TesseracT Announce New Vocalist and Tease Upcoming Single
The British djent band TesseracT has employed several different vocalists during their short tenure, with Ashe O’Hara being announced as the band’s latest singer. O’Hara follows Daniel Tompkins, who appeared on the group’s 2011 debut disc, ‘One,’ and Elliot Coleman, who sang on the recent E.P. ‘Perspective.’
O’Hara, who previously provided session work for primarily ambient/alternative projects, says he’s happy to be part of TesseracT. “I have always been an admirer of their work so it’s pretty awesome to be passed such a challenging flame,” says the vocalist. “I am very aware of the anticipation and I am certainly feeling the weight of it; but I am equally excited for what shall be an amazing and s–thot experience!”
The band commented, “We realize that the vocalist search seemed like it took a long time, but we wanted to make sure that we found someone who was a perfect fit both on stage and in the studio and Ashe is just that. We very much appreciate the patience and support our fans have shown us and look forward to the next TesseracT chapter.”
O’Hara can currently be heard on a teaser of the song ‘Nocturne’ (posted below) from the band’s upcoming sophomore release. The full version of the track will be available as a free stream and download on Oct. 12. “‘Nocturne’ is one of the most uplifting and exciting pieces of music we have created,” the band explains. “It faithfully continues down the same vein of groovy and euphoric progressive soundscapes that we’re known for, whilst at the same time allowing for the musical evolution that is essential for any band that has a lineup change.”
Fans will be able to see and hear O’Hara and the rest of TesseracT live when they embark on a short European tour beginning Oct. 17.
