Tesseract has been confirmed to be part of the Devin Townsend Project’s U.K. tour for 2017.

Devin Townsend has formerly announced a European tour in support of his upcoming album “Transcendence”, planned for release on September 9. “Transcendence” will be the first album released by Townsend since their 2014 “Z2”.


The Devin Townsend European tour will be supported by three progressive metal bands: Tesseract for the shows in the U.K.Between the Buried and ME for shows across Europe, and Leprous for both Europe and U.K. shows.

Tesseract’s guitarist James Monteith comments on touring with Devin Townsend as follows:

We are beyond stoked to be touring with the Devin Townsend Project and playing such great venues around the UK next year[…]Not only are we all huge fans of the band, they also hold a very special place in our hearts as they were the first band who ever took us on the road in the USA and Canada. They gave us a huge leg up in the touring game, were great mentors, advisers, all-round amazing dudes to hang out with, and they have remained our friends ever since[…]Not only will this be an honor on a musical level, it’ll be great to spend some time with them once again. Plus having Leprous on the bill is definitely the icing on the cake – they’re a phenomenal band and really help to make this bill special.”
