Steve Austin is a man barely interested in defining his band Today Is the Day. Over the past 20 years, he’s barreled through the metal, experimental, and noise turnstiles; he’s also repeatedly eaten those turnstiles and made even more music with the shavings. But if Austin and his numerous collaborators have never bought into definitions, they have bought into results. Final, brutal results. Frontal lobe clatter is a TITD constant, and white-phosphorus fury that boils the surface of the skin. Today, Today is the Day includes Austin and members of Manhattan metallurgists Wetnurse. With A Storm of Light, Elks, and Eyes of the Sun.
