Video Premiere: DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT's 'Stormbending'

Posted October 14, 2016 by Josh Drespling in Empire Extreme News Feed

“Stormbending”, the new video from DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT, the band led by Canadian musician/producer Devin Townsend, can be seen at The track is taken from DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT‘s new album, “Transcendence”, which was released on September 9.

The follow-up to 2014’s “Z2” double album (half of which was made up of the DTP full-length “Sky Blue”), “Transcendence” sees the award-winning Townsend exploring a relatively new way of working, collaborating with the entire DTP band during the writing stages of the record. “The result of this process is a record that I truly think the intention of is special,” he says of the album. “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.”

“Transcendence” was made available as a limited 2CD digipak (featuring an extra disc of eleven additional new tracks), standard CD jewelcase and gatefold heavyweight 2LP + CD with etching (on various colours), as well as digital download.

Townsend tells The Independent: “It’s so easy to say, ‘Everything’s shit, man — it’s all going to hell.’ Making a statement that is positive was really where I wanted the power of this record to be rooted. Not in a naive way, and not as a means of escape. I wanted to make something that’s really beautiful, but strong.

“There’s a ton of people that aren’t giving up and you have to really fight to not give up, so this record is a celebration of that spirit.”

The “Transcendence” artwork was once again created by Anthony Clarkson, whom Devin has been working with for several years now.
