We caught up with John Tucker to talk a little more about our latest release ‘Fractures’, some of the concepts behind it and how it all came together.

“With their third album ‘Fractures’ just released, progressive metal outfit Dakesis should be riding the crest of a wave, and yet although current events have scrubbed both the planned album launch party and ensuing tour for the foreseeable future the quartet – Gemma Lawler (vocals), Matt Jones (guitar), Amie Chatterley (bass / vocals) and Adam Harris (drums / vocals) – are still pretty positive, looking to reschedule things as soon as normality returns.

The band are based in… Well, I’ll leave that to Amie, who’s obviously proud of the local heritage. “We are based in the home of heavy metal – Birmingham! What could be more inspiring than that? We are truly blessed that we have so many awesome bands that have pre-date us, but also a lot of new blood that are really pushing boundaries and being surrounded by so much awesome music right here in our hometown also really helps inspire us.”
