Singer songwriter and TesseracT vocalist Daniel Tompkins, has announced the release of two new solo singles – “The Abyss”, which is released today, Thursday 30th June and “Frenzy” on the 7th July to coincide with his collaboration with Alpha Delta Brewery to launch a DIPA called “Liquid Hype”
“I've had these songs in the pipeline for some time after a spell of writing last year. They showcase a different side of me that's been bubbling away. I really felt like I needed to ramp up the energy and these two tracks definitely get me excited for the new album that I'm working on with Mac Christensen 'Deeper Kind' and Paul Ortiz aka 'Chimpspanner'
Whilst The Abyss is a upbeat song about rising above uncertainty, Frenzy, which you can hear next week, is a full-frontal assault - it's like screaming in the mirror at yourself to keep going” Tompkins comments.
He continues “I wrote these songs last year, handled the guitars, all tracked with my OD Guitars 'Cybele' and decided to bring in Mac Christensen aka Deeper Kind (White Moth Black Butterfly) as a co-producer,
on these two songs - he's really helped to bring them to life.
The mix and master was handled by Forrester Savell (Producer, Mixer) who I've worked with previously on Skyharbor's 'Guiding Lights' and WMBB's 'The Cost of Dreaming' released last year on Kscope. And talking of WMBB, we are currently working on the next album, too.”
Daniel has teamed up with Newcastle’s Alpha Delta brewery to launch his own IPA - “I'm also very excited to announce that the songs will be accompanied with my very own Double IPA with Alpha Delta, they are master brewers who really know their craft. The DIPA is aptly called 'Liquid Hype' brewed with Strata and Citra hops, it's an 8.5% hazy with passionfruit notes - perfect for the summer. So yes, I'm bringing the hype!"
Alpha Delta are equally excited about the collaboration “We met Daniel at The Delta Lounge, after a Tesseract gig, he was taken by our beers and when it was suggested to collaborate on a brew, it seemed like the obvious thing to do... We're really looking forward to the release of his new music and are chuffed to be working with him... it's a big, juicy DIPA, the sort of beer that we became famous for and we're sure it will find some new advocates amongst Daniel's fans.”

May 2019 saw TesseracT’s lead vocalist and songwriter release his debut solo album Castles, his first foray into a more pop rock electronic sound, which he then followed with Ruins which saw Tompkins rework his debut alongside producer Paul Ortiz (Chimp Spanner), re-writing the music with more aggression and a truer, darker tone. Ruins also featured guest artists and additional co-creators. Paul Ortiz rewrote the music and co-produced, Plini plays guitar on the opener plus the new version featured a brand-new staring Trivium frontman and guitarist, Matt Heafy.
