TESSERACT Announces New Singer

U.K. progressive metallers TESSERACT have announced the addition of vocalist Ashe O'Hara to the group's ranks.

Hailing from Northampton, Ashe spent his early years singing in many different groups, from choirs to
musical theatre, and has more recently been involved with a number of
ambient/alternative metal projects in addition to doing session work. Ashe currently resides in Hove, East Sussex and is eagerly awaiting the upcoming tour and working on the new album.

Comments Ashe: "I have always been an admirer of their work so it's pretty awesome to
be passed such a challenging flame. I am very aware of the anticipation
and I am certainly feeling the weight of it, but I am equally excited
for what shall be an amazing and shithot experience!"

Add the other members of TESSERACT: We realize that the vocalist search seemed like it took a long time,
but we wanted to make sure that we found someone who was a perfect fit
both on stage and in the studio and Ashe is just that. We very much
appreciate the patience and support our fans have shown us and look
forward to the next TESSERACT chapter."

A snippet of the new TESSERACT song "Nocturne" featuring Ashe can be heard in the YouTube clip below.

"Nocturne" will be available as a free download and streaming everywhere on October 12.

Comments the band: "'Nocturne', is one of the most uplifting and exciting pieces of music we have
created. It faithfully continues down the same vein of groovy and
euphoric progressive soundscapes that we're known for. Whilst at the
same time allowing for the musical evolution that is essential for any
band that has a lineup change."

TESSERACT recently picked up the "New Blood" award — as voted for by readers of Prog magazine — at last week's first-ever Progressive Music Awards in the U.K. and is preparing for a small run of dates through Europe.
