Dutch progressive metallers Textures are excited to announce that guitarist Joe Tal will replace Jochem Jacobs, who left the band earlier this year. A video announcement about the lineup change can be found below.
Joe had to say this about joining Textures: "I am really super excited 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 also issued the following statement: "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 as follows:
31-05: BUMA ROCKS, Doornroosje: Nijmegen, The Netherlands
