FRAMESHIFT Mastermind HENNING PAULY Interviews DEVIN TOWNSEND - "Two Bald Guys Get Really Deep" (Video)
October 2, 2015, 5 years ago
Guitarist/producer and online music instruction guru Henning Pauly (Frameshift) has checked in with the following update:
"If you’ve ever dreamed of two bald guys going at it in depth, then this is the video for you. I mean, getting really deep…. no, wait, I meant TALKING about a variety of issues IN DEPTH, and then there’s religion, culture, pedals, guitars, feelings… are we even musicians?
I had an amazing time with one of my personal heroes.
I want to thak Paul Krömmelbein for rescuing this interview by realizing that the ONLY mic that was still working was not even plugged in and fixing that in the first few seconds…. thanks!"
Earlier this year, Devin Townsend Project played an incredible sold-out show at London’s legendary Royal Albert Hall venue, 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 is set to be released on November 13th.
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!”
The release will arrive on several formats including an artbook of 44 pages including the entire concert as well as extensive behind-the-scenes bonus footage and a full documentary, pressed on 3 CDs, 2 DVDs and a Blu Ray Disc, as Special Edition Digipak with 3 CDs and a DVD and as BluRay including the entire show and bonus material.
