1 - TEXAS IS THE REASON - DO YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE?: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION - (LP) 
REVELATION


They came from some of the most popular, if not polarizing hardcore bands of the early 90s (SHELTER, 108, RESSURECTION), but by the time TEXAS IS THE REASON formed in 1994, a new aesthetic crystallized almost instantly and reduced its members previous efforts to history. Indeed, it was only a year later, when Revelation Records released the bands self-titled EP - their name derived from a lyric in the MISFITS song "Bullet" - that TEXAS IS THE REASON were already headlining their own tours in America and well on their way to defining a new moment in post-punk. In April of 1996, the band reinforced that initial success with their first and only album, produced by JAWBOXs J. Robbins and named after the last words that John Lennon was alleged to have heard: Do You Know Who You Are? In the years since, Spin, Alternative Press, and Paste would all go on to call Do You Know Who You Are? an essential 90s album. Unfortunately, after a year of heavy promotion and touring for the record, inner-band tension came to a head, and TEXAS IS THE REASON officially split in 1997. Its members would go on to form JETS TO BRAZIL, NEW END ORIGINAL, and ATLANTIC/PACIFIC. Since then, the band had only reunited once - for two sold-out New York City shows in 2006 - but their presence has barely waned: Newer generations of bands like SPITALFIELD, INTO IT. OVER IT., and TRANSIT have covered TEXAS IS THE REASON songs over the years, and even vets like THURSDAY, TAKING BACK SUNDAY, and ARMOR FOR SLEEP have all publicly cited their influence. So after agreeing to headline the opening night of Revelation Records 25th Anniversary festival in New York City earlier this year (and once again promptly selling it out), the band decided it was time to tie up the longest of loose ends: In early 2013, TEXAS IS THE REASON will begin a limited and exclusive North American run to support the release of a remastered discography collection featuring the bands entire recorded output, as well as two freshly recorded, never-before-released songs - their final songs ever.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Johnny On The Spot 02. The Magic Bullet Theory 03. Nickel Wound 04. Theres No Way I Can Talk Myself Out Of This One Tonight (the Drinking Song) 05. Something To Forget (version Ii) 06. Do You Know Who You Are? 07. Back And To The Left 08. The Days Refrain 09. A Jack With One Eye 10. Every Little Girls Dream* 11. When Rock N Roll Was Just A Baby* 12. Blue Boy 13. Something To Forget (version I) 14. If Its Here When We Get Back Its Ours 15. Dressing Cold 16. Antique
