Riff Magazine has uploaded video footage of TEXTURES' performance at this year's Ilha do Ermal festival, which was held August 28-30 in Vieira do Minho, Portugal. The 10-minute clip, which can be viewed below, also includes an interview with the band.
TEXTURES will make its Indian live debut at the Deccan Rock Festival on December 5, 2009 at Palace grounds in Bangalore, India. Co-headlining the event will be AMON AMARTH.
The band is excited to finally play India as there have been a lot of rumors the past year of the group touring this metal-loving country. This will be TEXTURES' last performance before hitting the studio to record a new album, which will be released in the fall 2010 on Nuclear Blast.
TEXTURES took India by storm earlier this fall in an unprecedented manner. Despite having never setting foot in the country, and without ever officially releasing a record there, the band was featured on the cover of the nation's biggest rock magazine, the Rock Street Journal (see image below). The mag contained a five-page interview with the band as well as a poster and a CD with three TEXTURES tracks. Within three days, every single one of the 50,000 copies of the magazine were sold out, and a re-print of the magazine was set to hit the shelves to feed the demand.
The vinyl version of "Silhouettes", the latest album from TEXTURES, was released in November 2008 through Garden of Exile Records. The LP was limited to 500 copies and pressed on 180-gram vinyl. The artwork was printed on extra-thick cardboard gatefold jacket with golden foil print.
"Silhouettes" was released in North America on September 30, 2008 via Listenable/Koch.
The album entered the Dutch chart at position No. 100. This was the band's first chart showing ever.
"Silhouettes" was recorded at Split Second Sound with Jochem Jacobs in the producer's chair. Jacobs previously oversaw the recording process for TEXTURES' last CD, "Drawing Circles".
