THE last time TesseracT played live at The Craufurd Arms, this time last year, they used the date to reveal the new frontman, Elliot Coleman.
Fast-forward to this Friday night, and the band returns to the Wolverton venue, and use the new date to reveal their new singer!
The band’s frontman tally reaches four with the introduction of Ashe O’ Hara, who some of you will have seen with Voices from the Fuselage.
“He fits our vision for the stage and studio perfectly,” the band said in a statement, before thanking fans for their patience during the search for a suitable candidate.
“...but as the new single will attest, we feel it was worth the wait.”
That single, Nocturne was released couple of weeks back, and has already enjoyed support from Radio 1.
At the end of 2011, TesseracT spent a couple of months touring stateside.
Indeed, the last time the fella’s actually played live was in New York’s Times Square, so this new show – a hometown stint for TesseracT mainman Acle Kahney – is one to relish, even though the lights won’t be so quite so bright!
“I’m looking forward to the Craufurd,” Acle told us, “It has been almost a year since we’ve played a gig, because we’ve been preoccupied with writing the second album and the singer situation.
“It’ll be good to get gigging again.”
TesseracT, who recently bagged the Best Newcomer Award at the inaugural Prog Rock Awards ceremony will be joined at tomorrow’s show by Hacktivist and Enochian Theory.
Tickets are eight quid in advance, and doors open at 7.30pm.
Arms of Atlantis are in the final stages of their UK tour just now, and they roll into the Craufurd on Saturday evening, along with Maven, Embrace the Tide and Time Well Spent.
Tickets for this one will set you back £4 in advance, £6 on the doors, again from 7.30pm.
