TesseracT announced as support for Devin Townsend Project UK tour

UK progressive metal band TESSERACT have been confirmed as the special guests on the DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT tour in March 2017.

The announcement follows the recent news that TESSERACT will be releasing the tour edition of their album Polaris, which will include bonus disc Errai, featuring 4 re-imagined tracks from the record on September 16.

TESSERACT guitarist James Monteith comments on the forthcoming live shows:

“We are beyond stoked to be touring with the DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT and playing such great venues around the UK next year. Not only are we all huge fans of the band (and our mutual agreement on music is a rare thing!), they also hold a very special place in our hearts, as they were the first band who ever took us on the road in the USA and Canada. They gave us a huge leg up in the touring game, were great mentors / advisers, all-round amazing dudes to hang out with, and they have remained our friends ever since. Not only will this be an honour on a musical level, it’ll be great to spend some time with them once again! Plus having LEPROUS on the bill is definitely the icing on the cake; they’re a phenomenal band and really help to make this bill special. Bring on 2017!”

TESSERACT have confirmed that this will be their only leg of UK club shows in 2017 as they will be working on the follow up to their 2015 album, Polaris.
