Tesseract recently completed a tour of North America alongside Protest the Hero and Maylene & The Sons of Disaster. On May 2nd of that trek, the band stopped into Metal Injection's Brooklyn studio to record an acoustic session that is now available online through MetalInjection.net. The band recorded three songs, one being a cover of Jeff Buckley's Dream Brother. Bassist, Amos Williams commented:
"There are very few artists that TesseracT, as a band, can all enjoy. Jeff Buckley is one of them. Ever since hearing Dan's voice on Tess' tunes, covering a Buckley song was something I thought would be cool to try and pull off. We didn't stray too far from the path on this one (that might come later...), though we certainly had fun doing it as well as the other songs. We want to thank the Metal Injection guys for putting this together as well as Taylor for hooking up James and Acle with the sweet sounding guitars."
The three songs recorded are as follows:
2. "Origin (Concealing Fate Pt. 4)"
3. "Dream Brother (Jeff Buckley Cover)"

Tesseract has come off a month long tour across the U.S. in support of the "Concealing Fate" EP alongside Devin Townsend. The band is also set to release its debut full-length album in early 2011. Tesseract has checked in with the following update:
"So, we've just returned from what was possibly the most incredible first tour of the US and Canada that any band could ever have hoped for. We've seen many wonders like the Grand Canyon and Niagara Falls and experienced trials and tribulations like a two day drive and a GPS that said 'in 704 miles, turn left.' We ate more food than any one man should ever be able to eat at breakfast, every...single...day. It's a shame, but for the rest of the world, North America has a lot of stereotypes, most of them negative. However, within the first 24 hours, most of these were dispelled and all of us fell in love with the place. The people, the crowds and the country were wonderful and in many cases simply epic. You can see a portion of the silliness in this album of photos taken by Kristell Gathoye who was on the road with us here.
"We feel we must thank Devin Townsend and the wonderful band of musicians collectively known as The Devin Townsend Project for their kindness, hospitality and genuine humility. Along with DTP, we have made so many good friends and are looking forward to meeting them all again and catching up in person when we tour 'over the pond' once again. Speaking of which, we're just confirming a mammoth 6 week US and Canadian tour to coincide with the release of our debut album next year, more information will be released on this soon. More...
