Textures has announced that Joe Tal is the new guitarist that will replace Jochem Jacobs who left the band earlier this year to pursue other dreams. Joe Tal will make his live debut on a select number of shows this summer and the band has already announced some dates.
Joe Tal said about joining Textures: "I am really superexcited about this, it was a lot of fun doing the audition and jamming with the guys. It feels great to say I'm a part of the group now and I can't wait to actually get started."
The band said about their new guitarist: "It was a big setback for us to see Jochem leave Textures. Jochem was a driving force behind the band from of the beginning and helped the band get to where it is right now. But Joe gives us more than enough reasons to continue our journey with loads of new ideas and riffs. His diversity, personality, musical taste, the background of the band and of course his great technique were the reasons why we chose Joe to become our new guitarist. This makes us want to play shows and write new music even more than we already did!"
