TesseracT Unveil New Album “War Of Being”, Announce Fall North American Tour With Intervals, Alluvial & More


British progressive metal outfit TesseracT have pushed their new single “War Of Being” out into the world. Its arrival is complemented by an official music video which was directed by Found Format. That premiere accompanies word of the band’s first new album in five years, “War Of Being“. A September 15th release date stands for that through Kscope.

A press release said of the record, ‘The Dream has crash landed and ‘ex’ and ‘el’ awaken to find themselves in “The Strangeland,” facing a foe known simply as “Fear,” the two are separated and so begins the journey of War Of Being…’

The band’s bassist Amos Williams weighed in:

War Of Being has been all-encompassing for us since late 2019. After I returned home from filming P O R T A L S, I found myself in such a deeply introspective headspace. The scale of work and reward from that project kind of set this up to be inevitable. We simply had to try and see how far we could take a concept album with TesseracT.

Within these songs the band has given life to the themes and ideas that are personified within the characters of The Strangeland story. It’s certainly been a catharsis and a way for me to explore the internal dissonance.”

As for this first single, vocalist Daniel Tompkins shared:

“‘War Of Being‘ is a fight for acceptance, a battle of existence and a resistance against ego. It’s a struggle for control as we cut through the white noise of reality. It’s the need to know and identify with oneself, to accept and understand what we stand for and who we are. There is an urgent need to ‘Tear the mask away,’ and reveal your true self.”

Peter Miles (Architects, Sylosis) and Choir Noir‘s Katherine Marsh co-produced the effort. Meanwhile the artwork for it employed collaborative efforts between AI and human artistry as a reflection of the album’s concepts.
