Devin Townsend To Unleash ‘ERAS,’ Four Vinyl Box Sets
Devin Townsend has announced plans to release four limited edition vinyl box sets. The first in the ERAS series, aptly titled Part One, will feature the four albums from The Devin Townsend Project -- Ki, Addicted, Deconstruction and Ghost -- which were recorded between 2009 and 2011
The first installment will be released on June 8 on 180-gram vinyl and feature extensive liner notes, lyrics and more in an elaborate box set, which is limited to 2000 copies worldwide. To pre-order the effort, available in various colored vinyl versions, click here.
Hevy Devy released the following statement about the quadrilogy: “The Devin Townsend Project, although it went further than I had originally planned, began life as these four albums. Ki, Addicted, Deconstruction and Ghost. The music evolved in line with a period of intense personal growth, and the albums in chronological order were meant to illustrate that change. The amount of people involved with this was extensive, and the journey was one that defined my career in ways I cannot over express. These four albums are really what the Devin Townsend Project was about.”
He added, “I have been asked repeatedly over the last few years to provide these albums on vinyl, in one set. So we took this opportunity to put together 'ERAS', which is the definitive vinyl box set encapsulating this period of my life and work that I am exceptionally proud of. As always, this wouldn't have come to fruition without the support of the tremendous audience who has allowed it to flourish, so respect to both yourselves, the people involved, and the music itself, we present to you; 'ERAS'. Thank you for allowing me to continue to do what I do."
Devin Townsend recently opened up about how his relationship with metal has changed, as he has gotten older. He said in part, “My desire to fill my world with sound rarely involves metal.” The Devin Townsend Project’s last album was 2016’s Transcendence. Townsend has since disbanded the group earlier this year to focus on other musical endeavors. He recently shared that he has over 100 new songs in a variety of different forms and styles for his next project.
