3 September 2002
Sadness Will Prevail is a double album and the sixth release overall by Today Is the Day, released on September 3, 2002 through Relapse Records. At over two hours and twenty-five minutes in length, it is currently the longest album of the band's career as well as their most polarizing in terms of critical reception. Reoccurring themes of the album include isolation, depression, death, suicide, and violence. The album took three years to write and six months to record, mix, and master all at Steve Austin's self run studio Austin Enterprise. The album, for the most part, was inspired by a period of time when Austin was stuck in his home due to a severe snow storm with his family. Another big inspiration for the album was the rise of technology and the internet, which according to Austin, influenced his decision to stop using his phone to instead use E-Mail to communicate with other people.
