Today Is The Day has officially announced the addition of Derek Roddy to their line-up.

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.
