I did an art layout for the Iceland ep that didn’t get used for Only Half There. I’d like to make the art available for people to download and print if they’d like… to make it complete
A Message from Devin
Hey guys, Devin here.
So after 8 years of touring with DTP, I’ve decided to take a break from this band and focus on a number of other projects I’ve been really wanting to do for some time now. The band have been there with me through thick and thin and we’ve shared some pretty great moments – I can’t say enough good things about them – And in the future, I’m sure we’ll work again.
I have 4 new albums I am currently working on. I am currently in the finishing stages one of the grandest and most overwhelming projects that I have been fortunate to do. It’s certainly my favourite DVD release of them all and is a powerful moment, if I can say so myself. Ocean Machine Live In Plovdiv (tentative name) Mixing the orchestras, choirs, the ‘by-request’ set and the full Ocean Machine album in that magnificent setting has been hugely rewarding. Seeing this spectacle come to life is a testament to this period of work and I can’t wait for you to see and hear it.
Life is short and I have a lot I need to say in some new and different avenues. I will certainly continue to play live in several new ways (starting next year) and I’m excited about some collaborative things that have also come up as well.
I salute the band, the team, and the audience for allowing us to do what we have done and the patience to accommodate my persistent morphing. As someone who’s music is connected to his personal growth, I feel an obligation to follow this muse wherever it leads. To not do so would be in direct opposition to what it is I have fundamentally done for all these years.
Peace and respect,

Devin Townsend Project’s Transcendence.
Transcendence is OUT NOW!!!
You can order Transcendence from:
Inside Out Music
New Damage Records (Canada)
Recorded at The Armoury Studios in Vancouver, Canada with Townsend and Adam ‘Nolly’ Getgood (Periphery, Animals as Leaders), Transcendence sounds absolutely massive. From the moment ‘Truth’, a re-work from the Infinity album, monstrously blends into the soul-stirring ‘Stormbending’ to the undulating cool of mid-point jam ‘Secret Sciences’ and Ween cover ‘Transdermal Celebration’, Townsend and crew have engineered a modern-day classic. The sheer scale of tracks like ‘Failure’, ‘Higher’, and the majestic title track is at once daunting and inviting. Transcendence pulls the listener in like a movie score. It has the emotional heft of Rosenman’s Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home and the mega-riff power of Black-era Metallica.
I am I
18 years ago I did a little art project that has resurfaced recently
GearWhore, where I use my dubious status in the industry to promote stuff companies have let me have. Its pretty sweet…but to be honest, its rooted in a practical application. The stuff in this series is actually equipment I use to do my job
