Steve Austin from Today is the Day scores movie soundtrack

Posted by on August 12, 2015

Today is the Day mastermind Steve Austin recently composed the soundtrack for an upcoming movie, Addiction: A ‘60s Love Story, which will be appear in theaters in New York City and LA on October 23rd.

Said Austin on the project:

“Two years ago, my good friend Tate Steinsiek asked me if I wanted to do the original score for this film; after reading the script, I immediately said yes! The film is set in the 1960s. Rather than go for a retro vibe, I set out to make a score for this film that could enhance the seedy, criminal vibe going on. Dirty, smoky jazz, psychedelic keyboards, and in general a vibe that makes you feel the duality of what the main character Max Bornstein, is going through. When I got the final cut of the film, I locked myself away in my studio and watched the film over and over again. The main character in the film struggles with normal family life and the dark side of drug addiction and selling illegal pornography. I was deeply affected by this film. For days, I felt like I had fallen into the dark and insane world that Max was living in back in the 1960s and 1970s. It’s a true story, that really hits hard.”

In addition to original music made just for the movie, “Outlaw” from Today Is The Day’s most recent album Animal Mother is used, as well as, “a psychedelic reworking of the title track to the band’s classic Temple Of The Morning Star LP, as well as the emotional “Broken Knee” ballad by Austin-fronted post-hardcore outfit, LAE, and their debut LP, Break The Clasp.”
