TesseracT – King (from new album Sonder)
Pre-order / pre-save now for release on 20th April https://tesseract.lnk.to/Sonder
Director/Producer/Editor: Kyle Kadow & Steven Cleavland
Gaffer: Spencer Ortega
PA: Casey Deitrich
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.
Singer and lyricist Daniel Tompkins explains the concept behind the new song:
“King explores the notion that history is repeating itself. Dominated by patriarchal societies, we find ourselves being lead into disempowerment, corruption and war. The song also focusses on the inner turmoils of living with the constraints of an onerous life.”
The video was shot in a snowy Wisconsin following a brutal storm, to which bassist Amos adds
“We have been very lucky to work with two cinematographers of such vision and quality as Kyle and Steven. We gave them free reign with the creation of the first storyboard. They chose to explore the theme of claustrophobia and how fear can control our lives. Using a luminary figure as a beacon of hope and escape for the characters.”
New album ‘SONDER’ out 20th April.
