The Devin Townsend Project Unveil ‘Failure’ From Upcoming Album ‘Transcendence’
Hevy Devy is back! The Devin Townsend Project have just revealed the fresh track “Failure” from their upcoming full-length, Transcendence.
Transcendence will be Devin Townsend’s 18th album, and that’s not even counting his work with Strapping Young Lad! The incredibly prolific musician released the heavily anticipated Ziltoid sequel, Z2, in 2014 – just months after delving into country territory with Casualties of Cool.
“Transcendence, like every record I’ve done prior, is an extension of what’s been going on in my world, represented in a new batch of songs,” says Townsend. “I’m 44 years old now, and this is where I have been over the past two years since Z2. The result of this process is a record that I truly think the intention of is special. I ‘found’ gas to put into the tank and am glad I did. I think the intention, the theme, and the participation of everyone involved allows this album to act like a fulcrum between the past few years and what I intend to do next with the symphony. I am very proud of it and everyone involved.”
“Failure” is now being eagerly devoured by Devin Townsend fans, who are hardcore by any standard. Devin’s uplifting vocals are joined by those of an operatic female singer, adding extra dimension to “Failure.”
Transcendence will be released on Sept. 2 via Townsend’s own HevyDevy label. Fans can pre-order the new album in CD and vinyl bundles, some of which even come with their own incense sticks.
