"I’ve known Steve for about 20 years now. From the first time I saw Today Is The Day in the mid-90’s at a VFW in Connecticut to when I recorded Pain Is A Warning, he’s been approaching his music with unparalleled drive and intensity. This is a band that’s always worth listening to." - Kurt Ballou (Converge)
"Steve Austin and Today Is The Day is without a doubt the real deal. From eating the microphone to scaring the shit out of the crowd, they always deliver. Many tours dating back 20 years and more with Eyehategod we consider them true brothers. Now go buy the fucking record!" - Jimmy Bower (EyeHateGod, Superjoint Ritual, Down)
"Today Is The Day is a band's band — an outfit behind multiple legendary records that influenced your favorites, indirectly changing the landscape of heavy music as we know it." - CLRVYNT
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE New York, NY (July 28, 2017) - Today Is The Day has just announced the re-issue of the 1999 album In The Eyes Of God, which includes the hallmark lineup of Steve Austin, Brann Dailor (Mastodon) and Bill Kelliher (Mastodon). The re-issue, re-mastered by Maor Appelbaum and Steve Austin, will be available on digital, CD and LP formats September 22, and is available now for pre-order. The CD and digital versions contain demos of all 20 songs from the album, with the CD featuring exclusive demo bonus tracks from Steve Austin's deep archives!
In advance of the release, Today Is The Day has made three songs available for download and streaming. For fans of digital, "Possession," "Spotting A Unicorn," and "In The Eyes Of God" are available instantly with the full album iTunes pre-order. You can listen to the official audio below.
Says Austin, "In 1999, I set out to make the fastest and most technical Today Is The Day record I could. The record was recorded in full three times, with the third version being the one we released. The second time we demo'd the album came out really great and could have been the released version. So with this re-issue, the listener can hear the progression of the record being made. Brann Dailor's drumming and Bill Kelliher's bass playing was a perfect fit for this out-of-control album."

This marked the first time that How To Win Friends & Influence People was commercially distributed and available in vinyl formatting. This newly re-mastered version showcases the band in its infancy, right before they went on to produce some of the most lauded releases in metal/noise-rock history.
Today Is The Day reigns as one of the most influential bands of the past two decades. The band's violent and anthemic style, which blends metal, noise, psychedelia, and rock, has won worldwide acclaim ever since the debut album, Supernova, first hit in the early 90s. 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 Motorhead, 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.
