There’s a brand new single / music video combo from TesseracT out right now! The track is called “Survival” and has been released in anticipation of the band’s upcoming album “Polaris”. It also serves as a great addition to the band’s legacy! But don’t take my word for it. Have a listen for yourself along with the official press release down below. Enjoy!
Ahead of the release of the brand new studio album Polaris from the U.K.’s premier progressive act TesseracT, the band are giving fans worldwide a chance to see their first video for new track “Survival.”
Vocalist Dan Tompkins comments on the video: “As musicians we’ve never had ‘overnight’ success; we’ve all worked tirelessly for well over a decade and committed to many personal sacrifices to exist as a band. Survival is a hard hitting song about the struggles we’ve encountered along the way but specifically and especially about the strain and burden of being apart from our loved ones to whom we are forever beholden for their steadfast and loving support. The idea behind our video represents that struggle for Survival and the burning desire to be reunited with our families after long periods of absence.”
With the stunning Derbyshire landscape as a backdrop “Survival” was filmed and directed by Pele Newell. He said, “Working with TesseracT has been great, it’s nice to work with people that are so passionate about what they do.” On the video concept, he comments, “The video is set in the near future where Imani (The actors) has been framed. Central are hunting him down as they have already captured his family. He’s on a constant battle to find them without being captured himself.”
