One of my favorite bands from the last couple of years is England’s djent/prog-metal group TesseracT. Combining seriously heavy riffs with some rather beautiful textures, they hit pretty much hit the nail on the head for me. I loved their Concealing Fate EP (review), I loved their album One (review), and I enjoyed the hell out of seeing them live. So, it’s with great excitement that I write that the band is preparing to release an acoustic inspired EP this spring. This EP will feature new vocalist Elliot Coleman, who replaced Daniel Tompkins late last summer.
The band has also been confirmed for Day Three of Bamboozle Fest, where they will share the same stage as Incubus, Foo Fighters, Bon Jovi, Skrillex, and more. Day Three of the fest falls on May 20th, 2012. Snag your tickets here.
Finally, bassist Amos Williams has uploaded a video playthrough of the song April. Even though bass isn’t my principal instrument, it’s still a fascinating watch as he does some very clever things. Check it out below.
