Officer Tompkins, pulling you over for not being prog enough.

Did you know that current Tesseract frontman Daniel Tompkins used to be a cop? Me either! He recently spoke to Metal Hammer where he said that was essentially way better off financially being a copy, and even reveals just how much he's got left in the band despite being in a relatively big band that tours the world.

"I'm not lying when I say I've got £100 in my bank account right now. In the six years I've been doing this, I'm not anywhere near the wage that I used to be on when I was a copper."

He also says the band's song "Survival" (below) is about struggling financially. It's interesting that Tompkins comes out and says this because I think some people are under the impression that just because a band is out touring and making music, all its members are at least getting by.
