TEXTURES headed back to Asia in 2012 and 2013, where the band played as headliner at the NH7-Weekender in India (Pune and Kolkata) and at the Silence Festival in Nepal. This also included the farewell show of ex-guitarist Jochem Jacobs at the show in Pune, where TEXTURES entered the stage with three guitarists for the first time in the history of the band. Besides that TEXTURES was there to play at these grand festivals, the band loves to discover the country as well. Due to the fact that the band has not yet released this material before, it has been molded in a 9:30 minute lasting Documentary-like Podcast for your viewing pleasure. All which you can see below. Enjoy!

*TEXTURES will also be touring this fall. More details below: … Read more

TEXTURES is 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 about Joe joining TEXTURES:

“It was a big setback for us to see Jochem leave TEXTURES. Jochem was a driving force behind the band from of the beginning and helped the band get to where it is right now. But Joe gives us more than enough reasons 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.


Now the announcement is out that Joe Tal is the new guitarist, there are already two shows which are confirmed and there to be announced. The first two shows of 2013 which will be announced are:

31-05: BUMA ROCKS, Doornroosje: Nijmegen
31-08: Rockstadt Extreme Fest Open Air, Risnov, Brasov, Romania
