• TEXAS IS THE REASON - Do You Know Who You Are? 2 xLP (ORANGE VINYL)
Formed in the wake of influential hardcore bands Shelter and 108, Texas is the Reason, by definition, embodies the epitome of post-hardcore–arriving on the scene half a decade after the genre’s most celebrated trailblazers, Fugazi, got their start, and just a few years behind Quicksand, one of the first groups to embrace post-hardcore in their local New York City. Now, nearly 20 years since their inception and 15 since their disbandment, the group has reunited to play a string of shows, give their fans a proper farewell and compile their past recordings into one career retrospective package, Do You Know Who You Are? (The Complete Collection). Receiving more praise than ever, and commanding crowds larger than that of their original run, there seems to be no better time than now to look back at the short and illustrious discography of one of post-hardcore’s most beloved bands.
