Devin Townsend Australian Clinic Tour Dates Announced

The ever eccentric and always awesome, Devin Townsend, will be heading to Australia in October to host a series of guitar clinics in association with Thump Music.

Devin will head to Oz to offer guitar fans and players from across the country the opportunity to learn from an artist who has built a successful career on musical diversity.

The clinics will offer guitar enthusiasts the opportunity to learn the techniques and styles Devin has developed throughout his varied career. Alongside this, there will be plenty of opportunity for fans to ask any questions they have, as each clinic will end with a Q&A session.

In related news Devin will release a new double album, entitled "Z2", in the week of October 27th this year. The two discs will be individually titled ‘Sky Blue’ (DTP) and ‘Dark Matters’ (Ziltoid).

Reflecting on the upcoming release Devin states:

“I really enjoy my job and I really want to continue being able to be creative. This project offers me an opportunity to present myself in ways that I haven’t before: as a writer, as an orchestrator, as somebody who’s able to provide soundtrack stuff, as a puppeteer, as a multimedia artist, dubious comedy, all these things. I’m hoping that ‘Z2′ really provides an outlet for people to see that I’m capable of a lot of things, but even more so, I hope it will inspire other artists to reach for things that maybe seem a bit out of reach.”
