Canadian madman Devin Townsend (Strapping Young Lad) has booked off half of August and all of September to record the new Devin Townsend Band album. It is tentatively called "Sychestra" (changed from from the previously announced "Human"). The Devin Townsend Band DVD will likely be released as a bonus disc with the album and not independently. Like in 2003, Devin thinks that the two records will artistically complement as well as contradict one another.

In related news, Strapping Young Ladbassist Byron Stroud will be back with Fear Factory for the Gigantour in the USA, featuring Megadeth, Dream Theater, The Dillinger Escape Plan and Nevermore. Meanwhile, Will Campagna has returned as Strapping Young Lad's keyboard player and will be joining them on the upcoming Sounds of the Underground tour beginning in late June. This tour is different in that it starts in the morning and the bands are separated into three tiers, rotating order within each tier for each performance. SYL are in Tier 2 and are scheduled to play somewhere between 3 and 6 p.m. each date. Somewhere between Tier 2 and 3, there will be a special "half-time show" performance by GWAR.
