Southern Lord Recordings is beyond stoked to unleash the brand new album from visionary metal act, Today Is the Day. Animal Mother is the bands tenth studio album and is eagerly anticipated by their rabid and very loyal fans. 'I feel it is my finest work to this date. It is the most complex and heavy record we have ever made. This is real - no bullshit Protools crap; just pure violent energy and real band songwriting in the middle of the woods in Maine. It lies somewhere between Temple of the Morning Star and in the Eyes of God, and Jeff's playing is beyond incredible. I was determined to push the limits in complexity, musicianship, and creativity as far as we could and I feel we have put together a record that narrates the horror and pain that we have been living through.'
