Guitarist Joe Tal states: "It's been a long while since we released a guitar playthrough video, it's about time! To me this song represents the essence of the music of Textures; poly-rhythms, groove, a big epic chorus, tempo changes and Thrash metal style riffs. It's all there! Big thanks to fine people at Ibanez guitars." More...

Textures had this to say: "We're absolutely thrilled to be heading out on the 'Within The Horizon Tour' coming spring. It's been a while since we played our last show and we can't wait to get out there once more. Besides the pleasure of playing on our home soil, we'll also be entering France, Italy and Switzerland. We're looking forward to be seeing you all in April!" More...

Dutch progressive metallers Textures is about to release a musical diptych: "Phenotype - Genotype," which will be two new albums set up around one concept. The Dutch sextet is not a band to put out an album every year in a row. The group took almost 2.5 years to write and record albums no. 5 and 6.
"Music is no fast food! Details are crafted and re-crafted. Extra layers are created and stretched to form the ultimate tension span for years to last."
"Phenotype," the first album to be released on February 5, 2016 via Nuclear Blast, is a 60-minute long song-based album. Textures presents an eclectic overview of what modern metal has to offer. Catchy, innovative and progressive songs are what Textures stands for. The new virtuosos Uri Dijk (synth) and Joe Tal (guitar) deliver a harmonic vibe to the band's sound.
"Genotype," which will be released a year later, is a 45-minute long conceptual track. The root material of "Phenotype" is presented in this song, but in a totally different context as Textures goes out of the box: more proggy, more atmosphere and lots of extra layers to fill the last gaps left in this extensive double rollercoaster ride.

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
