Pennsylvania metal band Texas In July has debuted a new track titled “Sweetest Poison” today through Loudwire.com (also available below).
The song is featured on the band’s fourth full-length album, "Bloodwork," which is due for release on September 16th via Equal Vision Records. Fans can pre-order the record digitally at iTunes (w/instant download of “Broken Soul”) and in a variety of bundles at this location.
"Sweetest Poison is a perfect representation of all that Bloodwork has to offer wrapped up in one song,” says guitarist Chris Davis. “When writing albums in the past, we felt trapped into certain guidelines as far as what a Texas In July song needed to sound like, which was something we wanted to break free of this time around. While this song still sounds like the TIJ our fans expect to hear, it features a bunch of new elements for us. JT's vocal performance on this song is one of my favorites on this album, and he really shows just how dynamic and wide of a range he has!”
The band just wrapped up a European tour and will be hitting the road again in September for a full U.S. tour with After The Burial, I Declare War, Reflections and Come The Dawn. More...

April can’t come any sooner!”
Cavey adds, "It is impossible to express my excitement to begin this tour through words, so I will channel my passion, as I have before, through my performances. I know we, as a band, have been longing to show old and new fans what the new Texas In July line-up is all about. We want to leave every pair of eyes and ears with a whole new intensity and fulfillment that you have never experienced from us before." More...

The latest round of additions to the continually-expanding lineup for 2014's installment of the New England Metal & Hardcore Festival has been disclosed, including Massachusetts' own '90s hardcore punk act, Sam Black Church.
Confirmed as one of the main headliners of the event's third night, Saturday, April 19th, Sam Black Church's set at NEMHF 2014 will mark only the third performance since the group initially disbanded at the turn of the century, and first in Central Massachusetts since the late '90s.
Stated the band upon being asked to take part in the massive event this Spring: "It is amazing what the man we used to know as Ogre has done with the New England Metalfest! We are fucking excited to be a part of it once again!"
The organizers of the fest comment: "Formed in Boston, in June of 1988 by Jesse "Jet" Crandall (vocals), Ben Crandall (guitar), Richard G. Lewis (bass), and J.R. Roach (drums), Sam Black Church was known for their energetic live performances, playing a frenetic blend of hardcore, metal, and thrash. Over the years sharing bills with bands as diverse as Bad Brains, Clutch, Motörhead, Cro-Mags, Fear, and Helmet, they were one of the most popular hardcore bands in the Northeast United States during the 1990s. After releasing three full-lengths on Taang! Records, they left to join Wonderdrug where they remained until they retired in 2000 after releasing a total of seven albums. Since disbanding, Sam Black Church reunited for a sold-out show on September 22, 2007, at The Roxy in Boston, and played a another sold-out performance at Hometown Throwdown #16 with The Mighty Mighty Bosstones at House of Blues in Boston on December 29th, 2013. A documentary of their career by Duncan Wilder Johnson entitled Leave Behind a Groove in the Earth is scheduled for release in 2014."
Also now confirmed to invade this year's festival are Oceano, Scars of Tomorrow, The Last Ten Seconds of Life, InDirections, and Julius Seizure on Thursday, April 17th, and Reflections on Friday, April 18th. The setup for Saturday, April 19th has also been lengthened with Texas In July, Obey The Brave and the aforementioned Sam Black Church performance. The currently announced lineup is as follows: More...
