U.K.’s premier progressive act Tesseract follows up 2013’s highly regarded Altered State with Polaris. The album serves as the band’s third studio effort overall and first for Kscope and eOne. «Polaris, is a different scenario, » says the band. «The first chance for us as a group to stop and take stock of what we are right now, to explore a Tesseract of melody, dynamics, and singular focus. For the first time, too, we feel free from the bounds of genre specific expectations.»Having found a new creative energy after reuniting with Tompkins, the highly anticipated new opus will be an evolution from Altered State. Fans can expect more experimentation with sounds and tones, and deeper exploration into the core attributes that define Tesseract’s trademark sound.
