“Steve Austin is a modern legend." - MetalSucks
"Today is the Day inadvertently laid serious groundwork for a new wave of chaotic, noisy, metallic bands... it introduced more traditional metal and hardcore fans to a whole new approach to music."
"Steve & Co's music has showed us that loud amps in our faces is just as good as any shrink, bottle or pill. Today Is The Day was one of the first bands that made it OK to be unique, abrasive, and aggressive before it was fashionable or marketable. They helped us realize that when you get to hear the war inside another man's head, it makes us feel a little less alone in our own wars."
- Jamey Jasta (Hatebreed)
"In a time where genre blending has become common ground, I look to Steve Austin as an innovator of this crucial movement. By fusing various interests, sounds, and atmospheres within a single metal album, Today Is The Day created many seminal records in their long discography. I couldn't think of a better time to... take a look back on how they influenced the genre as we know it today. " - Frank Godla, Metal Injection
"Not only has Steve's work with Today is the Day influenced many of the progressive heavy hitting bands we love, but undoubtedly, many bands don't even realize they have been touched by his innovation." - Ben Weinman (Dillinger Escape Plan)
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE New York, NY (March 10, 2017) - Today Is The Day has released two tracks from the forthcoming reissue of Temple Of The Morning Star. This marks the 25th anniversary of the band, as well as the 20th anniversary of the band’s seminal album. Temple Of The Morning Star: 20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition, set for release March 24, is re-mastered by Maor Appelbaum (Cynic, YES, Faith No More, Sepultura), and available on digital, CD/DVD, and 2LP formats, featuring exclusive, never-before seen and heard bonus material from the band's deep archives. The pre-order is now live!
Says Steve Austin, "It was crazy being out on the road for this record and playing the Whisky was always an honor to me because of so many legendary shows being played there. I always loved playing 'Miracle' because it was just so goddamn heavy. The song blends hi string guitar riffing with detuned octave chords and lyrically is a look inside my mind during a time when I was trapped, living in a industrial warehouse and homeless."

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.
