Devin Townsend Performs Strapping Young Lad Material Live Again, Says “It Was A Mistake”


Recent live performances from the Devin Townsend Project in Mexico and Santiago, Chile have seen Townsend go back on his word by once again performing Strapping Young Lad‘s “Love?” live.

Townsend himself has since taken to his Twitter to say that it won’t happen again:

“So just wanted to say: yeah, I played Love in South America and it was a mistake. I didn’t think it through as I had said I wouldn’t again. I figured it had not been played there before so I’d do it as a ‘cover tune’. But it just confuses people. It won’t be played again. Thanks for the support – signed: ‘work in frikkin progress’ again, my mistake fully.”

Fan-filmed footage of those performances can be seen below. Meanwhile, the Blu-ray/DVD release of Townsend‘s sold out “The Retinal Circus” live show is tentatively due out in July.
