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!!”
IT’S TIME TO ROCK!!
Joe will make his live debut on a select number of shows this summer.
NEW SHOWS ANNOUNCED
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
As released earlier, the news came out that Jochem Jacobs left TEXTURES to focus on other priorities in life.
Although he will be dearly missed, TEXTURES has to focus on the future.
With that in mind the band placed an add to audition as the new guitarist for TEXTURES.
The idea was to send in a video of themselves playing along to a TEXTURES-song of their choice.
Over a hundred applicants from over the whole world sent in their tape! Most of them were amazing and it was a hard decision to pick just six guys out of all these videos.
But the band succeeded and chose some very high quality guitarists. The six guitarists got an invitation to come by the rehearsal room and do a live audition on the 23rd of February.
From that day TEXTURES has made a long and exclusive Audition Podcast which can be viewed down here. Who will it be??
Although we grief about the departure of Jochem, we have to look forward. Because of that we are announcing an audition for a new guitarist.
That means we’re giving you the opportunity to possibly play in TEXTURES!
