In the build up to their rerelease of their album Polaris with the special EP titled Errai the band have unveiled a brand new video for their track “Hexes“.
A line up that already had other tours being given a run for their money gets even better.
Set to release a tour edition of their 2015 smash Polaris, Tesseract will be not only releasing the album in a new format but will include a brand new EP titled Errai featuring reworked versions of Polaris.
The arrival of June signals the imminent release of summer, at last the sun has come to sparingly greet our British Isles and though the forecast might be slightly murkier than perhaps we wanted, I for one am in high spirits that the fields in Donington this weekend will weather the storm. For anyone heading down to the eponymous festival this weekend we have picked ten band’s that among the Demi God status of our headliners truly demand your attention. Whether in a tent or on main stage these bands are the ones to watch.
Shortly after revealing their hand with the absolutely brilliant “Stranded” single, Gojira have announced a headline tour with Tesseract.
Technology can very much be a double edged sword in the world of Metal. Owing to its recent decline in sales almost making years of work redundant however it has also given birth to an entirely new movement. Progressive Metal strives to be unique, creative and truly experimental. Releasing their third album last year, Tesseract are pioneers of the genre. Despite having only released three albums in their life span, bar a couple of EP’s the band’s musicality is absolutely limitless. Creating a compromise between the more progressive arc whilst retaining a memorable sense of melody the band are easily one of the most exciting musical projects to come out of Metal in a long time.

Once again we are plagued to the greedy maw of London’s venues with a particularly early start time at London’s Koko tonight to ensure that Club NME can still go ahead… However before that we embark on a journey of the metaphysical in both sound and spirit. Joined by Nordic Giants and The Contortionist, Tesseract will take to a sold out Koko’s stage later this evening to reveal just what makes this band absolutely exceptional.
You can never have too much Tesseract!
For those who might have just joined us, this year we’re getting in the festive mood the best way. Count down the days until Christmas both myself and Chris will be releasing our favourite albums on the run up to the holiday. In the style of an Advent Calendar I shall be posting on the even days and Chris on the odd days!
Ahead of their album release tomorrow Tesseract have made their brand new album available for your listening pleasure in it’s entirety.
Though Darwin might have had many different theories his most memorable was that of evolution, during a time when such an idea would be seen as ludicrous the man single handedly was responsible for one of the most important discoveries in mankind’s history. From the microscopic beginnings a single celled organisms to the slow growth evolution is relative throughout our planet. Leading to humans having the prestigious accolade of top of the food chain after we began to stand up.
It would seem that Tesseract are certainly gearing up for their brand new album. Having announced previously that the band will be embarking on an Australian tour later this year with Caligula’s Horse before hitting up the state’s and now its Europe’s turn.
