New ‘Texas In July’ Album Details Revealed, European / UK Tour Dates


Ephrata, Pennsylvania-based quintet Texas In July will release its third, self-titled full-length album on October 9 via Equal Vision Records. The CD was recorded at The Machine Shop Studios in Belleville, New Jersey with producer Will Putney [For Today, Chiodos]. A single, Bed Of Nails, will precede the full-length effort on September 11 via digital retailers such as iTunes and

“This track is collectively one of our favorite songs that we have ever written as a band,” explains Texas In July lyricist/bassist Ben 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.”

The new album features several guest artists: drummer Matt Greiner of August Burns Red, vocalist Dave Stephens of We Came As Romans, and vocalist Chadwick Johnson of Hundreth.
