Devin Townsend continues to push ahead with the recording sessions for his new releases and shared a clip seen HERE of what appears to be a track from the first of those efforts due for a release: “Empath“. While that album is expected out in 2019, December will bring some more Townsend music to vinyl with the third wave of the ongoing ‘Eras‘ vinyl box set reissues due to arrive on December 07th.
“Accelerated Evolution“, “Epicloud“, “Sky Blue“, “Transcendence” and “Devin Townsend Presents: Ziltoid Live At The Royal Albert Hall” will be among that wave.
Over the course of Devin Townsend’s storied career, a single constant has persevered: change. As far back as Steve Vai’s Sex & Religion, which Townsend fronted, to 2001’s landmark full-length Terria to the multi-instrumentalist’s country rock outfit Casualties of Cool to his stunning new album Transcendence, the Canadian isn’t too interested in keeping an even musical keel. To stay the proverbial course is, well, anathema. For certain, he’s far too impatient to write the same Strapping Young Lad song over and over—which is why he folded the band in 2007—and it’s likely there will never be a fourth or fifth Ziltoid album (a third if we’re lucky) because by that point he’ll be in a totally different frame of mind for galactic puppets gone awry.
