Interview with James & Jay of TesseracT

DIMMU BORGIR - Eonian

Coming from the land that gave birth to heavy metal, these five guys called TesseracT have made a lot of buzz in the underground metal community for a while. They released their first album One at the beginning of the year. Before that, they played on big European festivals like Hammerfest & Bloodstock without even having an album out. In 2010, they signed with Century Media and toured with Devin Townsend.

Last week we sat down and talked with James Monteith (guitar) & Jay Postones (drums) of TesseracT during their stop in Tucson, AZ, as they are currently touring with Animals As Leaders and Between The Buried And Me. We talked about their new album, the tour, their new singer and what’s coming up for them.

This is the first big tour you guys have done in the US. How’s it going?
