In the past few years, there has been a massive wave of progressive metal bands doing big things in music and TesseracT are a name you can’t scroll past without checking out what they have to offer and you’ve stopped by on a good day because they’ve just announced their new album Sonder will be released April 20th via Nerve Gas.
To help celebrate the news, fans can get an early taste of the new album in the form of first single ‘Luminary‘ which sets up the tone for the rest of the band’s release which, for audiophiles, will be an assault on your senses as the band plan to release a binaural version which will be available exclusively as part of the 2CD release and feature a 360-listening experience designed by Klang: Fabrik. Bassist Amos Williams explains:
“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.”
A lot can be said about a band who care about the way their fans/listeners will hear their music and this is just one of those “going above and beyond” steps to please eager ears.
