      Texas in July has wasted no time in charging headfirst into living out their dreams and touring full-time, immediately hitting the road following the recent high school graduations of their two youngest members The band has since headlined two European runs, toured Canada multiple times and crisscrossed the US countless times on tours such as the massive Motel 6 Rock Yourself To Sleep and I’m Alive tours with labelmates We Came As Romans, the 2011 Take Action Tour with Bayside and Silverstein, and the 2012 Leveler Tour with August Burns Red. The band will next venture out on a US headlining tour with support from Like Moths To Flames, The Air I Breathe, Hundredth and For All I Am and will perform at several upcoming festivals including Jamboree Festival, New England Metal Fest and The Bamboozle.

      Texas In July’s drummer, Adam Gray, was also invited to perform on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, in a skit called "Does This Thrill Bill?" last year. Gray performed his unique multi-tasking skills of simultaneously juggling and drumming, and successfully impressed actor William Shatner and host Jay Leno.

      The Ephrata, PA-based band’s sophomore full-length album and Equal Vision Records debut, One Reality, was released on April 26th, 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. Recorded in Hadley, MA with producer Zeuss [Hatebreed, Shadows Fall] this past winter, the album takes their signature sound to the next level of intensity with wider guitars, technical yet to-the point drumming and a focus on improved song structure.

      “We loved working with Zeuss, he had a very old school natural way of doing everything and we felt strongly about what he had to offer,” states vocalist Alex Good. “He is a great producer and we were very pleased to have him be a part of the record. I think the biggest thing for us on the new record is that we finally stepped out of our boundaries a little bit, we broke a few rules, and really went for something brand new.”
      Bassist and main lyricist, Ben Witkowski elaborates, “We put a lot of time into making sure that the transitions in the songs were crisp and that the vocal placements weren't just thrown into the written music. We worked as one big team writing this album to make sure that everything blended really well.”
      Gray’s exceptional, hard-hitting drumming and flawless transitions drive the album forward and showcase the musicianship of his fellow bandmates. Good’s signature screams of aggression shine through at the forefront, perfectly complimented by the intricate, staggering arpeggios and ongoing dueling riffs of guitarists Chris Davis and Christian Royer. Witkowski’s energetic bass lines bring the band’s sound together, bringing the punch and groove of a pop-punk band, while staying true to their heavy roots.
      The album charges forward with a constant sense of urgency and aggression, passionately explaining the importance of following the path that you believe in, in order to make the most out of life and the one chance you have to become who you truly want to be. By attacking the heartbreak of deceit and embracing the optimism of love, Texas In July unleashes an emotional lyrical fury, heavier and more intense than ever before.One Realitycaptures the process of moving forward, moving on, and growing as an individual.

      在不受年齡的約束下,來自美國賓夕凡尼亞州的樂隊Texas In July曾參與不同的巡演單位如Rock Yourself To Sleep及I’m Alive tour等,到過多個城市巡迴演出及歸來,與不同樂隊如The Devil Wears Prada、Silverstein、We Came As Romans、 Bayside、Every Time I Die To August Burns Red,Maylene和the Sons of Disaster等站在同一個台上演出 – 請留意,當時整隊樂隊還未從高中畢業已有此成就。他們正準備展開新一輪的美國巡演,將會在數個音樂節如Jamboree Festival,New England Metal Fest告The Bamboozle中演出!

      今年樂隊中最年幼的兩名成員從高中畢業,Texas In July不再如以往般盲衝直撞,而是全心全意地投入夢想。樂隊主音Alex Good解釋道:「我們現在已經由高中畢業,計劃在我們能力範圍內到世界各地巡演,越多越好。我們已急不及待到訪世界每一處,認識每一位我們將會遇見的人。」

      成立短短三年時間,Texas In July已在世界向地成功建立起屬於他們死忠粉絲社區 – 尤其是在他們的家鄉,超過750名粉絲可將他們在The Chameleon Club的演出塞滿現場。2008年他們在網上發行了首張電子EP ,將他們獨有的跳脫重型metalcore音樂帶給聆聽者。

      首張EP在網絡上產生巨大迴響,其後亦順理成章地推出實體專輯及發行至世界各地。為他們帶來緊密的巡演行程以及提供樂迷們一個絕佳的預覽機會 – 其後推出的完整專輯 。

      2009年由CI Records所發行,絕對印證出他們對音樂的熱誠,強度及造詣。結他手Royer說:「我們想粉絲們喜歡我們造的音樂及享受到最後一刻,由我們的歌聲以至對音樂的分析,我們希望所有人都可以連結在一起。」先有猛烈攪動節奏的再有勁度十足且無間斷的,透過深刻的歌詞及技術上的天份,這張專輯足以證明Texas In July在音樂上的成熟。

      2011年4月由Equal Vision Records發行的專輯取得絕佳成績,成功登上Billboard新人排行榜的第三位,及登上Billboard 200大搖滾/獨立搖滾/重搖滾名單中。此專輯由著名製作人Zeuss所監製,成功將他們的結他聲浪擴展得更廣更闊,鼓聲更有技巧及歌聲結構更精細。

      主音Alex Good表示:「我們非常喜歡與Zeuss合作,他有一種傳統自然的做事手法,使我們雙方更易取得默契和一致性。」他再續道:「他是一位非常出色的製作人,我們非常榮幸能與他合作,他是我們專輯的一部份。新專輯再一次擴展了我們各人的界線,我們打破傳統,取得更新穎更出色的成果。」

      從不安於現狀的Texas In July已密鑼緊鼓籌備下一張專輯。貝斯手Witkowki解釋:「過去的專輯將我們幾位成員在音樂事業上帶到更遠,但我們希望可以走到更高更遠的地方。」鼓手Gray補充:「我們感覺到我們的音樂已經進步很多,帶到更多不同層次的人面前,但我們需要更多新面孔。」

      Texas In July抱著巨大的野心及熱情到世界各地巡演,來見證他們的音樂如何衝破界線,你一生人至少要看一次。
