Expanded Version Of The Devin Townsend Project’s “Epicloud” Coming

Devin Townsend has some interesting plans in store for an expanded version of his new The Devin Townsend Project album, “Epicloud“. Here’s what he had to say on the matter via Twitter earlier today, June 09th:

“So when the ‘Ghost‘ album was finished, I had 12 songs that came out here and there, supposed to be Ghost 2, couldn’t convince label etc.. However, Epicloud has 12 extra songs as well, and they have agreed to let me do a digipak version that is essentially a ‘double album’ =] The second disk wont be mixed in the same way, a bit more ‘demo-ish’ in quality, but it completes this cycle without having stragglers after”
