Equal Vision Records' Texas In July will issue a digital deluxe version of their latest full-length album on July 16, just prior to their two week run on the 2013 Vans Warped Tour.
The self-titled album's expanded digital deluxe version features three brand new songs and was produced and engineered by Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland at Atrium Audio; And mixed and mastered by Will Putney. "Time-lapse" - the first of the new songs to be released - is available streaming now on Youtube.com/equalvision and also on the Equal Vision Records 2013 Summer Sampler.
"We are so glad Warped Tour attendees are going to be some of the first people to hear "Time-lapse" live!" shares Texas In July lyricist/bassist Witkowski. This song was an instant favorite of ours when it reached completion. Opening up our sound some more was in order for the deluxe songs, even throwing in new tunings and styles. We tried a bunch of new things throughout the three songs. I think our fans will enjoy the addition to our self-titled record, and that it will appeal to some new metal enthusiasts as well!"
