TesseracT have released the new song below called “The Grey“, from their upcoming fifth studio album War Of Being. The album is set to release on September 15th through Kscope. The song arrives as the band is releasing the playable video game which dives into the album’s concept.
Vocalist Daniel Tompkins was on the developmental team for the project, which is also called War Of Being, and is available to play now on Steam.
Amos Williams, the band’s bassist/vocalist offered the following on the single and visualizer:
“‘The Grey‘ explores the story and character within The Strangeland of the same name — a character who has suppressed their own voice to the point that they have blended into the shadows, their story lost amongst the white noise of the world. Through the song, we experience their journey as they wrestle with their frustration and sorrow at how they have ended up this way.
It’s a powerful, energetic piece that pushes each member of TesseracT to a next level of musicianship and expression. And continues to shine a light upon the diversity that can be expected from War Of Being.”
Tompkins offered the following regarding the game:
“As a keen gamer and livestreamer, I have always understood the potential waiting for a musical project to bridge the gap between the gaming and music worlds and with such a visually stunning concept, I could see that this was the perfect opportunity to bring it to life in virtual reality and as a desktop game.
This has been without a doubt the biggest project I have personally ever undertaken and is a huge achievement for our developers. It has pushed us to our absolute limits and I’m so proud to have accomplished the beginnings of a fully developed game on Steam.”
