Just when we thought we couldn’t like TesseracT any more, their drummer, Jay Postones, went off on one at the injustice of being dragged away from Sonic 2 on Christmas Day. Jay – we known that pain. Oh, how we’ve known that pain!
When did you find out Santa Claus wasn’t real and how did it happen?
Santa isn’t real? Shit.
What was your best Christmas present ever?
After waiting for what seemed like decades, I woke up one Christmas morning to a Sega Megadrive! Wicked! Except I was forced, halfway through Sonic 2 to turn the TV off, pack up and sit patiently in the back of my parents car while we drove for 2 hours to my uncles for Christmas dinner. Wasn’t happy.
If you could have Christmas dinner with any 6 people, who would you invite?
My Mum (to cook the best dinner ever!), my Dad (to provide the whiskey), Michael Caine (dressed as Scrooge), Will Ferrel (dressed as Elf), Macaulay Culkin (dressed as a child) and Santa (dressed as himself).
Turkey: are you a leg or breast person?
What is your favourite Christmas drink?
Do you have any particular or unusual Christmas traditions?
Every year my parents buy me these lemon and orange sugar slice things from Sainsburys. I think I stopped eating them like 5 years ago but it wouldn’t be Christmas without them!
What’s the furthest you’ve ever had to travel to get “home” for Christmas? Has touring ever forced you to celebrate Christmas somewhere else?
This year – back from India! That’s pretty damn far!
Which metaller would you least like to see approaching you with mistletoe?
Watch the video to ‘Concealing Fate – Part ii: Deception’ by TesseracT:
What would you get Kerry King for Christmas? You can’t choose Jagermeister.
A hedge trimmer.
If a bearded man broke into your house through the chimney on any other day of the year, what would you do?
Shave him and/or offer him mince pies.
Which one of Santa’s reindeer would you be and why? (Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donder, Blitzen and Rudolf.)
Probably Rudolph, just ’cause of the nose.
What’s been your worst New Year’s Eve experience (because NYE always sucks).
Waking up upside down and drunk in a shower, having missed New Year’s was pretty shit. Similarly the next year, although this time everything in my bedroom had been turned upside down. Literally.
What will your New Year’s Resolution be?
Drink more whiskey, play loads more shows, release One and if we end up in Australia, SKYDIVE! Actually I guess only the last one counts as, the first three are all definitely happening.
TesseracT are set to finally release their debut album, One, sometime around the early Spring of next year. The band will be going on tour across the UK again at the end of January, this time alongside Periphery and Monuments for ‘The League of Djentlemen’ Tour, which we think you’ll agree is the coolest name for a tour ever. The band are also planning on heading back over to the USA and Canada at some point for what they promise will be their longest tour to date.
