  DEVIN TOWNSEND REVEALS 2ND 'CASUALTIES OF COOL' VIDEO
1 August 2014





Devin Townsend is proud to present to you the 2nd official promo video for Casualties of Cool's 'Flight'. This beautifully haunting video was shot, directed and edited, at his own initiative, by Konrad Palkeiwicz who is one of Devin's dearest friends.

Devin comments: "Casualties Of Cool is one of my favourite things, if not my favourite thing I've done to date. It's pretty left of centre, and now that my big Z2 project and all its chaos is nearing completion, it means even more to me. A dark and quiet place to go. Finally, its available for people who didn't order through Pledge, and I'm proud to present the video for 'Flight', done by long-time friend and collaborator Konrad Palkeiwicz. Konrad moved to an Island and filmed his interpretation of the song and I think it's beautiful.

"We have been rehearsing for our upcoming shows at Union Chapel and Savoy Teatteri in Finland, and it's really a pleasure to have the ability to do this type of music. Thank you for the support!" Dev

A project over four years in the making, largely at night when home from turning the dial up for the day job in the studio, 'Casualties of Cool' saw Townsend look at himself in order to go forward. Digging out a battered old Fender amp and telecaster, he revisited the rootsy country and North American folk music of his youth.

Driven simply by the desire to see how things unfolded, free of the usual recording contract constraints and subsequent limits on time, the album released back in June reached No.11 in the Indie album charts and No.77 in the UK album charts.

The album was fully supported by a crowdfunding campaign on Pledge Music reaching nearly 550% of its intended target which made it one of the most successful crowdfunding campaigns to date. This huge success also contributed to Devin winning the prestigious 'King of the Internet' award at the 2014 Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards which were held in London on June 16.

The long awaited stock of physical CDs of 'Casualties of Cool' have also finally arrived at Devin's official online merch store along with a few other cool Casualties items. Available stock is extremely limited.

Upcoming Casualties of Cool shows:
Aug 17th - Beautiful Days Festival, Devon, UK - SOLD OUT
Sept 4th - Union Chapel, London UK
Sept 6th - Savoy Teatteri, Helsinki FI






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

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.
