Revolver has teamed with TesseracT for an exclusive 2LP red vinyl variant of War of Being, limited to 500. Get yours now!
In July, U.K. djentlemen TesseracT announced their new full-length, War of Being, and unleashed its 11-minute roller coaster of a title track. Today (August 16th), they've followed that up with a second single, "The Grey," which arrived accompanied by a eerie visualizer video set in "The Strangeland," the fictional location of the concept album's dark narrative. Watch and listen below via YouTube.
Bassist Amos Williams commented: "'The Grey' explores the story and character within The Strangeland of the same name — a character who has suppressed their own voice to the point that they have blended into the shadows, their story lost amongst the white noise of the world. Through the song, we experience their journey as they wrestle with their frustration and sorrow at how they have ended up this way."
In addition to the new single, TesseracT also offered up is a fully functional, immersive War of Being video game. Launched on August 11th, it enables players to enter the world of the album, and areas from the game can be seen in the visualizer for "The Grey."
War of Being, the album, is due out September 15th through KScope. TesseracT are also scheduled to embark on a North American tour with Intervals and Alluvial in October — see the full itinerary here.
