Textures announces new guitarist
Dutch progressive/technical metallers Textures have announced the addition of guitarist Joe Tal (pictured below; Illucinoma) to the group's ranks.

Guitarist Jochem Jacobs left Textures in Janury in order to focus on his career as a record producer. He will stay involved with with the band behind the scenes and will continue producing Textures albums.

Comments Tal: "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."

Adds the band: "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!!"

Textures's latest Cd, "Dualism", was released on September 23, 2011 in Europe, South America, Asia and Australia and September 27 in North America. The Cd was recorded at Split Second Sound Studio in Amsterdam and was produced by Jacobs. The cover artwork was designed by former Textures frontman Eric Kalsbeek and the band's bass player Remko Tielemans.
