TesseracT Share Footage Of “Nocturne” From “P O R T A L S” Livestream Concert

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.”

TesseracT Announce “P O R T A L S” Cinematic Live Experience

TesseracT have announced a special cinematic live experience, which they are calling “P O R T A L S.” The virtual event will stream on December 12 and tickets can be purchased at portals.show.

Bassist Amo Williams commented:

“‘P O R T A L S‘ is a celebration of our love of performing. Each act is a still from an ever-evolving musical personality. Each song is the conversation you have with old friends when you meet up for the first time in ages and you pick up exactly where you left off. This year has presented us all with an unusual set of barriers to surmount.

The limitations of not being able to tour and the absence of shows has focused us towards the concept of creating the ultimate tour production, within the ultimate TesseracT show. Where we explore every facet of our music, and every story we have told, and in doing so create new stories and in some cases commit evolved versions to a medium that will outlast the moment.”

Drummer Jay Postones will be unable to take part in the event due to COVID-19 restrictions, so Mike Maylan (Monuments) will be filling in.

TesseracT will be releasing a 4LP+2CD box set edition of their 2013 album “Altered State” on November 6. Pre-orders are available HERE. The band commented:

“For the band, we always felt like we hit a perfect balance with the presentation on ‘Altered State‘. And that the concept was made even more striking in a gatefold vinyl package. There’s just something very tactile and real about that iteration. We’re all really looking forward to it being available in that format again.”

TesseracT To Release “Live In Lockdown” Session Tomorrow

TesseracT Premiere “Juno” Music Video

TesseracT have premiered a new video for their song “Juno.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Sonder”

Vocalist Dan Tomplins said the following:

“Writing the lyrics for this album was a cathartic experience and I feel that ‘Juno‘ is probably the epitome of ‘Sonder‘. We wanted to create a video that symbolised the realisation of the constraints that are placed on life. ‘Juno‘ is the embodiment of that feeling.

Having worked with Dark Fable Media multiple times, I have grown to love what they do and how they operate. Tesseract have wanted to work with them for a long time now, so this video was a real joy to work on.”

Bassist Amos Williams added:

“Technically, this was intense as we filmed everything at double speed to get a weird fantasy vibe that was still in time when replayed at normal speed. Of all the tracks we could have chosen to try this technique, ‘Juno‘ is not the easiest. But, we think the results show for themselves it was worth it!”
