DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT Commence Work On New Album - "Some Really Cool Songs Have Been Written In Many Different Vibes"

Devin Townsend Project drummer Ryan van Poederooyen has checked in with the following update:

"Back to the rehearsal space today for some fresh writing sessions with the DTP. Our gear is ready to go for the music Dev has prepared for us. It's going awesome so far. Some really cool songs have been written in many different vibes. Lots to look forward to in 2016 guys!"

In early 2015, the Devin Townsend Project played an incredible sold-out show at London’s legendary Royal Albert Hall, bringing the story of Ziltoid to life on stage, as well as playing tracks from across his back catalogue. This larger-than-life evening was captured on film and was released on November 13th in Europe via Inside Out Music. Check out the 28+ minute clip of Townsend and the band performing three Ocean Machine classics at the show in the same order from the Biomech album; "Funeral", "Bastard" and "The Death Of Music".

Townsend posted the following message on Facebook to coincide with the European release of the DVD:

“Finally, after a ton of work from all involved, we see the release of the Ziltoid at the Royal Albert Hall show! It was a milestone for me, and an experience none of us will soon forget. I hope you can in some way join the experience with us vicariously by watching it...enjoy, and as always: thank you for the opportunity to do this.”

Shot on 15 high-definition cameras, it was directed by Paul M Green (Devin Townsend, Opeth, BB King, Steve Hackett) and features special guests such as Dominique Lenore Persi (Stolen Babies), Chris Jericho (Fozzy) and Jean Savoie, with video narration by Bill Courage, as well as 12 singers and actors as cast and choir.

Townsend states: “The show at The Royal Albert Hall was a great experience. To be able to make artistic expression rooted in creativity and then to be able to articulate it in these sorts of ways - at this sort of venue- was pretty awesome. The whole thing was quite a challenge, but ultimately it worked and we were all very satisfied with it. I completely appreciate the support that has allowed this to happen from the audience, and I thank my team and Inside Out Records for busting ass to make this DVD a reality. I think if you enjoy what I do, you'll really dig it. Thank you so much for the opportunity!”
