TESSERACT ANNOUNCE NEW VOCALIST AND RELEASE NEW SONG PREVIEW CLIP
TesseracT have announced their new singer, their third in just over a year and approximately 16,000th in their history as a band. Dan Tompkins left in the summer of 2011 and was replaced by ex-Sky Eats Airplane vocalist Elliot Coleman shortly thereafter. Rumors started to percolate in June of this year that Coleman had already split, and those rumors were confirmed when TesseracT announced a new vocalist search over the summer.
It appears that TesseracT have finally found their man — to keep the seat warm until the next guy comes along, at least — in Ashe O’Hara.
Here’s O’Hara in a more intimate setting, a home-filmed acoustic duet with Jessica Mary York:
To introduce O’Hara to the world at large, TesseracT have released about a minute of a new song called “Nocturne” featuring his vocals. “Nocturne” will be available as a free download and streaming everywhere on October 12th, but for the time being you can check out the preview below:
All things considered, O’Hara’s got a great voice and seems like he’ll be a good fit for the band. Hopefully he’s the guy that finally sticks.
