TEXAS IN JULY's new full-length album, "One Reality", sold around 3,300 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 173 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD landed at position No. 2 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
"One Reality" was recorded in Hadley, Massachusetts with producer Chris "Zeuss" Harris (HATEBREED, SHADOWS FALL) and is TEXAS IN JULY's sophomore full-length album and Equal Vision Records debut. The CD features technical, hard-hitting drumming, flawless transitions, ongoing dueling guitar riffs, and intricate arpeggios seamlessly melded together through the band's intense breakdowns and pop-punk groove.
Alternative Press magazine named TEXAS IN JULY one of its "100 Bands You Need to Know in 2011" in the April 2011 issue and stated of the new album, "'One Reality' offers excellent pit fuel, with a few meditative moments that demonstrate an admirable depth that will hopefully continue to grow on future releases."
TEXAS IN JULY's new single, "Magnolia", will be made available in the Rock Band Network store, courtesy of Equal Vision Records and RockGamer Studios. The song will join the band's previously released tracks "Hook, Line, and Sinner", "Elements", and "Uncivilized" which are already available for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
The Ephrata, Pennsylvania-based band is currently on the 2011 Take Action Tour with SILVERSTEIN, BAYSIDE, POLAR BEAR CLUB and THE SWELLERS. They will next head out on the Scream The Prayer Tour with NORMA JEAN, SLEEPING GIANT, THE CHARIOT, WAR OF AGES, and many more.
