Message From Texas Is The Reason

Posted by: Rohan Kohli (04/24/07)
Check below for an update from Texas Is The Reason.
Message From The BandTwelve years ago this week, Texas is the Reason went to Boston and recorded the 3-song demo that became our 3-song EP. Wow.

Eleven years ago, today, Texas is the Reason played a show in Garrett's hometown of Buffalo, opening for our good friends in Snapcase. This morning, when we looked in our MySpace Inbox, Brandon wrote in to say that he has uploaded and posted a video of the show to his new weblog. It's worth a link:

Texas Is The Reason, live in Buffalo. April 20, 1996.

Also worth nothing: Do You Know Who You Are? came out that week. Eleven years ago, this week.

Finally, our talented friend and artist Jesse Ledoux the man who designed the limited edition silkscreen commemorative posters for our 10-year-anniversary weekend in November has put the final copies of the poster on sale. These are coming from his own personal stash. So if you missed out on buying one from our merch site, This is your last chance.

Our merch, of course, is still available from our partners at Merch Now.

That's it for now. Be good, everyone. It's been real.

xo Texas is the Reason

I've always wondered, did they get their name from The Misfits?
