TESSERACT ANNOUNCE NEW ACOUSTIC PERSPECTIVE EP, OUT SOON
Another day, and another prog metal news break picked up by Heavy Blog‘s finely tuned ear to the social network ground: TesseracT bassist Amos Williams has posted bass tabs for the track “April” on his Facebook page. That news in and of itself isn’t especially noteworthy since “April” appeared on 2011’s One, but the tabs are labeled “Perspective EP,” fueling speculation that TesseracT are preparing an acoustic release.
But speculate no more: the band’s label just issued an update in which the acoustic EP was confirmed, citing the acoustic session TesseracT filmed with Metal Injection last year as inspiration to release re-worked, unplugged versions of old songs (plus a new cover). Here’s that Metal Injection Unplugged session:
Worth noting: the new EP will be the band’s first recording with new vocalist Elliot Coleman. Rumors abound that TesseracT are working on a proper new record for release in 2012 as well, so get excitebike, ’cause s’gonna be a big year for the Tess!
