TesseracT have announced their new album, War Of Being, which is scheduled to arrive on September 15th via Kscope. The record will take listeners to a story along the lines of: 

“The Dream has crash landed, and ‘ex’ and ‘el’ awaken to find themselves in “The Strangeland,” facing a foe known simply as “Fear,” the two are separated, and so begins the journey of War Of Being….”


The forthcoming effort was recorded at Middle Farm Studios in the United Kingdom with Peter Miles (Architects/Sylosis/Dodie) co-producing with the band alongside Katherine Marsh of Choir Noir (Bring Me The Horizon/Architects). Randy Slaugh (Periphery, Architects, Devin Townsend) assisted with additional programming and production, as Forrester Savell (Karnivool) handled the additional engineering. The artwork, featuring characters ‘ex’ and ‘el,’ was created in collaboration between AI and human innovations to continue the overall album concept. 

To celebrate the record reveal, the group has unveiled a cinematic video, written and directed by Found FOrmat with second unit director Richard Oakes/Dark Fable Media (Sleep Token), for the title track. The clip moves more like an eleven-minute visual journey highlighting the prologue for the album’s overall immersive tale. These progressive metal innovators will be taking their new album on the road this fall and into 2024 as they will be touring across the U.S., Europe, UK, Asia, and Australia, with support from INtervals, Unprocessed, Alluvial, and The Callous Daoboys. Tickets go on sale this Friday (14th). 


Bassist Amos Williams expresses:

“War Of Being has been all-encompassing for us since late 2019. After I returned home from filming P O R T A L S, I found myself in such a deeply introspective headspace. The scale of work and reward from that project kind of set this up to be inevitable. We simply had to try and see how far we could take a concept album with TesseracT. Within these songs the band has given life to the themes and ideas that are personified within the characters of The Strangeland story. It’s certainly been a catharsis and a way for me to explore the internal dissonance.”


Daniel Tompkins discusses the single: 

“‘War Of Being’ is a fight for acceptance, a battle of existence and a resistance against ego. It’s a struggle for control as we cut through the white noise of reality. It’s the need to know and identify with oneself, to accept and understand what we stand for and who we are. There is an urgent need to ‘Tear the mask away,’ and reveal your true self.”
