Devin Townsend Project Updates About Festival Details

After releasing “Addicted” Devin Townsend went straight on the road and just finished a tour throughout Australia and New Zealand on which he played around two hours of music each night.

Besides recoding the final parts of his next album, entitled "Deconstruction," Devin is currently plotting, scheming and organizing a special double performance for the Finnish Tuska festival. On the night of July 2nd he will be headlining the festival with a one-off world exclusive Ziltoid show. On July 3rd he will play a DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT set which will feature songs of the latest release “Addicted” as well as material from “Ki” and many more songs from his back-catalogue. The European festival season will be followed by a 5-6 week tour through the USA and Canada starting in October.

Devin states "I have to say, things just keep getting deeper. I have a feeling that my proudest creative moments are yet to come, and my focus right now is really great. I think there's something about the perspective gained from the few years off that has gone a long way. Relearning what my motivations were as an artist really came from having some clear headed time to reflect. I'm so ready, and love what I do. Thank you for still being here (those of you who are!). That being said, I've been writing late into the nights, and although Deconstruction will confuse and possibly annoy some (many?) I believe it's a real triumph for me. Yes, it's 'heavy', but in the same way that 'Alien' was indicative of my thoughts at that age, Deconstruction is a mirror of my now. Dare I say 'mature?' ... nah. But it's pretty over the edge."

I'm going to hope against hope that Devin will do another "Ziltoid" show for one of the US dates. Love that album. Also, I agree with Grim, cant wait for the next 2 pieces of the puzzle.
