Devin Townsend Project‘s tour alongside Paradise Lost, Katatonia and Stolen Babies dubbed, “Epic Kings & Idols Tour,” recently came to a close, but not before decimating NYC’s Irving Plaza on September 23rd. We first posted photos from the concert HERE. A bunch of new pics from the show can be viewed below.
Speaking of Devin Townsend, the multi-talented singer, songwriter, instrumentalist, producer and now apparently ringleader, is preparing to infiltrate London’s Roundhouse venue on October 27th for a three hour plus event being labeled, The Retinal Circus. This one-night only event is completely sold out (for over a year now) but will be available for live worldwide stream for a minimal fee over at LiveMusicStage.com. Devin describes The Retinal Circus as…
a retrospective of my career in music to date, with the central theme being a metaphor of how life and the adventures therein are a ‘circus’ of sorts. The show involves a cast of characters and guests that support this theme through carnival type performances. A story about how a troubled young man dreams of fantastic scenarios, (illustrated through the music of my back catalogue), which ultimately crests in the characters realization that life is all about the relationships we have with each other. This is the first opportunity I have been given to make theatrical representations of my music.
The Retinal Circus will be recorded for both DVD and Blu-ray, likely to be released sometime 2nd quarter 2013 via InsideOutMusic.
Devin Townsend Project‘s new album, Epicloud, is out now. Stream the album’s first single “Lucky Animals” after the pics.
English gothic metallers Paradise Lost are out supporting a new album as well, their April 2012 Century Media release, Tragic Idol. Last month Loudwire premiered the music video for Paradise Lost’s new song “Fear of Impending Hell.” Make sure to watch it at the end of this page. You can also stream Tragic Lost in FULL over at Decibel Magazine.
