TEXTURES Named 'Most Promising Act'

June 24, 2004

Dutch progressive metallers TEXTURES (Listenable Records) have won the Essent Award for "most promising act". As a result of this recognition, the band will be granted a considerable promotional budget and will perform at the Netherlands' largest festival, Lowlands (August 20-22). This show will be broadcast on MTV Netherlands in the first week of September. The band will receive the prestigious award today, June 24.

In other news, TEXTURES bass player Dennis Aarts has been diagnosed with pneumothorax (air around the lung),and was hospitalized last Sunday. He has to stay in the hospital for at least two weeks, and thus won't be able to play for the rest of the band's "7 Days Of Insomnia" tour. 21-year-old Robin Zielhorst (known from the band IN-TENSION and senior student at the Rock Academy in Tilburg, The Nehterlands) is going to function as Dennis' replacement.

With drummer Stef Broks as a coach, Robin Zielhorst has studied from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. for the last two days to learn all TEXTURES songs in time for their gig with DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN at 013 in Tilburg tonight. Robin will also be plays at the shows with MESHUGGAH and MORBID ANGEL this week. All four bands are also scheduled to appear at this year's Fury Fest in Le Mans, France. TEXTURES will embark on a full European tour with Australian metallers ALCHEMIST (Relapse Records) in October.
