Following a sold-out two-night stand in New York City last month, post-hardcore pioneers Texas is the Reason are leaving their hometown for the first time in fifteen years for an exclusive North American engagement in 2013 covering eight cities in the U.S. and Canada."When we first agreed to play the New York leg of Revelation 25 back in July, it was pretty clear to us that if we were going to do this again, we were going to finally tie up all of the loose ends that have nagged us for so long," explains guitarist Norman Brannon. "Part of that meant going back into the studio to record the songs we never had a chance to make real, but part of that also meant to go out and say thank you to all of the people who have kept this band alive for so long. These shows are the first part of that thank-you." Although there is yet to be an official announcement regarding the Baltimore studio sessions that the group has already wrapped up with longtime friend and collaborator J. Robbins, it seems as if 2013 will be a banner year for Texas is the Reason. Since disbanding in 1997, the band has reunited only once for two New York shows in 2006, and yet despite this absence, their presence has barely waned: Newer generations of bands like Spitalfield, Into It. Over It., and Transit have all covered Texas is the Reason songs; vets like Thursday, Taking Back Sunday, and Armor For Sleep, among others, have publicly cited their influence; and posthumous print coverage from magazines like Alternative Press, SPIN, and Paste have all deemed the band's recorded output as essential listening. To wit, Do You Know Who You Are? continues to be one of Revelation Records' best selling albums of all time, and Texas is the Reason will kick off 2013 by headlining the closing night of Revelation's 25th anniversary festival in Chicago. Tickets for all eight dates go on sale this Friday, November 9, and in a short promo film for the tour, the band makes it clear that this will be a limited and exclusive run. "There's this thing in the video about a 'last waltz,'" Brannon says, "and as far as North America goes, this really is it. We're gonna go out there and play these shows like they're our last shows ever, because for all these cities, they are. There are some other places we need to visit, and we'll get around to that, but this is the first big step towards our last steps. This time, we're going to finish it right."
