Texas Is The Reason 'Alive Enough' (mini-documentary)
Published Feb 06, 2013Reunited '90s post-hardcore crew Texas Is the Reason are getting ready for a few mini-trips to support their impending discography set Do You Know Who You Are?: The Complete Collection, but in case you're nowhere near the North American tour dates, you can check out some live footage via a mini-documentary titled Alive Enough: A Texas Is the Reason Concert.
Director Steve Pedulla's 22-minute film features a candid conversation between guitarist Norman Brannon and vocalist/guitarist Garrett Klahn about the reunion, but also showcases some concert clips filmed last October at Brooklyn, NY's Music Hall of Williamsburg. Down below you'll find performances of the group's If It's Here When We get Back Its Ours 7-inch title track, it's anthemic, emo-styled B-side "Antique," and original Do You Know Who You Are? closing slow-ride "A Jack with One Eye."
While we're at it, you can sample both of the previously unreleased groovers ("Every Little Girl's Dream" and "When Rock 'n' Roll Was Just a Baby"), along with the rest of the new compendium, over at Billboard. The collection officially drops next Tuesday (February 12) via Revelation Records.
As previously reported, Texas Is the Reason have one Canadian gig lined up at Toronto's Lee's Palace on March 8. You can check out the rest of the show schedule here.
