The Man Who Loves To Hurt Himself
Frontman of Tennessee noise rock trio Today is the Day, Steve Austin, is the subject of the upcoming documentary, The Man Who Loves To Hurt Himself, which, as an official press release states…
…takes a look at Steve Austin’s nearly-three-decade-long career as a musician in TODAY IS THE DAY and his reflection of his life. It explores how he balances life with his artistic passions and the undeniable effect his fans express to him about the life altering meaning it has had on them. Short spent two years following Austin around the US on tour, listening to his inner thoughts and questions about life like a fly on the wall. In his own words, he guides the watcher through his world by stream of consciousness. This reflects the conversations he has with himself in his head — a first-person account. If you were to have your life flash before your eyes right before you die, this film is what Steve Austin might see about himself.
