    label: Black Market Activities

    Today is the Day reign as one of the most unique and influential bands of the past two decades. The band's violent and anthemic style blend metal, noise, psychadelic, and rock, winning them worldwide acclaim since their debut release Supernova in the early 90s. They have toured the world with Morbid Angel, Motorhead, Helmet, Unsane, Converge, Napalm Death, Coalesce and many others. Steve Austin, the iconic founder and front man of Today is the Day, has made a name as a producer, aiding in the creation of seminal albums for Converge, Lamb of God, Deadguy, and more. Widely influential, Today is the Day is accredited as being one of the national starting points for Bill Kelliher and Brann Dailor, who would later form Mastodon after spending time in the band in 1999. The band released prior material with respected cult labels Amphetamine Reptile, Relapse, Hydrahead and Steve Austin's own Supernova Records before signing with Black Market Activities earlier this year. Role Reversal: The album is produced by Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou at God City, even more awesome because Today is the Day mastermind Steve Austin produced Converge's When Forever Comes Crashing album back in 1997
