DUTCH METALLERS TEXTURES ANNOUNCE NEW GUITARIST

March 20th, 2013

Dutch progressive metallers TEXTURES are excited to announce that Joe Tal will replace Jochem Jacobs who left the band earlier this year.

Joe had to say this about joining TEXTURES:

“I am really superexcited about this, it was a lot of fun doing the audition and jamming with the guys. It feels great to say I’m a part of the group now and I can’t wait to actually get started.”

The band’s official comment:

“It was a big setback for us to see Jochem leave TEXTURES. Jochem was a driving force behind the band from the beginning and helped the band get to where we are right now. But Joe gives us more than enough reason to continue our journey with loads of new ideas and riffs. His diversity, personality, musical taste, the background of the band and of course his great technique were the reasons why we chose Joe to become our new guitarist. This makes us want to play shows and write new music even more than we already did!!”

Joe will make his live debut on a select number of shows this summer. Those new dates are listed below:

31-05: BUMA ROCKS, Doornroosje: Nijmegen, The Netherlands

31-08: Rockstadt Extreme Fest Open Air, Risnov, Brasov, Romania

Here is the link to the video announcing the addition of Joe Tal:

TEXTURES DEBUTS MUSIC VIDEO FOR “REACHING HOME”

September 15th, 2011

Progressive technical metallers TEXTURES have released the music video for “Reaching Home,” the first single from their upcoming album Dualism, via the band’s YouTube page.

 

“Reaching Home” was shot on the island of Lanzarote (part of The Canary Islands) off the coast of Morocco and was directed by TEXTURES bass player Remko Tielemans together with the help of Kunststoff Media.

 

States the band: “It took us quite some blood, sweat, and tears to make this video, but it was really rewarding to be able to do it ourselves with the total dedication and support from our colleagues at Kunststoff.  Another DIY project in the books!  Hope you guys and girls like it!”

Dualism will be released on September 23rd in Europe, South America, Australia & Asia and on September 27th in North America. The album was recorded at Split Second Sound Studios in Amsterdam with TEXTURES guitarist & producer Jochem Jacobs.

Pre-order bundles with a variety of t-shirt designs to choose from can be purchased from IndieMerch.com.  All Indie Merch pre-order bundles will be automatically entered into a raffle to win a TEXTURES Mayones guitar.

TEXTURES: STEF BROKS WINS ‘BEST DRUMMER’ IN TWO CATEGORIES

September 1st, 2011

New Album, Dualism, Hits Stores on September 27th, 2011 in North America

 

Catch TEXTURES on the road with Periphery, The Human Abstract, and The Contortionist – Tour Kicks off this Friday, September 2nd

TEXTURES drummer Stef Broks has been voted ‘Best Dutch Metal Drummer’ and ‘Best Dutch Drummer’ overall by the readers of the popular Dutch drum magazine Slagwerkkrant. An awards show to celebrate this achievement will take place in the beginning of September.  This is the first time in the magazine’s history that a specific metal drummer has won both awards.

“This is really bizarre. I’ve never considered myself a drummer’s drummer,” states Stef Broks. “Of course I practiced a lot on drums, but not [Virgil] Donati-style. Most of the practicing happens on my knees and… in my head 24/7, creating rhythmic and song ideas.  I am a reader of Slagwerkkrant since I was 9 years old, playing along with Yes and old U2 songs. Winning these awards is really flattering, but doesn’t mean I don’t want to make progression anymore.  On the contrary!  Thanks to you all!”
Recently, Stef’s first play-through video for the song ‘Singularity’ was released by the American drum webzine Sickdrummer.com and can be viewed now at Sick Drummer’s YouTube channel. ‘ Singularity’ is a track from the forthcoming TEXTURES album Dualism, which is set to hit stores on September 23rd in Europe, South America, Asia & Australia and September 27th in North America via Nuclear Blast.  Dualism can be pre-ordered for $10.00 from Nuclear Blast USA’s webstore; pre-order bundles that include band t-shirts can be purchased from IndieMerch.com.  All Indie Merch pre-order bundles will be automatically entered into a raffle to win a TEXTURES Mayones guitar. Fans can stream the new track ‘Reaching Home’ at RevolverMag.com, and listen to ‘Singularity’ on the band’s Facebook page.

