September 9, 2016 — UK progressive act TesseracT have released a new music video today for their track titled “Hexes.” Directed by George Laycock (Blacktide Phonic/Visual) and conceptualized by vocalist Daniel Tompkins and bassist Amos Williams, this is the second music video the band has released from their most recent LP, Polaris, which came out last year. “Hexes represents a vivid dream and distant memory,” says Tompkins. “One of holding onto the secrets between two people; a history shrouded in secrecy.”

“To maintain the intimate and personal nature of the concept, we knew that we needed a video director that didn’t simply understand the lyrics but someone who could connect to the intensity of the music, and was willing to work closely together in creating the right visuals.”

“On first contact with Blacktide we knew that we had found the right team. The video was shot over four different locations scattered across the UK including Leicester’s National Space Centre, where we filmed some striking footage from inside a replica of the Columbus module from the International Space Station; shot in the early hours while the centre was closed to the public.

Without a doubt Hexes is the most cohesive and impactful video we have made to date and we’re extremely proud of the end result.”

With the band’s U.S. tour beginning in just a few weeks, TesseracT has taken a look back over their summer 2016 festival season. Fans get the chance to go behind the scenes at festivals like Graspop, Rock Am Ring & Rock AM Park & Download with Dan, Amos, Jay, Acle, James and sound engineer Aidan O’Brien. They chat about how they prepare for these huge shows; how the new Polaris tracks have been gone down with festival crowds; what it feels like play in front of a home crowd on their first appearance at the UK’s legendary Download; find out which band member aspires to have his own beer tech.
Fans can listen to the new re-worked version of “Survival” here.
The Polaris Tour Edition will be released as a 2 CD set, as well as digitally, with Errai being released as a stand-alone 180g heavyweight clear vinyl with enclosed download code. The CD & LP are available to pre-order here: EU: Pre-Order | North America | Digital: Errai | Polaris / Errai 

Along with the new song interpretations, the cover art of new edition of Polaris has been given a 2016 make-over by artist Dan Mumford.

This September they head back to North America to tour with Gojira. For full tour routings and details of the 2017 UK tour with Devin Townsend Project. More information can be found here.
