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!”

TesseracT Premiere “King” Music Video

TesseracT have premiered a new video for their new song “King.” This track is from the band’s new album “Sonder,” which will be released on April 20.

Bassist Amos Williams said the following about the video:

“We have been very lucky to work with two cinematographers of such vision and quality as Kyle [Kadow] and Steven [Cleavland]. We gave them free reign with the creation of the first story board. They chose to explore the theme of claustrophobia and how fear can control our lives — using a luminary figure as a beacon of hope and escape for the characters.”

Vocalist Daniel Tompkins also added the following about the song:

“Far too often we find ourselves lead into conflict and inner turmoil. Life is surely a battle, history has a bad habit of repeating itself, and when living with the constraints of an onerous life, it’s easy to overlook the greatest gift we’ve ever received: life itself.”

TesseracT Premiere New Song “Luminary”, Reveal Details For New Album “Sonder”

TesseracT have premiered a new song titled “Luminary.” This track is from the band’s new album “Sonder,” which will be released on April 20. According to vocalist Daniel Tompkins the song is “conceptually exploring a deep and devouring sense of insignificance, which ties into the overall theme and meaning behind ‘Sonder’.”

“Sonder” Track Listing:

01. “Luminary”
02. “King”
03. “Orbital”
04. “Juno”
05. “Beneath My Skin / Mirror Image”
06. “Smile”
07. “The Arrow”

The effort will be available digitally, as well as on CD, a 2-CD deluxe package featuring a binaural album bonus disc, vinyl in multiple color variants, and picture disc.

The group produced the binaural version, which offers a 360-listening experience designed by Klang: Fabrik for headphones listening. Bassist Amos Williams said the following about that:

“The concept is to push past the restrictions of a stereo headphone mix and create an accurate ‘3D’ space in which positioning outside of the normal Left Right axis can occur. This is something that every artist that uses in ear monitors on stage wishes to recreate; the real and accurate positioning of instruments. We immediately felt that this technology could be applicable to us in the studio. TesseracT loves to bring what it does in the studio to the stage, but this time it’s experimenting with bringing a live element to the studio.”
