DEVIN TOWNSEND Guests On The Jasta Show, Takes On Fan Q&A (Video)

Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta has uploaded the latest episode of The Jasta Show (#606) featuring Devin Townsend. Check out the interview below.

Jasta: "A master of many things, Devin Townsend, the legend himself is my guest on this all new episode of The Jasta Show! I had some internet issues on this one so while Brian and myself are sorting that out Devin takes some questions from the Patreon audience! Then when I get back we get into some of our favorite stories from the road and what's in store for the future!"

Townsend is currently working on his new project, Lightwork, with producer GGGarth Richardson at The Farm Studios in Vancouver, BC. He offered an update on the project via a Twitter thread found here. Check it out below.

Townsend. "I’ve never worked with a producer before, and the idea was for Puzzle and Lightwork to be opposites, so where puzzle was a chaotic, independent art project, Lightwork is meant to be streamlined with a producer

I had feared that experimenting with having a producer would dilute it, but man… it’s really good… really happening, and the sounds are quite magnificent.

After these two projects, I’ll dig in to The Moth (which is a musical) so it’s almost like checking off a ‘to do’ list of creative ideas. By Christmas time, after the Infinity stream, I’ll be able to take a breath for a few months… but not yet :)

Life is short and I’m very grateful for the ability to do what I do. I just really want to do all these things…and I've had the opportunity lately, so thanks for the support in making them happen.

Puzzle is strange and artsy, Lightwork is streamlined and melodic, The Moth is super ambitious…one leads into the other…"
