Devin Townsend Project Posts Live "Planet Of The Apes" Video

Renowned multi-instrumentalist Devin Townsend has now released his new DVD box-set, "By A Thread - Live in London 2011," via HevyDevy Records / InsideOut Music. To give fans yet another glimpse of the box-set's contents, the Devin Townsend Project has premiered a video clip of "Planet Of The Apes" (taken from the "Deconstruction" performance) on Metalhammer.de here. You can also check out the clip below.

A previously posted video from the DVD is available here. "By A Thread - Live in London 2011" contains a 4-DVD set with footage from the unique, sold-out UK shows from last fall where Devin performed all four DTP albums (Ki, Addicted, Ghost, Deconstruction), along with a 5-CD set with the four DTP albums and one disc of encores. In addition to the 4 DVDs and 5 CDs, the deluxe edition of "By A Thread - Live in London 2011" also includes an exclusive 7" with take 2 of the track "Coast" (Devin's hand-drawn etching is on the B-side), plus an autographed and numbered collector's certificate of authenticity.

This September, DTP and Katatonia will team-up for the "Epic Kings & Idols Tour," a co-headlining North American run featuring Paradise Lost as direct support and Stolen Babies as openers.

That was just BAD. ASS.

This just proves what an unhinged master Devy is.
Heavy, Funny, Beautiful, Melodic... all in the same song. There is so much going on seeing it live really opens your
eyes to the multiple layers weaving through it.

And Dirk is a monster behind the kit. Just jawdropping.
