When disbanding in 2018, Dutch Math Metal wizards TEXTURES left a significant hole in the global progressive metal community. However, after a break of 6 years, the pioneering Dutch metal six-piece has resurrected and announced their reunion with a new album and a return to the stages in 2024.
TEXTURES has made significant contributions to the music industry since their formation in 2001. One of the band's first achievements came in 2003 when they self-released their genre-defining debut album, "Polars." This full-length release quickly caught the attention of Listenable Records (Gojira, Soilwork), leading to its official re-release a year later.
With their do-it-yourself approach, TEXTURES not only produced their albums themselves, always took care of their own artwork, but also built multiple studios over the years to keep track with the band's progress.In 2011, TEXTURESgot signed to the roster of Nuclear Blast and released their two latest albums "Dualism" and "Phenotype" through the leading metal label.Throughout their career, they havehad the honor of sharing the stage with illustrious acts such as Meshuggah, Sepultura, Machine Head and The Dillinger Escape Plan and even saw bands like Gojira, Volbeat, Parkway Drive and Architects support them in their early years of their musical journey.
Additionally, they have toured alongside esteemed acts including Periphery, Amorphis, All That Remains and Arch Enemy, solidifying their influence on the modern metal scene. With their 3rd and 4th albums “Silhouettes” and “Dualism”, the combo's innovative and distinct sound came to the forefront when they were recognized as one of the first bands to develop the modern djent genre.
Their pioneering efforts have influenced other notable bands such as Periphery, Animals as Leaders and Tesseract, carving a path for a new wave of technical and heavy music.
Over the years, TEXTURES has garnered a devoted international fanbase. Especially in India, the band quickly reached great popularity, headlined festivals and performed in front of thousands of music enthusiasts. Yet of course, they also left an impact on the European scene, where they played renowned festivals including Hellfest (France), Lowlands (Netherlands), Graspop (Belgium), Tuska Metal Fest (Finland), BrutalAssault (Czech Republic) and many more.
Their electrifying live shows quickly solidified their status as a must-see act at major metal festivals worldwide - and now, the band returns to claim their spot again.
