Equal Vision Records is pleased to welcome Texas In July to its roster.

Defying any definitions of age, the band has already toured the country and back, sharing stages with everyone from The Devil Wears Prada and Every Time I Die to August Burns Red and Maylene and the Sons of Disaster – all before the entire band had graduated from high school.

With their two youngest members walking across the graduation stage this year, Texas In July are about to charge headfirst out of Ephrata, P.A. and into living out their dreams full-time. Balancing their sensitive expressions of faith with some of metalcore’s most ferocious and in-your-face vocals and breakdowns, the band has already proven that they have what it takes to put small-town-Pennsylvania on the map.

Supporting their 2009 full-length release, I Am, members Logan Maurer (guitar), Ben Witkowski (bass), Alex Good (vocals), Adam Gray (drums) and Christian Royer (guitar) have just wrapped up a U.S. tour with An Early Ending and are currently overseas on their first European tour. Upon returning, the band will tour throughout the U.S. and Canada, remaining on the road through mid-October.

Additional Fall dates will be announced soon!

Heaven's Metal: An Oral History of the Genesis of Christian Metal

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
