UK progressive-metal pioneers TesseracT are very excited to announce Dan Tompkins as their new vocalist.

Dan brings his huge vocal range, piercing screams and a seemingly endless deluge of infectious melodies and hooks to the table, adding a whole new dimension to TesseracT’s brutal grooves and ethereal soundscapes.

Previously the front man of alternative-rockers First Signs of Frost, Dan joined the band at the beginning of August and is relentlessly recording vocals for the band’s debut album, One. The album is expected to be released in 2010.

Dan will make his debut performance at the HELLFIRE FESTIVAL this November at the Birmingham NEC. Following this the band will play a number of UK dates, including a mini tour with No Consequence (Basick).

Dan said
“It's an incredible, exciting and rare privilege to be fronting TesseracT. The pieces fit and everything has fallen into place perfectly. It's been such a challenge to write vocals for such emotional and complex music, an opportunity of which I've waited so long for. I've pushed boundaries and I’m proud to say that the vocals on this album are the best I've ever written. It all sounds immense.”

Bassist Mos said:
“We knew from the first 20 second demo that he would be perfect. TesseracT is all about 3 things; experimentation, musical emotion and groove. Dan manages to stay true to all of those ideals, whilst still connecting the listener to the music on a human level. Everything he writes challenges us, surprises us and excites us.”

The November issue of Metal Hammer features the advance album track ‘Lament’ on its cover mount CD out now! This is the first track to be made available with Dan fronting the band.

First Signs of Frost’s debut album, which features Dan’s vocals, will also be released later this year.
