Textures guitar player Bart Hennephof had the following to say about the upcoming “Frak The Gods” tour: Yes, finally we are able to do a tour in the U.S.! We are all very excited! Past years we have gotten a lot of response and messages from the U.S. fans telling us to come over. Finally we can fulfill their (and our own) wishes… and what better band to go on tour with than with Periphery! This tour is going to be a blast! We can’t wait to travel across the country and play shows throughout the States!
Textures recently finished recording their new album at Split Second Sound Studios in Amsterdam with producer Jochem Jacobs, who is also the band’s guitarist. The as-yet-untitled album is the follow-up to 2008’s “Silhouettes” and will feature the debut of new vocalist Daniel de Jongh, formerly of fellow Dutch metallers CiLiCe, to replace the spot vacated by former vocalist Eric Kalsbeek.
