NEW YORK - Ahead of the release of the brand new studio album ‘Polaris’ from the U.K.'s premier progressive act TesseracT, the band are giving fans worldwide a chance to see their first video for new track ‘Survival’.
Vocalist Dan Tompkins comments on the video: "As musicians we've never had 'overnight' success; we've all worked tirelessly for well over a decade and committed to many personal sacrifices to exist as a band. Survival is a hard hitting song about the struggles we've encountered along the way but specifically and especially about the strain and burden of being apart from our loved ones to whom we are forever beholden for their steadfast and loving support. The idea behind our video represents that struggle for Survival and the burning desire to be reunited with our families after long periods of absence"
With the stunning Derbyshire landscape as a backdrop ‘Survival’ was filmed & directed by Pele Newell he said “Working with TesseracT has been great, it's nice to work with people that are so passionate about what they do.” On the video concept he comments, ”The video is set in the near future where Imani (The actors) has been framed. Central are hunting him down as they have already captured his family. He's on a constant battle to find them without being captured himself.”
TesseracT will return to North America for a healthy batch of tour dates slated for later this year. The band has tapped THE CONTORTIONIST as main support along with ERRA, and SKYHARBOR. Dates will kick off on November 2nd at the Theater for Living Arts in Philadelphia and run coast to coast making a few stops in Canada before wrapping things up at Irving Plaza in New York City on December 7th.
