The British progressive metal group Tesseract has released the first video "Survival", filmed for the song from the upcoming album "Polaris".
The vocalist Dan Tompkins comments on the video: "As musicians we've never had 'overnight' success; we've all worked tirelessly for well over a decade and committed to many personal sacrifices to exist as a band. Survival is a hard hitting song about the struggles we've encountered along the way but specifically and especially about the strain and burden of being apart from our loved ones to whom we are forever beholden for their steadfast and loving support. The idea behind our video represents that struggle for Survival and the burning desire to be reunited with our families after long periods of absence"
"Survival" was filmed and directed by Pele Newell in Derbyshire, England.
Pele Newell: "Working with TesseracT has been great, it's nice to work with people that are so passionate about what they do."
"The video is set in the near future where Imani (The actors) has been framed. Central are hunting him down as they have already captured his family. He's on a constant battle to find them without being captured himself."
The release of Tesseract’s new album "Polaris" will be held on September 18 via Kscope. In early August, the band unveiled the lyric video "Messenger" for another song of the future CD.
