TesseracT, having recently released their new music video for “Hexes”, are giving fans a glimpse into how the stunning clip was created by Dan Tompkins and director George Laycock (Blacktide Phonic/Visual) with this ‘behind the scenes’ footage. What was it like to film inside the Columbus Space Module at the Leicester National Space Centre? What tricks did they use to create the water scenes? How long can Martin Grech stay in a zorb? Dan Tompkins reveals the answers and more in the video above.

TesseracT vocalist Dan Tompkins states “This behind the scenes video highlights our depth of collaboration; creatively we feel this is one of our best works”. He continues “On first contact with Blacktide we knew that we had found the right team. The video was shot over four different locations scattered across the UK. Without a doubt Hexes is the most cohesive and impactful video we have made to date and we’re extremely proud of the end result.

The original “Hexes” music video can be watched below, along with the new re-worked version of “Survival”.


The new 2016 edition of Polaris comes with a bonus second disc Errai which features four re-worked tracks from Polaris – “Survival”, “Cages”, “Tourniquet” and “Seven Names”. The tracks have been re-imagined by the band’s long time live producer and sound engineer Aidan O’Brien. The Polaris Tour Edition is available as a 2 CD set, with Errai released as a stand-alone 180g heavyweight clear vinyl with enclosed download code.

Tracklist for the Errai EP:
1. Survival (Re-imagined)
2. Cages (Re-imagined)
3. Tourniquet (Re-imagined)
4. Seven Names (Re-imagined)
