Tesseract originally streamed their Portals performance in December 2020, which ran just over two hours and encompassed the band's decade-plus career. Tesseract will release Portals as a live album on August 27 on vinyl, CD, and Blu-Ray, and is now streaming "Tourniquet".
"We wanted to bring a balance of fan favorites and deep cuts to the show. 'Tourniquet' is one of those songs that sits firmly in both of those camps and is one we have never performed live before. It's such a powerful build-up that we knew we had to find a really interesting way to support this visually," said bassist Amos Williams.
"The team of Tom Campbell (LD), Dan Briggs (Lasers), and Richard Oaks (DP) really brought their 'A' game. When we saw this footage back, it was mesmerizing. Once again, this song highlights just what a wonderful team effort this was. The colors, the vibe, the cinematography — it all intertwines to lift the song to another level."
Pre-orders are available here, and Portals will run as follows:
- "Of Matter"
- "Concealing Fate Parts 1, 2 & 3"
- "Beneath My Skin/Mirror Image"
- "Of Energy"
- "Seven Names"
