Textures Guitarist Jumps Ship
Posted by Chris Harris on January 12, 2013 in Departures, NewsAdmittedly, I don’t really listen to Textures. Am I missing out?
Either way, I know a lot of you righteous bad-asses do like Textures, so I feel it necessary to inform you the band’s founding guitarist, Jochem Jacobs, has announced his departure from the band.
“Ladies and gentlemen, it has been a bit quiet around the Textures camp lately,” reads a statement from the band.
“It is for a valid reason: After 12 years being a big part of the band, Jochem Jacobs has decided to leave Textures. It is sad to see him leave, but we respect his decision fully.”
The band offers no reason for Jochem “Sockem” Jacobs’ sudden decision to quit.
“Since the very start of Textures, Jochem has helped the band get to where it is right now and his input will always be part of our music,” says the band.
For his part, Jacobs merely said “my priorities changed gradually during the years” and that “the time has come for me to start doing more other stuff. There are so many things in life that gives me goosebumps!”
He will be producing, it seems.
So that happened.
