Tesseract have been confirmed as support for Devin Townsend Project’s March 2017 UK tour.

Townsend previously announced a run of European shows to mark the release of latest album Transcendence which is due out on September 9. Tesseract join other confirmed openers Between The Buried And Me and Leprous, who will play selected dates.

Tesseract guitarist James Monteith says: “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.”

He adds: “Not only will this be an honour 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.”

Tesseract will release the tour version of their album Polaris on September 16. The package includes bonus disc Errai, with four new songs Survival, Cages, Tourniquet and Seven Names.

Prior to their dates with Devin Townsend Project, Tesseract have lined up a run of shows this year, starting in September.
