    The trio chat in detail about how the four tracks, originally taken from the 'Polaris' album, have been completely re-imagined by the band. Different arrangement set-ups led to new writing and the detail in the vocal nuances coming through.

    Featuring four tracks taken from the band's 2015 studio album, Polaris, and re-imagined by the band’s long time live producer and sound engineer Aidan O’Brien, Errai is available to pre-order for 16th September 2016.

    Dan Tompkins - “It's been fantastic to re-visit & re-work the vocals to some of the Polaris tracks from a different angle and with the benefit of time and space. The normal process of writing TesseracT songs starts with the creation of the music followed by the lyrical content; this time Acle and Aidan have stripped away the music and re-created the songs based around the vocals. As a result this has allowed much more breathing space between both and also highlighted much more detail in the performance."

    What the press are saying about Polaris :

    Metal Hammer 9/10 “start to finish, Polaris is affecting, captivating and bloody gorgeous”
    Prog Magazine “‘Bold and brilliant. This might be their best album to date’
    Rock Sound 8/10 – ‘Electrifying progressive music’
    Classic Rock - ‘Polaris is pure confidence converted into sound’
    Revolver "Polaris is, at last, the platonic ideal of a TesseracT album, the one where they get everything just right. It’s drama-bringing, supremely melodic and riff-heavy”
    AU Review 9.8/10 - "Polaris is, in my opinion, a Kubrick-level moment for this band. This is their 2001, their Octavarium, 1984, or piano-key neck-tie."
    Rock Hard DE - "Basically "Polaris" is a great record full of Opeth-, Katatonia-, Cynic and even Faith No More moments
    Metal Hammer DE –“ Polaris is absolute world class”

    POLARIS, is due out September 18, 2015 via Kscope.

  3. TESSERACT LAUNCH 2ND CLIP FROM NEW ALBUM ‘POLARIS’ -
    “HEXES” FEATURES MARTIN GRECH ON GUEST VOCALS WITH DAN TOMPKINS

    Ahead of the release of the brand new studio album ‘Polaris’ from the U.K.'s premier progressive act TesseracT, you can now listen to another 30 second clip of the track "Hexes” which features Martin Grech.

    Vocalist Dan Tompkins comments on the album “The concept of our new album, Polaris is simple; it is about the transient nature of universal truth. There is no such thing as an absolute fixed human concept that will forever be the truth. Perhaps that is a message most of us can't or don't want to listen to but Messenger highlights an ever growing awakening from the onslaught of the social conditioning we’re exposed to everyday from the media. The truth constantly obscured and the public subdued by ‘Casting fear into doubt’”

    POLARIS, is due out September 18, 2015 via Kscope.

  4. TESSERACT ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM POLARIS - AVAILABLE SEPTEMBER 18, 2015

    U.K.'s premier progressive act TesseracT have announced an all new LP titled POLARIS, due out September 18, 2015 via their UK label home Kscope and a partnership with eOne Music in North America. "TesseracT has been through a roller coaster of a ride since our first EP," says the band. "We seemed to always have been filling the holes in our ship's hull to stop this ship from sinking, as we raced around the world time and time again."

    POLARIS will follow up to the highly regarded Altered State LP that was released in 2013. The new album will be the band’s third studio album and first for Kscope and eOne. "Polaris, is a different scenario. The first chance for us as a group to stop and take stock of what we are right now, to explore a TesseracT of melody, dynamics, and singular focus. For the first time, too, we feel free from the bounds of genre specific expectations."

    Over the course of the last six years, TesseracT have been at the forefront of the ever-evolving metal scene. Originally formed as a studio project by guitarist Acle Kahney, TesseracT immediately eschewed all well-established notions of what metal should sound like and swiftly became a unique and daring entity. Acle had recruited a line-up worthy of his groundbreaking compositions and the band embarked upon a quest to inject some originality and excitement back into an often myopic and lazy British metal scene. The longstanding line up of drummer Jay Postones, guitarist James Monteith, bassist Amos Williams have recently welcomed back vocalist Dan Tompkins, whose first show back with the band was on the main stage at last year’s UK Sonisphere Festival.

    The debut album One received widespread critical acclaim, not least due to the album’s staggering six-part centrepiece Concealing Fate, which brilliantly showcased the band’s pioneering sonic approach and unstoppable arsenal of off-kilter riffs, soaring melodies and disorientating atmospherics. The primarily acoustic Perspective EP emerged in May 2012 to an effusive response from critics and fans alike and shortly after, their status as progressive metal’s most fascinating new creative force was very publicly celebrated when TesseracT picked up the Best New Band trophy at 2012’s inaugural Progressive Music Awards in London. Not wasting any time the band released their second album Altered State in early 2013 again to worldwide media acclaim.

    Having found a new creative energy after reuniting Tompkins, the highly anticipated new opus will be an evolution from Altered State. Fans can expect more experimentation with sounds and tones, and deeper exploration into the core attributes that define TesseracT’s trademark sound.
