Dutch progressive metallers TEXTURES have posted a new video podcast featuring an interview with the band's new frontman, Daniel de Jongh (ex-CILICE). Watch the clip below.
Commented the group: "It has been quiet the past few months in the TEXTURES camp as we have mainly been focusing on writing a new album, building a new rehearsal room and preparing for a few summer festivals with our new singer Daniel de Jongh.
"We shot our new podcast during our rehearsals with Daniel and the large amount of hours it took building a new rehearsal room."
Keyboard player Richard Rietdijk left TEXTURES in April to pursue other interests.
