Since 2018’s ‘Sonder’, TesseracT have risen to new heights across the globe, consistently smashing through glass ceilings & touring arenas with the likes of Bullet for My Valentine, Dream Theater & Gojira. All in addition to being established high-profile festival headliners themselves.
On their fifth studio album, ‘War Of Being’, TesseracT return with a career-high release that is their most conceptual, dynamic & sonically intricate (complex) to date. The story revolves around an inter-dimensional journey undertaken by two characters (Ex & El), within The Strangeland, a world made to reflect the socio-economic state of our own. Throughout its hour-long run time, the band treat listeners to sprawling atmospherics, impassioned vocal performances from Daniel Tompkins & atom bomb level heavy riffs. The band have long been an innovative entity & with ‘War Of Being’ prove they have become masters of a truly unique sound.
The album begins with the reverie shattering ‘Natural Disaster’, followed by the pendulum swing of ‘Legion’. That slingshots us into the herculean title track - the album's 11-minute centrepiece that undulates with precision & power. When coupled with the beguiling melodies of ‘The Grey’, or the unshielded honesty of ‘Burden’, the band deliver their most impassioned release to date - an album to excite & inspire. Acle Kahney, Daniel Tompkins, Amos Williams, Jay Postones, & James Monteith truly have crafted a phenomenal set of immersive, absorbing sounds.
‘War Of Being’ was recorded at Middle Farm Studios in the UK. The record was co-produced & engineered by the band & Peter Miles (Dodie, Sylosis, Architects) along with his long-time collaborator Katherine Marsh of Choir Noir (Bring Me The Horizon, Architects, Marillion). Assisting with additional programming & production, the band were joined by Randy Slaugh (Periphery, Architects, Devin Townsend). With additional engineering by Forrester Savell (Karnivool).
‘War Of Being’ is TesseracT’s defining moment, an album that will be remembered as the beginning of a new era for this forward-thinking, dynamic band.
