After taking the time to expand on the promise of their stellar , THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES are back with their most eloquent and potent release to date. The band spent the last months holed away honing their squawking and abrasive sound into the daunting Easter, due out October 10th. This second proper full length finds the Seattle foursome towing a proverbial line between paradox, hostility and a caustic blend of post-hard/math core. Retaining the definitive tension and angular force of earlier THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES efforts, Easter is the year-long culmination of a more structured yet experimental song writing process. Recorded at Red Room Recording in Seattle by drummer Chris Common, Easter explores the relationship between suspect animism, impending otherwordly doom and the ethereal battle between virtue and ruin. More than anything from THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES’ back catalog, Easter was meant to hurt you.

"a post-punk swagger — gently profiling residents of a mental ward. The band’s got heart, too." – Blender

"[A] gleaming, polished gem." – Tiny Mix Tapes

"THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES have clearly created a distinct sound and are doing something only the Blood Brothers can come close to right now in terms being interesting, inventive and still rocking hard. " – Cokemachineglow

"A challenging debut that sidesteps inflated expectations by staying close to the group’s established sound while still demonstrating a flexibility conducive to future musical development." – Pitchforkmedia

"Even if Oxeneers doesn’t move you, it’ll surely floor you." – Alternative Press

The Snakes will be bringing Easter to the masses in a matter of days, so don’t miss the show in your hood. Check out the for updates and the full info.

TEXAS IS THE REASON TO REUNITE

NYC punk legends are pleased to announce their plans to reunite for one night, November 25th, at New York’s famed Irving Plaza. The band, whom abruptly broke up in early 1997 while on tour in Bielefeld, Germany, decided it would be the best way to offer closure on the whole experience — on both a personal level and for their fans. "Texas Is The Reason did everything in broad strokes," explains guitarist Norman Brannon, "so breaking up when we did, quickly and silently, felt like an extension of that. The one thing we all agreed on, even back then, was that our last show should have been in New York City. We’ve had reunion offers in other states, but we turned them down. This show has been in the back of our minds for a long time."

TEXAS IS THE REASON was founded in late 1994 by Brannon, a former Shelter guitarist, and 108 drummer Chris Daly; bassist Scott Winegard and frontman Garrett Klahn rounded out the quartet. After the release of a three-song EP, TEXAS IS THE REASON became an underground smash. A split single with Samuel for the UK-based Simba label quickly followed before the band released their first and only full-length album, Do You Know Who You Are? — named after the last statement John Lennon allegedly heard before he died. Produced by Jawbox’s J. Robbins and released through Revelation Records, Do You Know Who You Are? brought major-label courtship and widespread visibility for TEXAS IS THE REASON, who were being hailed as the "next big thing" in the growing punk explosion on MTV. After issuing a final split single with through Jade Tree, and on the eve of signing with one of the major labels in 1997, intra-band tensions arising from these newfound pressures eventually caused the band to split.

Individual members moved towards various different musical projects over the years, with Garrett Klahn forming Solea and Daly co-founding the popular
indie outfit . Winegard started his own record label imprint, GrapeOS, and played with a band called the Americans, while Brannon went silent until 2001, resurfacing with , a project featuring former Far frontman Jonah Matranga.

With their past clearly behind them, the original members are excited to play for the right reasons again. "This is the first time in ten years that we’ve actually found ourselves living in the same city at the same time," Brannon says. "But ultimately, we wouldn’t be doing this if we didn’t think we could do it right. It’s that ‘broad strokes’ thing, really — we’re thinking of this as less of a concert and more of a spectacle."

Presale tickets are available between September 22-29 online only via or .
