TESSERACT SIGN TO KSCOPE

September 30, 2014

get-attachment.aspxKSCOPE is thrilled to announce that, the UK’s masters of modern progressive heaviness, TesseracT are joining the Kscope family.

 

Amos Williams TesseracT bass player comments on the signing .“Really looking forward to discovering the possibilities of working with such a creative label. We admire everything Kscope’s done with bands like  Anathema, Katatonia and Steven Wilson, and can’t wait to see where they will guide TesseracT in this new chapter of the band. Very excited!”

 

Over the course of the last six years, TesseracT have been at the forefront of flourishing part 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 this year’s UK Sonisphere Festival.

 

TesseracT’s debut album ‘One’ in 2011, featuring Dan Tompkins on vocals, 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.

 

The band have already found a new creative energy having reunited with Singer Dan Tompkins and have already written half of their third album, the follow up to ‘Altered State’ and is slated for a 2015 release

Fan’s can experience the band’s thrilling live shows across Europe from today as they begin an extensive tour with co-headliners Animals As Leaders
