TesseracT debuts their re-imagined version of ‘Survival’ from the forthcoming Errai EP on Kscope

TesseracT’s live producer and sound engineer, Aidan O’Brien offers – “The fascinating thing about taking a track apart to remix, rework, or re-imagine it, is being able to look at each individual element and figure out exactly what makes it tick as a composition.”

The debut is from the all new 2-disc tour edition of TesseracT’s critically acclaimed studio album Polaris, with bonus disc Errai, released on September 16th via Kscope. The package includes four re-imagined tracks from Polaris by the band’s long time live producer and sound engineer Aidan O’Brien – “Survival”, “Cages”, “Tourniquet” and “Seven Names.”

O’Brien – “In the case of ‘Survival,’ it was amazing to see how the track still retained a real power and drive even when the distorted guitars and drums were stripped away, and it was very exciting to experiment with rebuilding the track around a basic chord structure and Dan’s vocal by using piano, synths and a handful of sound design tricks to push it into a darker and more cinematic direction.”

“Using that as a base to build on meant that when I brought the track back to the band they were able to reinterpret a lot of what they had originally written in a totally new context – capitalising on that darker sound and resulting in an arrangement, which in some ways is much lighter and sparser but in others is far more brooding and menacing.”

The Polaris Tour Edition will be released as a 2 CD set, as well as digitally, with Errai being released as a stand-alone 180g heavyweight clear vinyl with enclosed download code. The CD & LP are available to pre-order:
