TesseracT: to Play Bamboozle Festival; Reveal Details on Upcoming EP and Bass Play Through Video
After wrapping up a successful US tour with BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME and ANIMALS AS LEADERS, TESSERACT are pleased to announce they will be playing day three of Bamboozle Festival. Held in Asbury Park, NJ, TESSERACT will perform on May 20th, appearing alongside a number of impressive performers. "Festivals are always great to do, but for our first US festival to be Bamboozle is crazy. To be on the same bill as Incubus, Foo Fighters and Bon Jovi is a great boost for us. Bamboozle has a great tradition of mixing things up, and the bill for the 10 year anniversary festival looks to be adhering firmly to this, with bands like TesseracT, Periphery and Whitechapel sharing the stage with Skrillex, Jimmy Eat World and All American Rejects. It looks like it's going to be great fun!" Visit www.thebamboozle.com for more information on the 2012 Bamboozle Festival.
TESSERACT has received a great response from their debut album One and an even more overwhelming reaction to the re-release of their moving single "Eden". The music video for the re-vamped single can be seen here. Now, TESSERACT fans will be pleased to hear the band is currently working on an acoustic inspired EP with new vocalist Elliot Coleman, to be released in Spring. Below is a video of bassist Amos Williams performing a bass guitar play through to a track from the EP. The video can be seen here, and Williams offers this insight on the video forthcoming EP:
"I've been planning to film myself playing along to TesseracT's debut 'One' for a while now. Over the Christmas holidays I asked our fans which song they would like me to film first, to which the answer was 'April'. This got me thinking however, as 'April' has evolved quite a bit, in a similar fashion to the way 'Concealing Fate' had evolved over the years of performing it on tour. So, I figured it would make sense to perform the latest version of 'April' which we're about to release with our new EP, which has the working title of 'Perspective'. We're still not sure if this will be the title, but at the moment it kind of makes the most sense.
The EP itself was inspired by an acoustic session we filmed last year in New York, whilst on tour with Protest The Hero. It made us realize that a few of the tracks sounded really great when re-arranged and approached at from a different perspective. It will feature 3 new versions of tracks from 'One' plus a very special cover.
Once we finish off this EP we will stay in the studio and begin work our new album. This is shaping up to continue the TesseracT sound we began to develop on 'One'. A sound that is dynamic, tender, crushing, soaring, visceral, beautiful, emotive and heavy. A box of contradictions and infinite possibilities. With maybe the exception of Euro House...we're not really that into Euro House...sorry."
