TesseracT Premiere New Single “The Grey”, Launch ‘War Of Being’ Video Game On Steam


British progressive metal outfit TesseracT have launched the song “The Grey” as the second single from their fifth studio album “War Of Being“. That song arrives online today alongside a playable video game which further explores the concept of “War Of Being“.

The band’s vocalist Daniel Tompkins is among the development team for that ambitious project, also titled ‘War Of Being‘, which is available now in early access on Steam.

Bassist/vocalist Amos Williams, who created the below visualizer video for the aforementioned single, weighed in on this new track:

“‘The Grey‘ explores the story and character within The Strangeland of the same name — a character who has suppressed their own voice to the point that they have blended into the shadows, their story lost amongst the white noise of the world. Through the song, we experience their journey as they wrestle with their frustration and sorrow at how they have ended up this way.

It’s a powerful, energetic piece that pushes each member of TesseracT to a next level of musicianship and expression. And continues to shine a light upon the diversity that can be expected from War Of Being.”

As for the game, Tompkins offered:

“As a keen gamer and livestreamer, I have always understood the potential waiting for a musical project to bridge the gap between the gaming and music worlds and with such a visually stunning concept, I could see that this was the perfect opportunity to bring it to life in virtual reality and as a desktop game.

This has been without a doubt the biggest project I have personally ever undertaken and is a huge achievement for our developers. It has pushed us to our absolute limits and I’m so proud to have accomplished the beginnings of a fully developed game on Steam.”
