Equal Vision Records' Texas In July will release their third full-length album, which will be self-titled, on October 9.
The new album also features several guest artists: drummer Matt Greiner of August Burns Red, vocalist Dave Stephens of We Came As Romans, and vocalist Chadwick Johnson of Hundredth. The complete tracklisting can be seen below.
Texas In July was recorded in Belleville, NJ at The Machine Shop Studios, with producer Will Putney [For Today, Chiodos]. The band's first single will be "Bed of Nails", which will be released on September 11 via digital retailers such as iTunes and Amazon.com.
"This track is collectively one of our favorite songs that we have ever written as a band," explains lyricist/bassist Witkowski. "For the most part, "Bed of Nails" was written in the studio. It came together so smoothly and, surprisingly, pretty early on in writing/recording process and quickly became a favored track. We think of it as our hybrid song - it has many contrasting musical parts, as well as a heavy hitting vocal chant near the tail of the song. I really think people are going to be pleased to hear this song. I would love to see this track become our next "Hook Line and Sinner". It's very memorable, and feels like the perfect track to be released as the first listen for the upcoming record."
Texas In July is the follow up to their Equal Vision Records debut, One Reality, which was released in April 2011. The album premiered at No. 3 on the Billboard New Artist/Heatseekers Chart and also placed on the Billboard 200, Rock, Independent, and Hard Rock charts.
Texas In July has been on the road non-stop for the past year, including three European headliners, massive tours with the likes of August Burns Red, We Came As Romans, For Today, Silverstein, and Norma Jean, and performances at renowned music festivals around the world such as New England Metal and Hardcore Fest, Graspop Metal Meeting, Summerfest, Cornerstone Festival and The Bamboozle.
The band is currently on the Scream It Like You Mean It Tour with additional fall tour plans to be announced soon. All upcoming tour dates can be found below.
