DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT: First Webisode of “Transcendence” Studio Report Available

DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT: First Webisode of "Transcendence" Studio Report Available

The first of seven webisodes featuring behind-the-scenes footage from the making of Transcendence, the new album from Devin Townsend Project, the band led by Canadian musician/producer Devin Townsend, can be seen below. Shot by videographer and good friend of the band Mike “ZimZim” Zimmer between March and April 2016, the episode features Devin explaining a bit about the album’s recording process.

Due 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), 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 will be 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.
