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."
