Steve Austin (Today Is The Day) Documentary “The Man Who Loves To Hurt Himself” To Be Released In August

A new Steve Austin (Today Is The Day) documentary called “The Man Who Loves To Hurt Himself” is set to be released on August 28. You can pre-order the effort on Blu-ray and DVD via Amazon and digitally via iTunes.

The following description was offered in a press release:

“Steve Austin, whose noise-laden, experimental and fiercely aggressive musical output over two decades has served as testimony, touched hearts and myriad troubled lives. Not many people can say they have so fully dedicated themselves to what they love and believe as Steve Austin has. To many, he defines the word “legend.”

The loose but subdued methodical subtlety of the movie stands in sharp contrast to an artist known in the worldwide underground of extreme music for abrasive, loud, chaotic spectacle and neo-violent imagery through a slow, brooding and emotional ninety-three minutes that covers a year of conversations and ride-a-longs with the casual aesthetic of natural conversation supported by raw grainy fan shot footage, old pictures, personal home videos, career spanning amulets, in a self-examination of the psyche of a modern-day “madman” and “master.”

Ride along as Austin‘s first-person account brings balance to these opposing forces, reckoning and stretching himself from the drive to create his musical vision, engaging and performing intense shows around the world, to being home with his wife and children. How one near-death experience led him to connect with the love of his life and begin the transition, fulfilling his destiny as a loving family man while completing his mission to bring relief his followers, and overcome being the man who loves to hurt himself.

The Man Who Loves To Hurt Himself is not your typical music documentary, but rather a film that focuses on the story of the artist himself, and what it means to express yourself on an existential level no matter what the cost.”

Today Is The Day Stream Remasterd Version Of “In The Eyes Of God”

Today Is The Day are streaming the remastered version of their 1999 album “In The Eyes Of God.” This version of the album will be released tomorrow (September 22). It is worth noting that the effort features Steve Austin, along with Mastodon’s Brann Dailor and Bill Kelliher.

Today Is The Day To Reissue “In The Eyes Of God”

Today Is The Day will be reissuing their 1999 album “In The Eyes Of God” on September 22, via The End Records. That effort, which featured Steve Austin, along with Mastodon’s Brann Dailor and Bill Kelliher, has been remastered by Austin and Maor Applebaum, and it will come with various demo tracks. Austin said the following:

“In 1999, I set out to make the fastest and most technical Today Is The Day record I could. The record was recorded in full three times, with the third version being the one we released. The second time we demo’d the album came out really great and could have been the released version. So with this re-issue, the listener can hear the progression of the record being made. Brann Dailor‘s drumming and Bill Kelliher‘s bass playing was a perfect fit for this out-of-control album.”
