British progressive metal act TesseracT have announced a Spring North American tour in support of their most recent release Altered State. The band will be joined on most stops of the tour by the likes of Intronaut and Cloudkicker. The biggest news of all of this is that this will be Cloudkicker’s first live tour. Ben Sharp, the creator of Cloudkicker, will be joined on stage by the members of Intronaut to bring his music to life. On the tour, Sharp comments:
This just happened to be a time when Intronaut was free and, incredibly, I was able to get the entire month of April off from work. We have been in touch since 2010 and they had told me a few times that we could make this happen, but it wasn’t until last fall that I decided to give it an honest effort. Having the professionalism and technical proficiency of a band like Intronaut was the piece of the puzzle that finally encouraged me to pursue this since they are making it so easy for me. I know that when we show up for the first night of the tour everything will be locked in and we can just focus on having a good time.
Intronaut also weighed in:
When we first met Ben a few years back and discovered the Cloudkicker album “Beacons“, we unanimously fell in love with it and have since bugged him to let us be his band. Now it is finally happening. Intronaut is absolutely over the moon about this once in a lifetime opportunity for Cloudkicker fans to hear his stuff live. Sweetening the deal even further is the fact that we get to do the tour with our favorite British chaps in TesseracT. This tour is going to kick ass!
