DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT NEW TOUR DATES AND NEW ALBUM INFO

devin townsend

After the release of 'Addicted', Devin Townsend hit the road and has just completed a tour of Australia and New Zealand where he played around two hours of music each night.

Devin is currently recording the final parts of his next album, entitled 'Deconstruction" as well as plotting, scheming and organizing a special double performance for the Finnish Tuska festival.

On the night of July 2nd he will be headlining the festival with a one-off world exclusive Ziltoid show and on July 3rd he will play a Devin Townsend set which will feature songs from 'Addicted' as well as material from 'Ki' and many more songs from his back-catalogue.

After the European festivals, Devin will embark on a 5-6 week tour through the USA and Canada which begins in October.

Devin states "I have to say, things just keep getting deeper. I have a feeling that my proudest creative moments are yet to come, and my focus right now is really great. I think there's something about the perspective gained from the few years off that has gone a long way.

"Relearning what my motivations were as an artist really came from having some clear headed time to reflect. I'm so ready, and love what I do. Thank you for still being here (those of you who are!). That being said, I've been writing late into the nights, and although Deconstruction will confuse and possibly annoy some (many?) I believe it's a real triumph for me.

"Yes, it's 'heavy', but in the same way that 'Alien' was indicative of my thoughts at that age, Deconstruction is a mirror of my now. Dare I say 'mature?' ... nah. But it's pretty over the edge."

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
