TESSERACT have released a brand new song!
To coincide with the band’s upcoming shows with MEGADETH and MESHUGGAH across North America, the band have released a lyric video for the brand new song titled Smile. The new song was recorded at both 4D Sound Studios, Brighton and Celestial Sound Studios, Notts UK and was produced by Acle Kahney during late spring this year. Speaking about the new song, vocalist Daniel Tompkins says, “lyrically Smile carries a strong and forward sense of irony as we explore and darkest side of the human condition. The song will witness the manifestation of an ’entity’. Consciousness survives through constant manipulation only to propagate pessimism and hopelessness. Our entity observes, consumes and evolves, bearing witness to human existence, mimicking our presence in colossal form.” Bassist Amos Williams explains further “we chose this track as although it is part of a greater theme, and is in fact towards the end of a story arc, it stands alone very well. We have a solid idea of where we would like to take this track on the next album as it is in no way finished. It is merely one step in a journey. The verses and choruses stand very far apart from each other. There is a tension we wished to build through a minimalist approach, with small phrases that repeat against accompanying parts of different lengths. These undulate, seemingly getting lost against the nonconventional phrasing of the drums. All this is nothing new to TESSERACT fans, but this time we have looked to really align the lyrical and musical messages.”
