TESSERACT successfully complete Austral ian run; announce “Saints and Sinners” No rth American tour

After successfully completing their Australian run with PERIPHERY, TESSERACT are now back in the UK, poised for their European headlining tour in the fall and a North American trek after that. While they're excited to be back in Europe, the band's recent tour in the outback is still fresh on their minds. Bassist Amos Williams comments about TESSERACT's journey "down-under" and their future touring plans:

"Australia was a revelation! We won't lie, it's not easy to get 'down-under'. 25 hours trapped in a tin can, hurtling at 600 miles an hour, 40,000 feet in the air over land and sea with nothing but your fellow passenger's flatulence and airline 'food' for company is hell. But the end goal was SO worth it! We were amazed at the response in each town, especially Melbourne. You guys really made the gig amazing."

"So what's next for us this year? First, we have a European headliner - the Lowering the Tone Tour 2011, with CHIMP SPANNER and UNEVEN STRUCTURE. Secondly, we return to the US and Canada this October as part of the 'Saints and Sinners' North American Tour. This bill is insane. We're gonna have to really be on the ball every night as the other two bands are masters of tech. After us will be ANIMALS AS LEADERS. Tosin Abasi and Javier Reyes are probably the most exciting guitarists on the scene today. The pair are like aliens with super human skills and innovative ideas. Then headlining will be BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME...Intense and hugely energetic."

"We're so happy to be returning to the US and Canada re-visiting all our North American fans, and hopefully picking up a few new ones along the road!"

Come October, TESSERACT will be back in North America with BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME and ANIMALS AS LEADERS for the ultimate progressive metal tour, "Saints And Sinners"! Dates for the tour are below, and press opportunities for TESSERACT are available. Please contact to schedule!
