On March 24, The End Records will release a special twentieth anniversary edition of Today is the Day‘s 1997 album, Temple of the Morning Star. This reissue is a must-have for fans who already love the album or n00bs are just getting into Today is the Day: depending on which format you purchase, you’ll not only get bonus demos, but also audio and/or video of a complete 1997 performance by the band recorded live at LA’s legendary Whisky a Go Go!
Mouth watering yet? No worries: we have something to tide you over ’til the reissue’s release… specifically, the Morning Star track “Miracle,” as taken from that special Whisky a Go Go performance!
Says Today is the Day mastermind Steve Austin of the recording:
“It was crazy being out on the road for this record and playing the Whisky was always an honor to me because of so many legendary shows being played there. I always loved playing ‘Miracle’ because it was just so goddamn heavy. The song blends hi string guitar riffing with detuned octave chords and lyrically is a look inside my mind during a time when I was trapped, living in a industrial warehouse and homeless.”
Oy. Let no one ever say Mr. Austin never suffered for his art.
