Lots of exciting stuff happening in camp Townsend!

First off we have just announced full album playback shows at University London Union's venue where the DTP will perform the albums 'Addicted' and 'Deconstruction' from front to back. Together with the already sold out 'Ki' and 'Ghost' album shows the four gigs combined are the accumulation of two years of highly successful touring which brought the DTP to all corners of the world.

Article continues below...

The dates are as follows:

November 2011
10th – UK, London, Union Chapel – KI SHOW (Sold Out!)
11th – UK, London, ULU – ADDICTED SHOW
13th – UK, London, Union Chapel – GHOST SHOW (Sold Out!)

In addition to general admission tickets all four shows also offer VIP packages which contain some pretty exclusive goodies as well as a meet n greet with the whole band and early access to the venues. Only a handful of VIP packages left for the Union Chapel shows. More information on this can be found here.

And of course we wouldn't pass on the opportunity to film all four shows for a DVD box set release to come out sometime next year.

Devin commented: "Hey everyone, this is Devin! Just finishing a really gratifying and incredibly humbling four months of touring. The shows have been really coming along, starting to incorporate visuals, learning what works and what doesn't and having the opportunity to play with amazing bands who I have been fans of for years.

"The next step is to rehearse the four albums from The Project, and we will play four special shows in London covering the gamut of musical moments that have been a part of this past four years with many cool surprises."

And if that isn't all, Devin will also release an 8 disc (!!!) box set through InsideOut Music which is set for release this November. DT: "I just finished the box set, and it's pretty epic... 6 CD's and 2 DVD's full of new material. Plus a 72 page hardcover book and everything including the kitchen sink basically...

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand we're not done yet! We've just added three more tour dates to the North American headline tour and we're still looking to fit in a whole bunch of Canadian dates sometime soon. Also just confirmed is the headline slot at this year's Damnation Festival on November 5th, held yearly since 2007 in good ol' Leeds, England."

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.


Wacken 2018 takes place from 2nd to 4th August 20218 and as with Wacken Winter Nights, if you have never experienced all it has to offer, then you owe it to yourself to remedy that.

Already announced for Wacken 2018 are Judas Priest, Nightwish, Running Wild (exclusive), Arch Enemy, Dirkschneider, Doro (Special Anniversary Show), In Extremo, Sepultura, Amorphis, Amaranthe, Firewind, W.A.R., Belphegor, Mantar, Knorkator, Deserted Fear, Watain, Night Demon, Epica, Knorkator, Belphegor, Firewind, Deserted Fear and many more and we'll have more Wacken 2018 announcements during December.

As well as being the greatest Heavy Metal festival in the world, it is without a doubt the Mecca of Metal and the one thing that every single person who loves our music should have on their bucket list.

For 2018, MetalTalk have joined forces with Wacken-Open-Air to help you get to Wacken easily and inexpensively and you can peruse the ticket and travel options right here.
