Billie Eilish is a fan of It Dies Today
It turns out mega pop star Billie Eilish is a fan of heavy music, more specifically early 2000s metalcore from the Buffalo, NY Area. In the early hours of the morning, Eilish posted a quick 5-second clip taken from the inside of a vehicle in which the video is just of passing scenery, but the kicker is she used It Dies Today's classic "A Threnody For Modern Romance" off The Caitiff Choir (Trustkill Records) as the audio behind the clip. You can view the video in our Twitter (or X) replies to the Tweet (or Xeet) below.
Looks like @billieeilish is a @ItDiesToday fan, she posted this to her story 8 hours ago.
Maybe she has already listened to our NEW podcast that is out today featuring Nick Brooks of IDT!

This isn't the first time a giant pop star has shown ties to the heavy music world; Post Malone is famously known for being spotted at hardcore shows and metal concerts, Demi Lovato has voiced her love for bands such as Maylene And The Sons Of Disaster and Lamb Of God, and hell, even recently actor Michael Shannon appeared at a He Is Legend show recently. Albeit not a pop star or anything, but still very cool.
Though you may not enjoy the music these artists make, it is very interesting to see how far this little world of screaming music can reach. Kudos to It Dies Today for the mention, perfect timing too.
Does Billie know the band has recently started things back up? Is she going to attend the reunion at Furnace Fest this year? She certainly was side-stage for Knocked Loose performing at Coachella, so it's not out of the realm of possibilities, is it?
Oddly enough, we also released the latest episode of The Vanflip Podcast featuring vocalist Nick Brooks of It Dies Today, check it out below:
