Textures breaking up

Wednesday, May 17, 2017 5:41 AM PT


After five studio albums and roughly 15 years together, Dutch progressive metal act Textures has called it quits. Notably, they have cancelled the release of their sixth album, Genotype. However, the band will embark on a final European tour before disbanding (dates below). Here's the official word:

"There is no easy way to say this, so here it is: Textures comes to an end.

"Personal motives have led to this decision and it has not been made in haste. These personal reasons made it harder to be the productive band Textures always has been in the past and which this band needs to be. Without this dedication Textures would merely be a shell of what it used to be.

"Break-ups are never easy and always bring difficulties. Unfortunately we have to announce that our anticipated 6th album 'Genotype' will not be released and so there will be no double album. At least not for the coming years...

"The break-up of Textures doesn't mean that there is any hardship within the band. We still have a strong connection with current and former members and this decision won't lead to any tensions whatsoever. Furthermore the individual bandmembers will continue to make music and persue new musical endeavours. Keep your eyes and ears open...

"Thanks to all the friends, fellow musicians and other colleagues we have had the pleasure to meet along the way. And of course special thanks to all the fans who have supported us throughout the years. It is your dedication, appreciation and continued presence at our shows all over the world that made this journey one to remember for a lifetime."

No idea why they are going out with just one show a month. Is the 11th symbolic or something to the band?

In Europe, they have 30 months in a year.
This is one of the main reasons Brexit left the exit

there is a reason my ancestors crossed the atlantic. To escape the tyranny of mad kings who would change the number of months per year. In America we only have 12 per year and we like it that way. IF YOU DONT LIKE IT GET THE FUCJ OUT

Damn this sucks! Always felt their music is pretty fresh. Gonna keep an eye out for whatever the singer and drummer work on. Also anyone cracking jokes about any band's popularity, is really just showing off how narrow their scope is, and likely how shallow their taste is lol. Joke's on you plebs
