TODAY IS THE DAY Verifies Extensive North American 2013 Spring Tour
Prophetic extreme music trio TODAY IS THE DAY will embark on an enormous North American tour this March and April, and have unleashed the first wave of confirmed dates.
TODAY IS THE DAY’s upcoming brutal voyage will begin in the Northeast and storm south across the country on the way to SXSW for this year’s official ToneDeaf Touring showcase alongside Orange Goblin, KEN Mode, Mondo Generator and more. After the festivities in Austin the outfit will continue a clockwise path of chaos up through the Northwest and Midwest US and into Canada.
Support for TODAY IS THE DAY throughout most of the venture will be provided by Black Tusk, KEN Mode and Fight Amp. But Black Tusk will drop from the trek after a month on the road, and will be replaced by a special guest to be announced shortly. Additional American and Canadian shows and more action for this year’s SXSW and more will be confirmed soon as well. Stay tuned. In the meantime, the confirmed routing is as follows, with tickets for most of the shows going on sale tomorrow.
Celebrating its twentieth anniversary in 2013, TODAY IS THE DAY remains one of the most unique and influential bands of the past two decades. Led by visionary frontman Steve Austin, TITD’s violent but psychedelic attack has received worldwide acclaim ever since the debut album, Supernova, hit in 1993. Nine studio albums have been released on such labels as Amphetamine Reptile and Relapse, and the band’s ever-morphing lineup has included such musicians as Brann Dailor and Bill Kelliher, who would later go on to form Mastodon.
TODAY IS THE DAY has toured the world with Motörhead, Helmet, The Melvins, Morbid Angel, Converge, Napalm Death, Neurosis, Eyehategod, Unsane, Coalesce, and many more. Steve Austin has also made a name as a producer, helping create seminal albums for Lamb of God, Converge, Deadguy, and more. The current lineup sees Austin flanked by drummer Curran Reynolds (Wetnurse) and bassist Ryan Jones (Wetnurse, Mutilation Rites) — as witnessed on the band’s Kurt Ballou-produced Pain Is A Warning LP, issued in 2011 via Blackmarket Activities — which received critical acclaim and took the band on massive US and European tours including performances at Maryland Deathfest, Roskilde Festival and more.
Stay tuned for continuous updates on TODAY IS THE DAY as the tour draws near.
