You can check out our interview with Texas In July here. The band is getting ready to start the Of Mice & Men U.S. Headliner this week.
From The InterviewYou know, its been hard for us, and I think even on the new record its still struggle and were working towards something greater and unique. Weve often been compared to many bands that are way bigger than us, ones weve been inspired by. Even those bands that were inspired by have other bands that they themselves were also inspired by, and so on. I think this record we put out have experimental hints and tastes of what we really build upon, and its really hard to create something because theres so many bands in the scene...

M.I.A.'s new album, Matangi has been postponed until April due to "excess positivity."
From The InterviewIt's due in April, which is the Tamil new year-- April 15-- and I'm still working on it. I thought I'd finished it. I finished it and then I handed the record in, like a couple of months ago. At the moment, I've been told it's too positive. So we're having a bit of an issue at the label. They're like, 'You need to darken it up a bit.' I don't know what it is but as soon as I work that out... I'm taking my time to decide what they mean. It's an interesting one for me. It's like, 'We just built you up as the public enemy no. 1, and now you're coming out with all this positive stuff.
