TesseracT Debut New Song – “Smile”

TesseracT is kicking off their tour with Megadeth, Meshuggah, and Lillake tonight in New York, and to get fans more excited for the upcoming dates, they’ve released an amazing new song. Here’s what bassist Amos Williams said about the new ‘Smile’ single, “We chose this track as although it is part of a greater theme, and is in fact towards the end of a story arc, it stands alone very well. We have a solid idea of where we would like to take this track on the next album as it is in no way finished. It is merely one step in a journey. The verses and choruses stand very far apart from each other. There is a tension we wished to build through a minimalist approach, with small phrases that repeat against accompanying parts of different lengths. These undulate, seemingly getting lost against the nonconventional phrasing of the drums. All this is nothing new to TesseracT fans, but this time we have looked to really align the lyrical and musical messages.

Enjoy the powerful ‘Smile’ single below, and don’t miss TesseracT live in your city!
