(PRESS RELEASE): Following the announcement of the long-awaited new Devin Townsend Project albumZ² and the subsequent lightning-fast sell out of London's prestigious Royal Albert Hall venue for his show on the April 13 next year, they can now reveal an extensive run of European shows for 2015 which will include support from Periphery and Shining. They have already announced US dates with Animals As Leaders. Devin had this to say:
"Now that the recording and mixing for Z2 is finished, it's time to gear up for touring again! There's a bunch of events coming up, and one of them that I'm extremely proud to announce is a European headlining tour with support from the incredible Periphery and the insane Shining!
That's a heck of a line -up I think, each band is doing something unique from each other, yet are really well defined. It will be an opportunity for us to explore our back catalogue as well as the Z2 albums, Sky Blue and Dark Matters (from the upcoming double album, Z2)
One of the greatest things about doing this for as long as I have is that we get to do these sorts of awesome events. I can't even begin to express how honoured I am to share the stage with these incredible bands, and to have such overwhelming support from the audience lately. It's honestly just an absolute pleasure to do this.
So it is with great pride I invite you to the show! Hopefully we come near you, let's do this! Devin =)"
DTP are pleased to reveal a trailer for the Z² album, which will be released on October 27 in both North America and Europe. It can be can be viewed here:
