TESSERACT have announced a brand new album!
The upcoming album, titled Sonder, follows on from 2015’s Polaris and is scheduled to be released in April this year! The album was recorded in the UK at 4D Sounds, Celestial Sounds and Project Studios, engineered by the band and Aiden O’Brien with mastering by Acle Kahney, and cover artwork designed by Amos Williams. Speaking about the upcoming album, vocalist Daniel Tompkins describes Sonder as “conceptually exploring a deep and devouring sense of insignificance, which ties into the overall theme and meaning behind Sonder.” Alongside the announcement of the new album, the band have also revealed the first single from the upcoming record; titled Luminary.

Also, the band have produced a binaural version which will be available exclusively as part of the 2CD version of record. This version is a 360-listening experience designed by Klang: Fabrik for headphones listening. Amos Williams explains more, “the concept is to push past the restrictions of a stereo headphone mix and create an accurate ‘3D’ space in which positioning outside of the normal Left Right axis can occur. This is something that every artist that uses in ear monitors on stage wishes to recreate; the real and accurate positioning of instruments. We immediately felt that this technology could be applicable to us in the studio. TESSERACT loves to bring what it does in the studio to the stage, but this time it’s experimenting with bringing a live element to the studio.”
Sonder is set for release on April 20th via Kscope.
