Textures announce new frontman

Having recently lost vocalist Eric Kalsbeek who quit the band to focus on his family earlier this year,Textures have announced that Daniel de Jongh, former Cilice frontman will replace him.

Daniel will make his live debut this summer, details of which are to be announced soon.

Daniel had to say this about joining Textures:

“I am truly honored to have been asked to replace Eric as vocalist for TEXTURES. TEXTURES is a standout band and is a band which I’ve listened to the last couple of years, like so many other metal-fans out there. Although it was a pretty tough decision to leave my former band CILICE, this was an offer I just couldn’t refuse. The guys in TEXTURES are just a great bunch of people and it is clear that  there is and will be loads of inspiration for the next years to come. I also know how much Eric was respected by the fans and I hope that I can assure you guys out there that I will replace him with as much dignity as he did for TEXTURES the last 6 years.  All I can say is that we as TEXTURES are ready to rock everyone out there and that the anticipation for the next album can be withhold. We are in writing process at the time and I can reveal that it is going to be kick-ass as always!!

We will see you guys soon!!”

The band about Daniel joining Textures:

“It was really hard for us to part ways with Eric. Emotionally and musically. But Daniel gives us more than enough reasons to prolong our career, more hyped up than ever before. His experience, personality, musical taste and of course his awesome vocal skills make us see the future like a first spring morning after a severe winter-darkness.”
