TESSERACT TO RELEASE 4 TRACK CLEAR VINYL EP - ERRAI - 4 RE-IMAGINED TRACKS FROM 2015'S 'POLARIS'.
Kscope will be releasing a 12" clear vinyl, 4 track EP from TesseracT on 16th September, entitled 'Errai'.
'Errai' features four re-worked tracks from the band's critically acclaimed 2015 studio album 'Polaris' "Survival", "Cages", "Tourniquet" and "Seven Names". The tracks have been re-imagined by the band's long time live producer and sound engineer Aidan O'Brien.
TesseracT vocalist Dan Tompkins comments "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"
Along with the new song interpretations the cover art for 'Errai' sees the 'Polaris' artwork having a 2016 make-over by artist Dan Mumford.
'Errai' will be released on 180g heavyweight clear vinyl with enclosed MP3 download code.
After the phenomenal success of their own headline tour in support of 'Polaris', TesseracT have confirmed they will be returning to North America as main support to Gojira between 21st September & 23rd October. Over the summer TesseracT will be appearing at various European festivals.
Press comments on 'Polaris': "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." - Revolver Magazine "keeps impressing with every release, going with different ideas and compositions while still keeping their identity" Outburn Magazine "is best defined as a sum of the group's polished production smoothly colliding with an offensive onslaught of vocal and instrumentation virtuosity." - Metal Injection "start to finish, Polaris is affecting, captivating and bloody gorgeous" - Metal Hammer 9/10 "'Bold and brilliant. This might be their best album to date' - Prog Magazine "Killer third album of ultra-tech brit metallers" - Kerrang 4/5 A tapestry of delicate melodies and dreamlike textures' - Total Guitar Magazine - 4.5/5
