TesseracT have announced a deluxe vinyl reissue of their critically-acclaimed 2013 album ‘Altered State’ for release on the 6th November via Century Media. This 4LP+2CD set collects the original album together with the instrumentals, the latter of which have never been released on vinyl. Each 180g 2LP set comes in a gatefold sleeve, packaged in a slipcase with 4 individual inserts/lyric sheets, plus 2 CD’s.
The band comments: “For the band, we always felt like we hit a perfect balance with the presentation on Altered State. And that the concept was made even more striking in a gatefold vinyl package. There’s just something very tactile and real about that iteration. We’re all really looking forward to it being available in that format again.”Continue reading TesseracT announce deluxe vinyl reissue of ‘Altered State’

Taking place at Fernhil Farm near Bristol, the award winning, best small UK music festival (2018) ArcTanGent Festival returns in 2020, and can now announce its first main stage headliner, as well as a further 27 more acts for the event.
As a UK exclusive show, the incredible Opeth is the first headliner for ArcTanGent, which will held on the 20th, 21st and 22nd of August 2020.
Festival organiser James Scarlett explains a bit about this first announcement and the importance of the first headliner for him and ArcTanGent – “Opeth’s Ghost Reveries is one of two albums (the other being the Mars Volta’s Frances the Mute) that I always credit with setting me on the leftfield musical path that has led to the line ups I book every year at ATG. In 2005 I’d never heard anything like it and from there onwards my musical tastes just took off and led me to all my favourite bands. Essentially what I’m saying is that Opeth was part of the original ArcTanGent DNA and so I couldn’t be happier to announce that they’re joining us at Fernhill Farm for a Friday Main Stage headline set! I also just realised it will be almost exactly 15 years since Ghost Reveries was released – amazing!”
Ahead of the release of TesseracT’s highly anticipated new studio album Sonder the band have revealed their first official video, for their new single “King”.
The emotive and viscerally challenging clip, was directed by Kyle Kadow & Steven Cleavland and shot in a snowy Wisconsin following a brutal storm, which all added to the atmospheric footage as bassist Amos Williams explains “We have been very lucky to work with two cinematographers of such vision and quality as Kyle and Steven. We gave them free reign with the creation of the first story board. They chose to explore the theme of claustrophobia and how fear can control our lives. Using a luminary figure as a beacon of hope and escape for the characters.”
