Over the course of three albums, Texas in July have built up a sizable fan base and made the Pennsylvania band one of the more promising up and coming metalcore bands. You’ve might have already gotten a chance to hear the band’s new singer JT Cavey via the video for “Broken Soul.” With their fourth album, Bloodwork, out on September 16th, they’re now streaming a new song from the album. “Sweetest Poison” is one of the heavier songs we’ve heard from the band, and if the whole album sounds this aggressive, it’s going to surprise a lot of people. Even though there’s a melodic chorus, it’s still heavy. Here’s what guitarist Chris Davis had to say about the song:
“‘Sweetest Poison’ is a perfect representation of all that ‘Bloodwork’ has to offer wrapped up in one song,” says Texas In July guitarist Chris Davis. “When writing albums in the past, we felt trapped into certain guidelines as far as what a Texas In July song needed to sound like, which was something we wanted to break free of this time around. While this song still sounds like the Texas In JulyY our fans expect to hear, it features a bunch of new elements for us. JT‘s vocal performance on this song is one of my favorites on this album, and he really shows just how dynamic and wide of a range he has!”
Bloodwork will be released on September 16th on Equal Vision Records. It can be preordered here.
