Within the broad microcosm that is music whose origins date back to the days of early punk, the genre most often confused and unfairly attached to anything moderately aggressive and remotely emotive is unequivocally, post-hardcore. As talk of a full-length album began to spark, and during the same sessions that produced their self-titled EP, Texas is the Reason recorded a fourth track that would go-on to appear as the b-side of a 7-inch split with Samuel, a heavier, albeit lesser known, female-fronted post-hardcore band from Pennsylvania

The name "Texas Is the Reason" is lifted from a Misfits song, entitled "Bullet". Releasing three songs on an EP, Texas Is the Reason became an underground smash and helped usher in an era of similarly motivated and styled emo bands. They then released a split single with The Promise Ring through Jade Tree.

Texas Is the Reason imploded at a time when they were being touted as the "next big thing" in the wake of the punk explosion on MTV. They were one of the roots of the then healthy post-Sunny Day Real Estate-core tree, crafting melodious yet forceful indie rock, or emocore, with finesse, sensitivity, and a bit of attitude. Shortly after releasing one of Revelation Records' highest-selling albums, the New York City-based quartet disbanded on the eve of signing with one of several major labels courting them in 1997.

The now defunct Texas Is The Reason (named after a line in the song "Bullet" by the Misfits) have left the world with their sole full-length recording, "Do You Know Who You Are?" (named after the last words John Lennon supposedly heard before he died). Formed from the ashes of various hardcore bands, TITR was a venue for Garrett Klahn, Scott Winegard, Norm Arenas, and Chris Daly to create more personal music and shed the viciousness of hardcore. With the next three songs you can easily see how this band has influenced the increasingly popular emo genre.

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.
