Dutch metal act TEXTURES have parted ways with singer Pieter Verpaalen due to "musical disagreements.""We, as well as any band, stumble upon difficult choices on the path we walk," the group write on their web site. "During our final conversations with Pieter, it was hard for us to keep musical and personal elements separated from each other. Together we've had a really cool time during gigs and in the rehearsal room. The five of us are convinced that Pieter will continue his musical career and easily find something else." Commented Pieter: "I'm REALLY disappointed. But I have no choice but to accept [the band's] decision. The situation is as it is. On a musical level I'm not about to give in though. I'm certainly going to look for other musicians and as from now I'm available for other projects. Possibly, I'll be able to continue in the style I have in mind myself." TEXTURES recently inked a deal with France's Listenable Records. The group's self-produced debut CD, "Polars" — originally released through the group's own label — will be remastered and re-issued via Listenable on February 23. As a special bonus, a video clip will be added to a limited-edition version of the CD. The group, who have previously opened for the likes of SEPULTURA, MACHINE HEAD and THE CROWN, have received extremely enthusiastic reviews in major magazines like Aardshock and Oor, among others.
