Texas In July, Structures, Myka,Relocate, Elitist and All Who Defy at The Tequila Rock Room, Wednesday

"Defying any definitions of age, Ephrata, P.A.'s Texas in July have already toured the country and back, sharing stages with everyone from The Devil Wears Prada and Every Time I Die to August Burns Red and Maylene and the Sons of Disaster – all before the entire band had graduated from high school."  "Structures is a five piece etal/progressive/hardcore band hailing from Toronto, Ontario. With members aging from only 19-20, the band wrote and recorded a five song EP which was self released April 6th. Structures maintains a strong work ethic combined with a positive outlook on the music industry pushing them into a leading role in the Canadian music scene ." "Entering Phoenix's Chango Studios in July 2013 with producer Cameron Mizell [Memphis Mayfire, A Skylit Drive], Myka, Relocate cut twelve tracks that segue from gnashing technical guitars into immediately irresistible refrains. Electronic flourishes color the sound at points, while every element falls into an impenetrable groove reminiscent of Deftones or Sleeping with Sirens. It's easy to feel that kinetic stomp on the first single "Doublespeak".  "The concept of the release is inspired by the Planet Earth Documentary series just as our prior release Caves was. I think people will recognize Earth as being mature sequel of our last release." Guitarist Julian Rodriguez of L.A. based band, Elitist talks about the band's upcoming EP Earth being released this October. Being tagged as a progressive Djent band Elitist have been delivering technical and melodic metal that is both epic and shredding since the release of their debut EP Caves in 2010. Local Support with: All Who Defy
