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...

Additionally, Tessract is happy to announce that the band has been added to the U.K. leg of the Devin Townsend Project and Fear Factory tour. Dates are available after the jump. More...
Tesseract is excited to welcome Ashe O'Hara as the band's new vocalist. The following press release was issued about the new member:
"Ashe's power, emotion, and diversity will help to continue the distinctive yet ever evolving Tesseract sound. Hailing from Northampton originally, Ashe spent his early years singing in many different groups, from choirs to musical theatre, and has more recently worked on a number of ambient/alternative metal projects as well as session work. 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 adds, "We realize that the vocalist search seemed like it took a long time, but we wanted to make sure that we found someone who was a perfect fit both on stage and in the studio and Ashe is just that. We very much appreciate the patience and support our fans have shown us and look forward to the next TesseracT chapter." The first preview of that chapter, a teaser of the song "Nocturne," can be heard here: More...
Tesseract, which split with the band's vocalist back in June, has now issued the following update about recruiting a new member and releasing a single:

Tesseract has checked in with the following announcement about rescheduling shows after Animals As Leaders canceled a run of tour dates:
"Following the announcement of Animals As Leaders' cancellation of their headline tour, we have very reluctantly been forced to cancel some of our planned headline shows in Aarau, Vienna and Ostrava however rest assured we will be coming back next year.
"Please note the rescheduled dates for the Paris and Nijmegen:
22.10.2012 (F) Paris - Le Batofar
23.10.2012 (NL) Nijmegen – Merleyn
"We are again very sorry for the inconveniences caused and will make it up to all the fans who are missing out!"
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."
A video statement from Elliot can also be seen in the player below. More...
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.

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!"
