|Jeden z nejzajímavějších hlasů na poli současného evropského metalu, vokalista progressivců Textures opustil kapelu kvůli rodině a práci. Toto je jeho prohlášení:
“Dear fans & friends,
I decided to quit Textures. My life changed, priorities shifted. I can’t cope with the heavy touring and the time investment anymore. I need to focus on my job and family. I need to take a few steps back. I’ve had six beautiful years with the band, did loads of amazing shows, made tons of new friends and created some mind-blowing music. I’m going to miss the guys, and of course you, the fans. I know Textures will continue to conquer the world and give you all great, heavy and awesome music. I wish my successor all the best.
I will keep on making music, but something totally different, much more low-profile. Maybe we will meet again. Eric out”
