DANIEL TOMPKINS Releases “Ruins: Live Experience”

TesseracT vocalist, Daniel Tompkins’ Ruins: Live Experience” is now available digitally for the first time.

Where previously the ‘Ruins: Live Experience’ was available for a one time only viewing, now Daniel Tompkins releases ‘Ruins: Live’. The release showcases a truer, darker tone with an emphasis on aggression and was recorded during November 26th’s lavish live-stream performance in celebration of the album ‘Ruins’. Tompkins was joined by Amos Williams (Tesseract), Mike Malyan (Monuments), Paul Ortiz (Chimpspanner) and Pete Skipper (In Colour) for this glorious live feature.

Now for the first time ever, fans will be able to relive the live experience of this high-quality production that until now has been locked away.

Regarding the show Dan had the following to say:

“This whole project was a huge undertaking for me as a solo artist but with the help of my good friends Amos, Mike, Paul and Pete we pulled together such a wonderful show that I will cherish forever. 

I never dreamt that I would take Ruins live around the UK, especially during a very unstable time post pandemic!  There were so many fans worldwide that were upset they wouldn’t be able to travel and catch a show, so having already had the experience of developing a live online show (PORTALS) with TesseracT, I decided to do it myself

Tompkins released his most recent solo album ‘Ruins’ in December 2020 via Kscope. The album saw him rework his debut album ‘Castles’ alongside producer Paul Ortiz (Chimp Spanner) showcasing re-written music with more aggression and a truer, darker tone.

The album featured guest artists and additional co-creators including Paul Ortiz (Chimp Spanner), Plini and Trivium frontman and guitarist Matt Heafy.

Fans can still order ‘Ruins’ on vinyl, CD and digitally from
