Metalcore group Texas In July have announced that following a run of farewell tour dates, they will be calling it quits.
“I've had the best times of my life during the last eight years with this band,” shares drummer Adam Gray. “From years of playing for little to no audience – to stages and massive crowds all over the world I thought I would never experience. I've met some of the coolest people and am so thankful for all of the friendships I've made. It's time to really dedicate my time to improving at my instrument and getting back to the drawing board. Thank you to all my fans and friends who have supported me and will continue to support me through whatever is next. I hope you see you all one last time on our European farewell tour. Thank you!”
Gray has been nominated for the Best Drummer Award at the 2015 APMAs. Cast your vote now!
“To all of our European fans and friends, it breaks our hearts to say that this coming June will be our final appearance overseas in Europe,” adds fellow founding member and bassist Ben Witkowski. “We are extremely excited to share these last moments with you all, since you have been such a huge part of the band. We began touring in Europe before Texas In July had ever even played a show in California or any other western states/North American territories. With that being said, it is safe to say that traveling to your countries have always been, and forever will be, one of the most memorable things for us all. Thank you for giving us a home away from home all these years, it has been an absolute pleasure rocking with such a metal part of the world. We love you, see you in June for final Texas In July European tour. Let's make it the best one we ever had.”
