TesseracT have shared a new live video for their song “Nocturne.” The footage is taken from the band’s December 2020 “P O R T A L S” livestream concert. As previously reported, that set will be released as a new live album/film on August 27.
Bassist Amos Williams commented:
“‘Nocturne‘ has been a firm fan and band favorite since it was released ahead of the Altered State album cycle. As such, we threw a lot into the performance, which was matched by our production team, who really pushed the envelope with what they achieved during this track. The laser effects and lighting is powerful and emotive, and Rich‘s cinematography really hits the mark.
Every tour produces a slightly different version of this track, as our mindset waxes and wanes, but this version of ‘Nocturne‘ is a real high mark for us, we feel; it was just so much fun to perform after not performing it for a year. So, why didn’t we close the show with this song if it was so fun?
The thought did cross our minds — we figured everybody would want that. But we wanted to sit outside our comfort zone with an ‘encore’ of real deep cuts and fan favorites. Thus, ‘Nocturne (P O R T A L S)‘ was the perfect handover between the desired and expected, as well as an excellent guide for everyone as we turned to face the weird and wonderful direction of the final act.”
