Tesseract present Of Matter (Live At Sphere Studio) video

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on 25th February 2014 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

British prog rockers TesseracT have proudly presented the first part of their new album Altered State with a breath taking version of the track Of Matter live from the studio. The video which can be viewed below follows a tradition the band started with their debut album One, as the band explains:

Way back in 2010, we filmed a live recording of Concealing Fate at Sphere Studios with Francesco Carmeli. We enjoyed this so much that we have always wanted to do it again, and Altered State gave us the perfect opportunity to do so. Sphere Studios London has now closed and moved to L.A, so it was especially important for us to go back and film the recording of Of Matter before Francesco moved the studio.

This video is hopefully the first of four, that cover the whole of the latest album, where we aim to film four different recordings of the four different sections of Altered State in four different studios throughout our small little world. As with everything TesseracT, the video shows the slight evolution of each track as we take it from the studio on to the stage. We hope you guys enjoy it as much as we did!

TesseracT are right now in Australia playing the massive Soundwave festival tour. Next stop for the band is North America. It will be TesseracT‘s third US tour supporting their critically acclaimed Altered State album. Former touring partners and label mates, Intronaut, who will be coming fresh off a tour of their own with Between The Buried and Me and Deafheaven will be direct support. To make these events even more special, instrumentalists, DIY prog artist, Cloudkicker, will be touring for the first time ever with the members of Intronaut as his backing band. European fans can see the band on a couple of summer festivals that will be announced soon.
