Texas Is the Reason was an emo band founded by former Shelter guitarist Norm Arenas and 108 drummer Chris Daly in 1994. A foundational quartet in the post-Sunny Day Real Estate movement of emo music, Texas Is the Reason played melodious but forceful rock music before disbanding in 1997. Norm Arenas (guitar), guitarist for the hardcore Hare Krishna band Shelter, formed Texas Is the Reason with friend and then fellow Hare Krishna devotee Chris Daly (drums), formerly of the band 108, which played music of a similar kind to Shelter's, some time in the early 1990s in New York City.
Texas Is the Reason was an American emo/post-hardcore band founded by former Shelter guitarist Norman Brannon and 108 drummer Chris Daly in 1994. They disbanded in 1997, and held brief reunions in 2006 and 2012–2013.
Produced by J. Robbins. Album Do You Know Who You Are? Back and to the Left Lyrics. This town was built on miles of hope And I dare you to give me one reason to stay And maybe I won't go away So far you've only dared me once And I think we know that's not even close enough Not enough for me to stay. It costs so much I know But I guess I need to know What it would have felt like to be right.
Far better than the follow-up full-length, the debut EP from Texas Is the Reason is a short but sweet portrait of a young band both at the top of its game and also helping to define a genre. Making "emo" a consumable form, this record is both boldly powerful and noticeably frail, without ever becoming a mockery of itself. Backed by the thunderous drums of future Jets to Brazil star Chris Daly and led by the impressive vocal strength of hardcore fixture Norm Arenas, Texas Is the Reason's approach is heavy as ever without sounding silly or contrived.
Texas is the Reason's debut-and only-was released in 1996, to relatively no attention at all, and Texas is the Reason broke up in 1997, a brief but tumultuous year after their debut, which is either a blessing or a tragedy. Did they break up before they created their own London Calling" Or did their brief period of greatness shine too brightly to last" The band members moved on to other random projects, previous band largely forgotten. Texas is the Reason's debut had certainly fallen by the wayside, to be washed and eroded away to obscurity. The album flows together exactly like a great album should. Sure, the upbeat, nearly poppy "Johnny On the Spot" works very well on its own, but it’s the way it flows into the slower and more emotional "The Magic Bullet Theory" is what makes the album work better together than, say, a Fall Out Boy album.
