Biography

Nashville, United States (1992 – present)

Today Is The Day is an experimental rock/metal band founded by Steve Austin and Brad Elrod. The band saw its beginnings take root in Nashville, Tennessee in the early 1990s when Today Is The Day released their debut EP, entitled How To Win Friends And Influence People, in 1992. This self-financed release garnered the attention of Amphetamine Reptile Records (AmRep) who signed the band (at this time consisting of Austin on vocals and guitar, Brad Elrod on drums and percussion, and Mike Herrell on bass) in February 1993 and released the full-length Supernova later that year.

In September 1994, Today Is The Day saw its popularity in the metal underground gather steam with the release of their second album, entitled Willpower. That same year, Willpower was followed by the Clusterfuck ‘94 split EP with labelmates Chokebore and Guzzard. Today Is The Day made another appearance on 7” that year, as they contributed to the tenth volume of AmRep’s Dope-Guns-‘N-Fucking In The Streets 7” series with Brainiac and Steel Pole Bath Tub.

Today Is The Day’s eponymously-titled March 1996 effort furthered the band’s legacy within the metal community. This album was the first Today Is The Day release recorded at Austin’s own studio, Austin Enterprise, in Nashville. For this release, Steve Austin shifted the band’s sound slightly and opted to replace bassist Mike Herrell with keyboardist Scott Wexton. Today Is The Day would be the band’s final recording for AmRep.
