It’s been a slightly miserable day today in terms of the weather. It was overcast with a small breeze. It was the type of weather that makes me crave the fun of Halloween. I want rain. I want grey clouds. I want fog. I want leafless trees. All of this combined made me decide that the Twisted Music Video Of The Week was going to be “Vampira” from none other than Devin Townsend Band! The song comes from the 2006 album Synchestra (Inside Out Music).
A new track Devin Townsend Project‘s upcoming album Epicloud entitled “True North” was streamed earlier today. Listen to it here.
Devin Townsend Project just hit the road as co-headliners alongside Katatonia on the “Epic Kings & Idols” Tour. Paradise Lost and Stolen Babies are opening. Tour dates can be found below.

What is with amazing tours not having the decency to stop in my neck of the woods? Yesterday it was the Kansas/King’s X tour that got my hopes up before crushing them entirely. Today it has been announced that Devin Townsend Project and Katatonia will be headlining the “Epic Kings And Idols” tour, which sees support coming from Paradise Lost and Stolen Babies. DTP and Katatonia will alternate headlining each show.
DTP will be touring in support of their upcoming album Epicloud (no official release date announced) while Katatonia will be supporting their upcoming album Dead End Kings (coming out Aug. 28th). This tour also sees Paradise Lost back in the States after a five-year hiatus.
You can see all the tour dates below (No Detroit date means I’m weeping as I write this). READ MORE
