TEXTURES: New Video Interview Available

Eric Faber of Imhotep conducted an interview with vocalist Eric Kalsbeek of the Dutch progressive metal band TEXTURES after the group's September 25, 2008 concert in Oslo, Norway. Watch the chat in two parts below.

TEXTURES will film a video for the song "Awake" from the band's current album "Silhouettes". The clip will be directed by Dutch filmmaker Rob Hodselaar who worked on numerous documentaries as well as videos for Dutch artists as GEM and ROOM ELEVEN. The production will be handled by David Leite from Hazazah.

For the video, the band received a generous grant from the Dutch TAX Videoclip Fund which will give the band the opportunity to film a video exactly as they had in mind, with minimal budget restrictions.

The clip will be shot beginning of October and it is expected to premiere at the end of October/early November.

TEXTURES had its latest album, "Silhouettes", released in North America on September 30 via Listenable/Koch. The band is planning to tour the U.S. in support of the CD during the first quarter of 2009.

"Silhouettes" recently entered the Dutch album chart at position No. 100. This is 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".
