Official TesseracT Press Release:
We hope you’re well.
A quick note on the Altered State re-issue ahead of its re-release in a couple of weeks on Friday November 6, 2020.
Off the back of the black, clear and silver vinyl box set having completely sold out in various territories (some clear remain in our Bravado store here and very limited quantitiesof all existing colours via Merch Connection here), we have some good news.
For anyone who missed their preferred format, we’re excited that two further limited edition pressings have been confirmed and are available for pre-order now.
TESSERACT ‘ALTERED STATE’ LIMITED-EDITION 4LP LILAC VINYL— ONLY 200 MADE
English prog-metal stalwarts TesseracT have announced a deluxe vinyl reissue of their critically-acclaimed 2013 album Altered State. The band says, “We always felt like we hit a perfect balance with the presentation on Altered State. And that the concept was made even more striking in a gatefold vinyl package. There’s just something very tactile and real about that iteration. We’re all really looking forward to it being available in that format again.”
Exclusive to Revolver, this variant of Altered State is a 4LP on lilac 180-gram vinyl. This special edition is limited to only 200 copies worldwide, so order your today!
This LP will begin shipping on 11/06/2020.
Tesseract’s critically-acclaimed second album ‘Altered State’ is set to be reissued on the 6th November 2020. The deluxe 4LP + 2CD set features the original album over 2LP’s, as well as the instrumentals over 2LP’s (never before released on vinyl). Each 180g 2LP set comes in its own gatefold sleeve, and both are packaged in a slipcase with 4 x individual insert/lyric sheets. ‘Altered State’ was originally released back in 2013, and is the only album to feature vocalist Ashe O’Hara. It includes the single ‘Nocturne’, which has achieved over 2.7 million views on YouTube, and the album was called “a living, breathing, emotive display of rousing poly-prog” by Rocksound Magazine.
Both pressings are strictly limited to just 200 copies.
As per the other version, both box set formats are 4LP & 2CD sets featuring the original album over 2 x 180g gatefold vinyls with 4 x individual insert/lyric sheets, as well as the instrumentals – never previously released on vinyl – in the same format.
Thanks for reading. Stay safe and we’ll see you soon.
