TEXTURES Breaks Up, Cancels Releasing Its Next Album

No more Genotype album in 2017… that sucks.

No more Genotype album in 2017... that sucks.

After five albums and 16 years together as a band, Textures has announced that it's coming to an end due to "personal motives." Textures remains fairly vague about why it's breaking up, but the band stresses that this is a decision that it did not take lightly.

Textures has also announced that the second half of its double album, Genotype, which is the followup to 2016's Phenotype, will not be released… which really sucks. The band sort of leaves it open-ended though, so maybe we'll get Genotype at some point in the far future?

"There is no easy way to say this, so here it is: Textures comes to an end.

"Personal motives have led to this decision and it has not been made in haste. These personal reasons made it harder to be the productive band Textures always has been in the past and which this band needs to be. Without this dedication Textures would merely be a shell of what it used to be.

"Break-ups are never easy and always bring difficulties. Unfortunately we have to announce that our anticipated 6th album 'Genotype' will not be released and so there will be no double album. At least not for the coming years…

"The break-up of Textures doesn't mean that there is any hardship within the band. We still have a strong connection with current and former members and this decision won't lead to any tensions whatsoever. Furthermore the individual bandmembers will continue to make music and persue new musical endeavours. Keep your eyes and ears open…

"Thanks to all the friends, fellow musicians and other colleagues we have had the pleasure to meet along the way. And of course special thanks to all the fans who have supported us throughout the years. It is your dedication, appreciation and continued presence at our shows all over the world that made this journey one to remember for a lifetime."

Farewell Textures, and thanks for all the music. Be sure to catch Textures on its final tour this November with Exivious.

Good grief, I can't wait to say bye to this stinky year. Too many deaths, too many tears shed, and too many electoral college...


Phenotype presents listeners with enough variety to keep them listening, and more than enough energy to want to headbang to. With a strong emphasis...
