TesseracT unveil new single ‘Echoes’ ahead of US tour

After releasing the album of their career in the form of War Of Being, UK prog metal titans TesseracT invite fans once more to a beautiful listening experience in the form of ‘Echoes’, the newest single from the record.

Tomorrow, the band will kick off their biggest tour to date in North America, bringing listeners right into ‘The Strangeland’, the concept world of War Of Being. This leg of TesseracT’s world tour will span from 5th October in North Carolina right up to 13th November at the Brooklyn Bowl in Nashville, Tennessee.

The track lands with earth-shattering impact as guitar riffs collide with polyrhythmic drums, giving way to malleable basslines, coupled with a vocal performance that is as vulnerable as it is brilliant. Gearing up for the track’s climactic grand finale where aftershocks of groove reverberate throughout the listener, it’s the perfect prologue in understanding the relationship between ‘El’ and ‘The Scribe’.

Regarding the track, Daniel Tompkins had the following to say:

“The concept of ‘Echoes’ is based around one of our main characters, ‘El’, and ‘The Scribe’. They play a major part in the concept and game as ‘The Scribe’ is a splintered part of ‘El’s ego that has the ability to control destiny and rewrite the past.”

Dan continues:

“This has always been a hard-hitting song and it adds a real dynamic to the album. As a standalone track it exudes feelings from the heights of euphoria but also the depths of desperation. There’s a real sense of frustration and regret throughout, especially as the song climaxes with its brutal admission.”

The visualiser, created by Asiel Manuel Rodriguez Espinosa (@asiel_type ) peels back yet more layers from the mysterious world of ‘The Strangeland’. It moves from peaceful moonlit plains to fiery ruins taking with it the listener to another world.

Now, for the first time, the band will be bringing ‘The Strangeland’ to the live arena with their worldwide tour. Alongside regular tickets, fans will also have to opportunity for VIP experiences which consist of an exclusive stripped down performance, Q&A with TesseracT, limited signed art print, laminate with lanyard, early merch access and early entry.
