Latest It Dies Today News
Below is our complete It Dies Today news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Note: We began associating news directly with bands in late 2003. Therefore, earlier band news may not be listed on this page.
It Dies Today is currently in the studio working on the follow up to The Caitliff Choir, their Trustkill Records debut which scanned over 65,000 copies in the U.S. In the producer's seat is Gggarth Richardson (Rage Against The Machine, Atreyu) with co-production from none other than the band's guitarist, Mike Hatalak. The Caitiff Choir wowed press and fans alone with national publications like Metal Edge saying "It Dies Today make their mark with guitar crescendos, battering ram drums, and spider-walking bass, setting a new precedent for this most trendy of hardcore and heavy metal fusions." Speaking on the new material vocalist Nick Brooks says "The whole album has very dark overtones. There are tracks that are based on relationships, losing faith, and then regaining it. It's everything that has changed in my life since the last album." There is also song that deals with the quotes of serial killer Aileen Wurnos, of whom the movie Monster is based. Commenting on that song Brooks says "This is one of our catchier tunes, ironically. I took what is known to be her last words and made a song out of my interpretation of them." The album will see a September release, but the band will be playing several of the new songs on their summer of high profile tours.

Details have begun to materialize for this summer's Strhess Tour 2006. The trek will kick off in July, with Shadows Fall returning as the headlining act (they headlined Strhess 2004). The tour also features Poison The Well in the direct support slot in addition to It Dies Today and Still Remains, with other acts such as Darkest Hour, Bury Your Dead, Himsa and Suffocation joining the tour in select markets. Shadows Fall frontman Brian Fair had the following to say regarding the tour:
"Finally Shadows Fall will be hitting the road this year! After months of being trapped in the practice space we are really looking forward to getting back onstage. It looks like this will be the only tour we will be doing this year in support of our new album, Fallout From The War, so we urge everyone to do their best to make it out before we head back into the studio to begin work on the next album. We plan on busting out new tunes from the Fallout record and dusting of a few old tunes and adding them back into the set list. We are very excited to be part of the Strhess tour once again. The first one was a blast and we are honored that Derek Hess and all the people at Strhess have decided to invite us back. Hope to see you all there."

It Dies Today have been holed up in their Buffalo, NY practice space as of late writing their next album. The group will enter the studio with Gggarth Richardson (Rise Against, Atreyu) next month to begin recording. The new album will hit stores on September 5th via Trustkill Records.
It Dies Today are out with the video to their new single '', a remake of the Depeche Mode hit. The song is featured on the 'Masters Of Horror' Soundtrack. You can watch it online at Trustkill.com in Windows Media or Quicktime formats.
The band recently wrapped up a load of tour dates with Bullet For My Valentine and Still remains. It Dies Today will have their track "Severed Ties Yield Severed Heads" featured on the upcoming "MTV2 Headbangers Ball: The Revenge" two-CD compilation.
MTV2 and Roadrunner Records have announced the release of the third installment in the successful series – MTV2 HEADBANGERS BALL: THE REVENGE. The low priced, double-disc is due in stores on April 11, 2006.
On the heels of the Gold certification of the first installment, MTV2 HEADBANGERS BALL, VOLUME 1 and the success with MTV2 HEADBANGERS BALL, VOLUME 2, MTV2 and Roadrunner Records once again set out to gather the very best in Hard Rock and Heavy Metal. The result is more than 2 1/2 hours of music on 2 CDs: disc one represents the strongest tracks from today's biggest rock bands, and disc two brings together the strongest up-and-comers from the underground rock scene.
In addition to the genre-defining anthems that represent the best of the show, there are enough rare and unreleased tracks to satisfy tastemaker metal fans as well. Packed with a total of 38 hard-charging tracks, this collection has 7 exclusive offerings. They include the Terry Date mix of Slipknot's "Before I Forget", and the live recording of Killswitch Engage's "A Bid Farewell", which both see their first CD release on this compilation. Other exclusives are brand new tracks from Hatebreed and Walls Of Jericho, both of which were written especially for this release (Hatebreed's lead vocalist, Jamey Jasta, is the host of the Headbangers Ball program on MTV2). A video for the Hatebreed track, entitled "To The Threshold", will air on video channels in March. A side project of Jasta's, Kingdom of Sorrow (which also includes members of Down, Crowbar and Seemless), also throws a brand new track into the ring. The compilation beat Dragonforce and 36 Crazyfists' record releases to the punch with fresh new tracks from these up-and-comers.

Well it was one hell of a tour, the 10th annual Ozzfest Summer Amphitheatre Tour came to an end once again in West Palm Beach, FL and I had a chance to be there. For 6 years now I have been planning on going to Ozzfest but for some reason something has always came up and I couldn't go. Last year I had everything lined up to go, and a damn hurricane hit the place. This year I finally lucked out and went to my first Ozzfest. Let me tell you "I have waited for this for a very long time." I loaded up the Tahoe with a couple friends and my wife and we left about 2:00am Saturday morning and drove about 9 1/2 hours from Charleston to West Palm Beach, FL. That was a long drive, I probably should have gone to the one in Charlotte, NC the night before but......."The best one is the last one" that's what I have always been told. More...

It Dies Today have been added to Trivium's upcoming September 10th-September 28th UK/Ireland run with All That Remains
I attended Ozzfest 2005 on Sunday, July 24 in Bristow, Virginia’s Nissan Pavilion (my report is running late, as I’ve found myself overcommitted lately). This fest was the tenth annual Ozzfest, and not to be outdone by last year’s excellent lineup, this year they sported an equally as good lineup spanning more genres of metal than before. This year’s lineup also contained numerous headliner-quality bands on both stages including, Killswitch Engage, Shadows Fall, Rob Zombie, Mudvayne, and of course Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath.
Had I known that both people I was supposed to go with would bail out, I would have lined up a photo pass for the whole show to give me something more to do. As it turned out, I pretty much just enjoyed the show and met up with As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis for an interview that we missed in Philadelphia, PA.
While this year’s lineup sported mostly bands I knew and had heard, most I was only vaguely familiar with, so pardon the lack of specific details such as song names, etc. in many cases. More...
