“It’s Gonna Be OK” is a positive song, lyrically, and is all about keeping your chin up when things are looking down,” states Ilan Rubin about the track. “Musically, it has a cool shuffle feel and lot of Brian Wilson-esque harmonies in the choruses and outro. I love the constant change in mood from light to dark throughout the entire song.”

TODAY IS THE DAY Premieres “No Good To Anyone” Single Via Decibel Magazine

Along with the the cover art, commissioned to Jef Whitehead (Leviathan, Lurker Of Chalice), the title track to No Good To Anyone has been issued through an exclusive premiere hosted by Decibel Magazine who writes, “‘No Good to Anyone,’ the title track to the brand-new album from extreme music visionary Steve Austin’s TODAY IS THE DAY, is the sound of a man pulling himself straight through hell and battling his way out. Building from slow, doomy dirges into a tangled mess of jagged guitars, discordant notes, off-kilter drumming and half-snarled-half-shrieked vocals, the song is proof positive that TODAY IS THE DAY have a point to prove and a story to tell on their new album.”
