Tuska Open Air Metal Festival 2013: Day 1

Tuska Open Air Metal Festival promised to be an event to remember this year, with huge acts such as King Diamond, Wintersun and Nightwish taking command of the main stage! With finally perfect summer weather and a lineup that challenged many other summer festivals, Friday came with much awaited anticipation!

Many of the bands this year were scheduled at the same time, perhaps the cause of this was that in the past there have always been four stages, but this year there were only three. Only two of these stages allowed media to shoot footage and photos, which led to a massive and unfortunate stress factor to an otherwise phenomenal festival experience. In addition, overcrowded photo pits with unqualified photographers led to an unfortunate decline in coverage from other medias this year. Die hard Tuska fans and Medias still showed up in hordes, and showed why Tuska is still the metal festival to be at in Helsinki! More...

Tesseract has announced that the band's second full length album, "Altered State," will be released on May 27th, 2013 throughout Europe and May 28th, 2013 in North America via Century Media Records.

Divided into four movements: "Of Matter," "Of Mind," "Of Reality," and "Of Energy," the "Altered State" album in its purest form is about the transformations the band has gone through over the past few years. Tesseract elaborates:

"The concept behind the presentation of Altered State is very simple. It is about change, and how life is change. We have been through a very difficult period of time over the last few years. It is a miracle that the band has survived. I feel it is the ability to step back and see everything for what it is (hence the Perspective EP) that has allowed us to get on with life and try to enjoy it. Reality is change."

The track listing is as follows:

01. Of Matter - Proxy
02. Of Matter - Retrospect
03. Of Matter - Resist
04. Of Mind - Nocturne
05. Of Mind - Exile
06. Of Reality - Eclipse
07. Of Reality - Palingenisis
08. Of Reality - Calabi-Yau
09. Of Energy - Singularity
10. Of Energy - Embers

"Altered State" was produced, mixed, mastered and engineered by Tesseract guitarist Acle Kahney, assisted by bassist Amos Williams at Acle's 4D Sounds studio, and marks the first full release with new vocalist Ashe O'Hara.

The band is set to head out with longtime friends, Periphery, throughout mainland Europe and then headline dates throughout the U.K. just prior to album release. Worldwide touring will follow throughout the year. More...

"Ashe's power, emotion, and diversity will help to continue the distinctive yet ever evolving Tesseract sound.

Ashe currently resides in Hove, East Sussex and is eagerly awaiting the upcoming tour and working on the new album."

Comments Ashe: "I have always been an admirer of their work so it's pretty awesome to be passed such a challenging flame. I am very aware of the anticipation and I am certainly feeling the weight of it; but I am equally excited for what shall be an amazing and shithot experience!"

Tesseract Splits With Vocalist

After the recent release of the EP "Perspective," it is with heavy hearts that vocalist Elliot Coleman and Tesseract have parted ways. Bassist Amos Williams commented:

"Sadly, our good buddy Elliot has decided to leave team TesseracT. We'd like to thank Elliot for everything he has done for us. We have loved having him be a part of this beast. He introduced us to a completely different side of our sound, as well the delights of Pho! Things we will always be grateful for.

"So, as well as continuing to write and record album 2, we are also on the hunt for that special (shpecial) person to be the new full-time TesseracT vocalist."

Tesseract Streaming Jeff Buckley Cover

Tesseract has just made "Dream Brother" available as a stream via Metal Hammer UK's website, so head over here to check out this very special cover of the song.

Amos Williams (bass) comments: "We decided to cover 'Dream Brother' (originally by Jeff Buckley) for an acoustic session in New York. Myself and Acle spent ages looking at different tracks. I think we entertained 'Tear Drop' by Massive Attack, 'Thin Air' by Anathema, and many more. But 'Dream Brother' just fits Tesseract very well. Plus it is one of our collective favourite tracks. It's always a risk working with a track that you love, but we feel we did it justice. It's a great showcase for the musicianship in Tesseract, and the deep emotive power that Elliot has added to the band since he joined."

"Dream Brother" will be out on the "Perspective" EP that is set for a North American release of May 22nd and a European release of May 21st. The five song digital only EP features "Eden 2.0," acoustic versions of three tracks ["Perfection (acoustic)," "April (acoustic)," "Origin (acoustic)," from the band's debut album, "One," plus the aforementioned cover of Jeff Buckley's classic, "Dream Brother." As a bonus, iTunes will offer instrumentals of all the songs on the EP.

Tesseract To Play Bamboozle Fest

After wrapping up a successful U.S. tour with Between The Buried and Me and Animals as Leaders, Tesseract is pleased to announce the band 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. The band commented:

"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!"
