‘Folie Circulaire’ was released in late June through Prosthetic, the band’s second full-length. The New York Times praised the album, saying, "These tracks contain a vast, roaring sea of guitar, and after a while you stop thinking about the artists' hands; it sounds as if it's not made by pale, bearded guys from Atlanta but by forces of weather."

Derek Roddy Joins Today Is The Day
December 16, 2006
Today Is The Day frontman Steve Austin has announced the addition of drummer Derek Roddy to the group's ranks.

Derek Roddy is renowned by musicians and music fans worldwide for pushing the art of drumming to new heights. Best known for his work with death metal bands such as Hate Eternal, Nile, and Malevolent Creation, Roddy's astonishing speed and finesse have won him international acclaim. He currently endorses Sonor Drums, Sabian Cymbals, Axis Pedals, Remo Heads, and Vater Sticks.

Roddy joins a long legacy of great drummers to occupy the Today Is The Day drum throne, including such heavyweights as Brad Elrod (the band's wildly unique original drummer), Brann Dailor (who would go on to form Mastodon), and Marshall Kilpatrick (currently of The Esoteric).

Roddy will make his Today Is The Day recording debut on the band's eighth studio album, 'Axis Of Eden'. Recording is planned for February 2007 at Steve Austin's own studio, Austin Enterprise, in Nashville, TN. 'Axis Of Eden' will be released on Austin's own label, SuperNova Records, later in the year.

Today Is The Day To destroy mankind and all that it stands for. To live my life the way I want to. To do what I believe is right. To devour enemies and celebrate life with friends. To never give up even though it hurts. To fight the blackness inside. To walk alone. To go beyond. To look within. To give yourself. To love and to hate. Today Is The Day Experimental-terror-metal noise heroes Today Is the Day are a full-on horror show. Harder, heavier and just plain truer, TITD is the real, zero-compromise deal. Today is the Day formed in 1992 gaining recognition throughout the underground of Metal and Hardcore. The bands founder, lead guitarist/vocalist and producer, Steve Austin doesnt live on Earth. Riffs are created when atoms collide and explode in a nuclear fusion of total madness. Austin and Co. have figured out how to lull the listener into a sickening trance only to pummel them with the next dose of pure hate and chaos. The band has released seven albums (six studio and one live) and each one is more electrifyingly frightening than the last. Today Is The Day couldn't get any scarier. A Psychedelic Bloodbath Onstage, Today Is the Day is a frothing, sinewy manifestation of metal energy--a nuclear id collapsing sex, power, and religion upon themselves. A self-actualized concept of good and evil; the absence of tolerance, pity, and devotion to God; insatiable hedonism: Toss these traits in the blender, amplify with detuned, molten speed metal, add visceral sound bites from film noir, and the resulting deformity will resemble Today Is the Day. Today Is The day are one of the most important bands in the history of underground music.
