Dutch progressive metal band TEXTURES proudly announce their first ever North American tour this coming Fall with PERIPHERY, THE HUMAN ABSTRACT, and THE CONTORTIONIST. The tour will coincide with the release of TEXTURES’ fourth studio album and Nuclear Blast debut. U.S. and select Canadian show dates will be announced in the next few weeks. 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 highly successful & critically lauded 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.
