"Nocturne", the new video form U.K. progressive rockers TESSERACT, can be seen below. The clip was directed by Ben Thornley of Sitcom Soldiers.Comments TESSERACT: "As we haven't taken part in our promo videos for a while, we felt now was the time to make an appearance. But we also wanted to create a journey with the video that was similar to the journey portrayed by the music. A pretty straightforward step from the night, what it hides and the fear it generates, into the reassurance and safety of the dawn. "We have always really liked the idea of creating silhouettes (we tried to something similar with our first video, 'Deception'), so we decided upon using back lights for the majority of the video, which is then reversed when the feeling of the music changes towards the end of the track. "We feel the guys at Sitcom Soldiers have really captured the mood of the song, and also produced a video that draws you in." Adds Thornley: "Working with TESSERACT for us was about capturing something which did a great song justice with a memorable performance, whilst providing an equally provocative atmospheric narrative. The band naturally looked great and the creative process went very smoothly and shows in the final video." TESSERACT is currently touring the U.S. with KATATONIA, CULT OF LUNA and INTRONAUT, and will then immediately venture off on a headlining run with SCALE THE SUMMIT. Next up are Mexico, the U.K. (with KARNIVOOL) as well as a trip to India. TESSERACT will kick off 2014 on the road with in Europe with THE SAFETY FIRE, PROTEST THE HERO and INTERVALS before taking part in the Soundwave Festival in Australia.
