White Moth Black Butterfly, the project of TesseracT‘s Daniel Tompkins, have announced their new album The Cost Of Dreaming, set for release on 28th May 2021 via Kscope.
The project sees Tompkins collaborating with New-Delhi based Skyharbor songwriter and producer Keshav Dhar, US based producer and string arranger Randy Slaugh, who has previously worked with Devin Townsend, Architects and Periphery, drummer Mac Christensen, and singer and lyricist Jordan Turner.
“Our new album The Cost of Dreaming is something we feel just about every human being on the planet that’s been affected by life changing disruption will relate strongly to,” says Tompkins. “Our nature is to always be planning, dreaming about an ideal future in which we will have ticked various boxes that define our ideal lives, often at the cost of the present. And when control over that future is seized away from us and all we are left with is the present, we realise just how much we took for granted. Life is surely a gift to us all throughout which we experience moments of soaring bliss and happiness, and then in a heartbeat sink into states of great trouble and suffering. Often our struggles can serve as momentous opportunities for growth, but the balance of life can often hold us back from seizing the day. We believe that this album is our greatest achievement – it’s an outpouring of love and a cry for help.”
