Tesseract Announce North American Tour with Intronaut, Cloudkicker

See also

UK Progressive rock band TesseracT will once again be returning to North America. It will be TesseracT‘s third tour supporting their critically acclaimed "Altered State" album, which placed #6 on The Examiner's Top 50 Albums of 2013 List. Former touring partners, Intronaut, who will be coming fresh off a tour of their own with Between The Buried and Me and Deafheaven will be direct support. To make these events even more special, instrumentalists, DIY prog artist, Cloudkicker, will be touring for the first time ever with the members of Intronaut as his backing band.

Comments TesseracT:

Last year we spent a few short weeks with a bunch of west coast musicians called Intronaut, stalwarts of the scene who have been honing their skills for years into an awesome blend of progressive jazz tinged metal. For as long as we can remember there has been a home studio producer of genre defying music called Cloudkicker. He has until now been restricted to the studio. So, it’s with great pleasure that we get to rejoin our brothers in Intronaut, and be a part of Cloudkicker’s first ever tour! This will be seriously fun.

Intronaut comments:

When we first met Ben a few years back and discovered the Cloudkicker album “Beacons”, we unanimously fell in love with it and have since bugged him to let us be his band. Now it is finally happening. Intronaut is absolutely over the moon about this once in a lifetime opportunity for Cloudkicker fans to hear his stuff live. Sweetening the deal even further is the fact that we get to do the tour with our favorite British chaps in TesseracT. This tour is going to kick ass!

Cloudkicker, aka, Ben Sharp elaborates:

This just happened to be a time when Intronaut was free and, incredibly, I was able to get the entire month of April off from work. We have been in touch since 2010 and they had told me a few times that we could make this happen, but it wasn’t until last fall that I decided to give it an honest effort. Having the professionalism and technical proficiency of a band like Intronaut was the piece of the puzzle that finally encouraged me to pursue this since they are making it so easy for me. I know that when we show up for the first night of the tour everything will be locked in and we can just focus on having a good time.
