UK Progressive Metal band, TESSERACT, are excited to welcome Ashe O’Hara into the group as their new vocalist. Ashe’s power, emotion, and diversity will help to continue the distinctive yet ever evolving TESSERACT sound. Hailing from Northampton originally, Ashe spent his early years singing in many different groups, from choirs to musical theatre, and has more recently worked on a number of ambient/alternative metal projects as well as session work. Ashe currently resides in Hove, East Sussex and is eagerly awaiting the upcoming tour and working on the new album.
Comments Ashe: I have always been an admirer of their work so it’s pretty awesome to be passed such a challenging flame. I am very aware of the anticipation and I am certainly feeling the weight of it; but I am equally excited for what shall be an amazing and shithot experience!
TESSERACT adds, “We realize that the vocalist search seemed like it took a long time, but we wanted to make sure that we found someone who was a perfect fit both on stage and in the studio and Ashe is just that. We very much appreciate the patience and support our fans have shown us and look forward to the next TesseracT chapter.”
The first preview of that chapter, a teaser of the song, “Nocturne”, can be heard here:
“Nocturne” will be available as a free download and streaming everywhere on October 12th.
“‘Nocturne’, is one of the most uplifting and exciting pieces of music we have created. It faithfully continues down the same vein of groovy and euphoric progressive soundscapes that we’re known for. Whilst at the same time allowing for the musical evolution that is essential for any band that has a lineup change,” says TESSERACT
TESSERACT also recently picked up the ‘New Blood’ award voted for by readers of PROG magazine at last week’s first ever Progressive Music Awards in their native UK and are preparing to for a small run through the UK and Europe where you will have the chance to meet Ashe, too.
