two weeks. Currently comprised of bassist Trevor Thomas, drummer Douglas Andrae, and founding guitarist/previously mentioned vocalist, Steve Austin, the band’s new trek will hit nearly thirty North American cities in a “clockwise massacre”, beginning in Portland, Maine on April 24th and finishing on May 24th in Rochester, New York, with direct support being supplied by Lazer/Wulf. More US tour dates and European shows coinciding with the band’s set at Temples Festival in Bristol, England in May will be declared soon.

TODAY IS THE DAY‘s Animal Mother is available on CD colored vinyl LP HERE and via BandCampHERE.

Steve Austin of noise/metal instigators Today Is The Day has been creatively on fire again of late, from the thrilling burden of the intensely mournful extreme record Animal Mother to his performance on LAE’s Break The Clasp post-rock experimental record of haunting whispers and psych dream fragments. TITD have two new music videos soon and are finally back following a near deadly van wreck.

 

Endure TODAY IS THE DAY‘s “Masada” video HEREAnimal Mother is available on CD colored vinyl LP HERE and via BandCamp HERE.

Get well soon, Steve: Today Is The Day van accident

Today Is The Day have been one of the biggest musical influences in my life as far as going against the grain and doing whatever the heck you want goes, even when people think your music should only be one style. Steve Austin is a live, studio and songwriting warrior as well as, to quote Clutch, a high caliber consecrator.  Plus, look at that bad ass new backdrop. I think the art is by Stevie Floyd from Taurus.

The man who has Temple Of The Morning Star, Willpower and this year’s  grief burdened and real Animal Mother makes music by diving into the things most people avoid looking at. Some people pick at scabs but Steve’s not so gently weeping guitar cuts wide wounds, all while opening whole new approaches to thinking about heavy music.

Last night he almost died.
