Daniel Tompkins of TesseracT Announces Debut Solo Album
TesseracT singer Daniel Tompkins has announced that he’ll release his new debut solo album, Castles, on May 31 via Kscope.
Tompkins says that Castles is inspired by “the arc of relationships – tragic mistakes, misjudgments of character, and victorious, passionate love.” The singer adds:
“Everyone has experiences that are relatable to one another in their romantic relationships. We make huge investments of trust and care and commitment into one another and sometimes they simply fail. In fact, most fail. That said, some survive, thrive and create incredible lifelong partnerships or at least important, long-lasting love. But sometimes, we make massive misjudgments of character and the true nature of someone is always revealed over time. Sometimes tragic mistakes, physical or mental abuse, compulsion or addiction are an issue and create irreparable harm to relationships and lives, no matter how in love two people may be. This is the area where the most tragic outcomes occur. The album is somewhat cathartic lyrically but in other areas it explores amazing, victorious, passionate love. A lot of this story is told from the perspective of someone seeking that perfect partnership and the ultimate fulfillment of finding it.”
Meanwhile, the frontman has released a video for a single off his upcoming album, “Saved.” Tompkins has been able to create a feel that is entirely his own and separate from TesseracT; it has a darker, beautiful, and atmospheric sound that makes you feel like you’re listening to, well, the soundtrack of your most recent failed relationship. In the best way possible, though.
BRB. Gonna go cry and jam my heart out.
