TESSERACT: 'Juno' Video Released

With their world tour preparing to hit European stages next month, British genre-bending progressive rockers TESSERACT have released a new video for the track "Juno", taken from their latest studio album, "Sonder"' This stunning clip created by Dark Fable Media and was filmed in high-definition 4K.

TESSERACT vocalist and lyricist Dan Tomkins explains the importance of the track within "Sonder": "Writing the lyrics for this album was a cathartic experience and I feel that 'Juno' is probably the epitome of 'Sonder'.

"We wanted to create a video that symbolized the realization of the constraints that are placed on life. 'Juno' is the embodiment of that feeling."

He continues: "Having worked with Dark Fable Media multiple times, I have grown to love what they do and how they operate. TESSERACT have wanted to work with them for a long time now, so this video was a real joy to work on."

Amos Williams, TESSERACT's bassist, talks us through the filming process: "Technically, this was intense as we filmed everything at double speed to get a weird fantasy vibe that was still in time when replayed at normal speed. Of all the tracks we could have chosen to try this technique, 'Juno' is not the easiest. But, we think the results show for themselves it was worth it."

Released in April through Kscope, "Sonder" adds significant firepower to the band's arsenal, blending the harsh abrasiveness of "One" (2011) and progressive ethereal elements of "Altered State" (2013) with the accessibility of "Polaris" (2015).

"Sonder" is streamlined, honest, and direct, with all the trademark TESSERACT dreamy atmospherics and bending grooves. It was recorded in the U.K. at 4D Sounds, Celestial Sounds and Project Studios, and engineered by the band and Aiden O'Brien, with mastering by Acle Kahney and cover artwork designed by Amos Williams.
