Devin Townsend is preparing his Christmas livestream, which he first discussed in an interview with Ghost Cult, as well as working on a variety of new music projects. He just shared a new song written recently, which he says may appear on an album at some point! Devy recently released part I of a two-part live album, Order of Magnitude: Empath Live Volume 1 (read our review here). Listen to the new song “Equinox” here.
Devin Townsend has announced a new live album based on his wildly successful quarantine charity livestream shows, and a new series of events too. The first new concert took place this past weekend in support of Vancouver’s General Hospital, selling close to 2000 tickets, and raising nearly 50,000 dollars. Devin has put together an impressive 4-camera rig for these streams, controlled using nothing more than an Xbox controller. You can watch a recording below. The second will be in support of the NHS in the UK, and the third will be in support of hotspot hospitals in New York. Shows will last around 50 minutes, with different setlists each time. The top donors for each show will receive signed merchandise from Omerch, album goodies from InsideOut as well as several high-end products from a number of Devin’s gear companies such as Mooer, Fractal, Toontrack, Dunlop and |Fishman to name a few. All ticket buyers will also receive a (somewhat tidied-up) remixed version of the show’s audio recording. Devy will also release Order Of Magnitude – Empath Live Volume 1 on October 23, a document of his winter 2019 European tour that saw him taking on possibly his most ambitious live show to date.Continue reading
