TEXAS IN JULY ANNOUNCES
WINTER HEADLINING TOUR:
A METAL CHRISTMAS
NOV 23 – Ephrata, PA-based band, Texas In July, will head out on a short headlining tour preceding their upcoming run on the Motel 6 Rock Yourself To Sleep Tour.
Joining Texas In July on the A Metal Christmas tour will be Destruction Of A Rose, A Hero A Fake, With Life In Mind, and Like Moths To Flames.
Texas In July is currently in Hadley, MA recording their new full-length album with producer Zeuss [Hatebreed, Shadows Fall]. “It’s been a long time that we’ve been waiting to get into the studio to record this album,” states guitarist Ben Witkoswki. “So we’re very excited to be here and can’t wait for everyone to hear the new album.”
Fans can expect Texas In July’s signature sound and intensity — on an even greater level. The new album will feature heavier songs with technical yet to-the-point drumming, wide, epic guitars and improved song structures. “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,” Witkowski elaborates. “We worked as one big team writing this album to make sure that everything blended really well.”
The upcoming album is tentatively planned for a Spring 2011 release date. It will be Texas In July’s first album on Equal Vision Records.

It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way.
