TesseracT: Release Rehearsal Footage
UK's progressive rock band TESSERACT is gearing up for the release of their upcoming album and European tour. The band has been rehearsing nonstop and recently recorded footage of them in their practice space jamming on the track "Singularity". You can view the footage here.
"Singularity" is part of the "Of Energy" movement from Altered State and has been chosen as the first single and video off the album. An edited version of the song will be making its premiere on the BBC's Radio Rock 1 show this coming Monday. Expect the song to hit online shortly thereafter.
Video production began on "Singularity" a few days ago. Produced by Horsie In The Hedge / Pari Passu Films and featuring the Emmy Award winning director of photography, Mark Wolf as well as the practical effects team that worked on Sky Fall and Prometheus, the video is sure to be as cinematically stunning as the music itself.
'Altered State' which will be released on May 28, 2013 in North America via Century Media Records. Divided into four movements: Of Matter, Of Mind, Of Reality and Of Energy, 'Altered State' represents the transformations that TESSERACT has gone through over the past few years. The Law of Conservation of Energy states that: In a closed system energy is conserved, nothing is lost. It merely changes from one state to another.
TESSERACT has released a series of trailers as well. They can be viewed below.

'Altered State' was produced, mixed, mastered and engineered by TESSERACT guitarist, Acle Kahney, assisted by bassist, Amos Williams at Acle's 4D Sounds studio, and marks the first full release with new vocalist, Ashe O'Hara.
The band is set to head out with longtime friends, PERIPHERY, throughout mainland Europe and then headline dates throughout the UK just prior to album release. Worldwide touring will follow throughout the year.
