The mighty TODAY IS THE DAY takes their visionary wrath to devotees across North America on their massive tour this week, which kicked off in Philadelphia Monday night. The band has added additional gigs with tourmates ABIGAIL WILLIAMS as well as several shows on their own at the beginning and end of the main tour, totaling forty plus shows as of now, as more are still to be added.

TODAY IS THE DAY's tenth studio full-length, and first for Southern Lord, Animal Mother unloads nearly an hour of the band's creepiest and heaviest chaos in years, its wrath recalling elements of their seminal Y2K-era albums, as always in their unclassifiable, prophetic style of metal. The album was recorded, produced and mastered at the frontman's Austin Enterprise (DEADGUY, BURN THE PRIEST/LAMB OF GOD, JELLO BIAFRA) and has reaped international critical acclaim since its release in October. Massive touring follows through the remainder of 2015.

Returning to the road full-time in support of Animal Mother, TODAY IS THE DAY has produced several new merch designs for the tour which are now available. Frontman Steve Austin has sanctioned longtime friend Tom Hazelmyer of Amphetamine Reptile Records (a.k.a. Haze XXL) to create the new Porno Reptile gear; a Lino-Cut design similar to what the artist has crafted for THE MELVINS, THE COWS and many others. A second new design was commissioned to another ally, Jef Whitehead, world renowned tattoo artist and mastermind of the band LEVIATHAN, who supplied the new Mythical shirt artwork. All current TODAY IS THE DAY merch is available from the band on tour and via mailorder HERE.

Steve Austin recently completed his first full-on solo recording, in the form of an original score for the upcoming Hollywood release of Addiction: A 60's Love Story, which sees its Hollywood premiere in November. The soundtrack also includes re-worked versions of earlier TODAY IS THE DAY songs, material from the Animal Mother LP and pieces from the other act Austin now fronts, Montreal-based LAE, and their debut LP Break The Clasp.
