TesseracT have shared a performance video of Nocturne taken from their P O R T A L S live cinematic experience. The event which took place in December 2020 saw the band performing a 14 song setlist which spanned their back catalogue.

Nocturne has been a firm fan and band favourite since it was released ahead of the ‘Altered State’ album cycle. As such, we threw a lot into the performance, which was matched by our production team, who really pushed the envelope with what they achieved during this track. The laser effects and lighting is powerful and emotive, and Rich’s cinematography really hits the mark,” says bassist Amos Williams.

Every tour produces a slightly different version of this track, as our mindset waxes and wanes, but this version of Nocturne is a real high mark for us we feel; it was just so much fun to perform after not performing it for a year. So, why didn’t we close the show with this song if it was so fun? The thought did cross our minds, we figured everybody would want that. But, we wanted to sit outside our comfort zone with an ‘encore’ of real deep cuts and fan favourites. Thus, Nocturne (P O R T A L S) was the perfect handover between the desired and expected, as well as an excellent guide for everyone as we turned to face the weird and wonderful direction of the final act.

On 27th August 2021, the film and soundtrack of the event will be released via Kscope. Fans will be able to purchase it on a number of editions including Blu-Ray, Triple LP soundtrack and a deluxe four-disc book edition.
