Houston's Die Young (TX) first rallied together in the winter of 2002 as simply Die Young, a determined and passionate crew spouting sociopolitical hardcore that took direct inspiration from bands like Catharsis, Integrity, Black Flag, and Trial, in addition to philosophers like Chomsky and Nietzsche. Die Young's lineup rotated a lot over the years, with the most consistent members being frontman the Rev White Devil and drummer Rynearson. The band released two 7"s in 2003 -- Songs for the Converted appeared that spring, followed by Confession of a Petty Thief that fall. Both releases were then gathered together (along several new tracks) into the May 2004 album The Message, released through Immigrant Sun Records. The EP Survival Instinct followed a year later, as did a split 7" with Orange County's 7 Generations (Surprise Attack Records). When Die Young returned from a summer 2005 tour, however, the guys found cease-and-desist letters waiting for them in the mail courtesy of a California band with the same name. The two groups eventually settled with the Houston crew adopting "TX" after their moniker to differentiate themselves. As was their nature, Die Young (TX) continued to tour relentlessly all across the world, notably venturing to oft-neglected places beyond the contiguous United States like Alaska, eastern Asia, South and Central America, the Caribbean, and more. The group's hard work did not go unnoticed, and in July 2006, Die Young (TX) signed a deal with Eulogy Recordings. An early 2007 split with Long Island metallic hardcore upstarts Invade led into the March release of the band's Eulogy debut, Graven Images. ~ Corey Apar