 

If you are located in the New Jersey or New York City area, make sure to be at tonight’s official listening party for Dualism. The band is confirmed to be in attendance, so head over and throw back a few with the guys and listen to the new record in full!  Sponsored by MetalSucks.net, the listening party will begin at 9pm at Idle Hands Bar, located at 25 Avenue B (Downstairs) in Manhattan.

 

TEXTURES will kick off their first-ever North American tour with Periphery, The Human Abstract, and The Contortionist this Friday in Baltimore, Maryland at the Otto Bar. See below for a full listing of upcoming tour dates.

TEXTURES: IN-STUDIO VIDEO UPDATE

May 28th, 2011
Textures

Textures

An in-studio video update by Dutch technical metal band TEXTURES is now available for viewing on YouTube.  This episode gives a behind-the-scenes look at Day 8 of the guitar recording sessions at Split Second Sound in Amsterdam with producer/TEXTURES guitarist Jochem Jacobs for the band’s upcoming fourth studio album.  Jacobs is also responsible for the production on the band’s previous albums.

Guitarist Bart Hennephof had the following to say about the recording process:

“This might be the biggest thing we have done so far, especially guitar-wise. We really used every piece of gear – every guitar, amp, cabinet and effect – that was available to us at Split Second Sound studio, to get the right sounds for all the different parts of the album.  It’s a very tough process; we have been tracking guitar for weeks now, but finally the end is in sight!  Bass, synths and vocals still need to be done, and those are being recorded right now.  The pieces are coming together.  This album is growing beyond control!  Can’t wait to get on the road with this!”

The as-yet-untitled and follow-up to 2008’s Silhouettes album will be released this fall.

Upcoming TEXTURES tour dates:

June 4, 2011    NF Festival                 LA GARRIGA, BARCELONA, SPAIN        (with Hatesphere)

July 16, 2011   Day Of Decay 2011   AALBORG, DENMARK                               (with Scar Symmetry)

Oct. 22, 2011  EUROBLAST              COLOGNE, GERMANY                               (German release show)

Oct. 23, 2011  MEZZ                         BREDA, THE NETHERLANDS                   (Dutch release show)

 

TEXTURES’ 2003 debut album, Polars, received worldwide critical acclaim and the band went on to receive an Essent Award for “Most Promising Act” in 2004 in their native Holland.  Their 2006 sophomore album, Drawing Circles, was their true breakthrough and solidified TEXTURES’ status in the annuls of the early djent movement.

TEXTURES ENTERS THE STUDIO TO RECORD FOURTH ALBUM

January 27th, 2011

Extreme progressive technical metal band TEXTURES have started recording their fourth album at Split Second Sound studios in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.  The album will be produced by TEXTURES’ guitar player Jochem Jacobs, who was also responsible for the production of TEXTURES’ previous albums.

Jochem had the following to say about the new recordings:

“It’s all really exciting!  This album is really going to express where and what we are these days… and that’s a good thing.  We’ve been through a lot lately, especially the last year.  Now with some new air and fresh ideas, we finally reached the point that we are actually quite confident in the new material. Sometimes you just have to crawl through the mud first to get to dry grounds.  We are in the middle of the pre-production now, getting our asses in gear to create this baby.  It’s kinda cool to see this band grow more and more and to continue this musical journey that we’ve been on for 10 years!  Let’s make this thing heavy!!!”

A Fall 2011 release is expected through Nuclear Blast Records for the untitled new album.  It is the follow-up to 2008’s Silhouettes.
