Textures set to return to the UK and France and announce additional Dutch dates

We are excited to announce that we will return to the UK and France this fall to tour together with our friends in The Ocean and the talented Aliases (UK only).

It has been more than two years since we have toured the UK and France and we feel it’s time to return to these wonderful countries!

Next to that we are also happy to announce that we will play a number of additional Dutch dates. These dates we will be supported by the amazing Face Tomorrow and the upcoming Steak no. 8. … Read more

We are ecstatic to announce our first ever North American tour. To coincide with the release of our fourth album we will join PERIPHERY, THE HUMAN ABSTRACT and THE CONTORTIONIST for a full tour of Northern America which will take place September 2nd through October 8th.

It has been a dream of ours to tour the US and Canada and finally meet our American fans.

Now we finally will!

Dates will be announced in the coming weeks!

We have just released our new video podcast. This episode gives a behind the scenes look at the guitar recording process for our upcoming album.

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! “

Our new album will see its release this fall, and we will hit the road in September to support it!

We are excited to announce that on the 23rd October we will have our Dutch release party at the Mezz in Breda. We chose the Mezz in Breda as it is close to the area where we originally started. Full circle!

This evening we will be supported by a very special guest which we can’t announce just yet and the talented When All Light Dies who will be celebrating the release of their debut album during this evening.

This together with our appearance at EuroBlast festival in Cologne will mark the European release weekend of our upcoming album.

A lot and we mean a LOT of news to follow in the coming months!!

Jochem had the following to say: “WOW! I’m really amazed by all this, I don’t really see this as a personal award only, it’s also for the band!!! rock!!!! “
