TesseracT Drop Title Track for Their Upcoming Album War of Being, Announce Tour Dates


It’s been a minute since British djent outfit TesseracT were on the scene with some new material, but that’s all changed today, as they released the title track to their forthcoming album, War Of Being. Slated for release on September 15 via Kscope, the new album features nine new tracks.

According to the band, the new record tells the following story: “The Dream has crash landed and ‘ex’ and ‘el’ awaken to find themselves in “The Strangeland,” facing a foe known simply as “Fear,” the two are separated and so begins the journey of War Of Being…”

Bassist Amos Williams said the band has been working on this new record since 2019, as it follows The Strangeland story they’ve created.

War Of Being has been all-encompassing for us since late 2019. After I returned home from filming
P O R T A L S, I found myself in such a deeply introspective headspace. The scale of work and reward from that project kind of set this up to be inevitable. We simply had to try and see how far we could take a concept album with TesseracT.

“Within these songs the band has given life to the themes and ideas that are personified within the characters of The Strangeland story. It’s certainly been a catharsis and a way for me to explore the internal dissonance.”

As for the track itself, Daniel Tompkins said “War Of Being” is a “fight for acceptance, a battle of existence and a resistance against ego.”

“It’s a struggle for control as we cut through the white noise of reality. It’s the need to know and identify with oneself, to accept and understand what we stand for and who we are. There is an urgent need to ‘Tear the mask away,’ and reveal your true self.”
