“There’s certainly a value in having a team of people- friends and coworkers – help one be objective about their work. It especially seems to help commercially, but it also becomes a trajectory that is hard to step away from, a treadmill of sorts.

I like the hang time so much that I find myself sliding into that role repeatedly until I realize there’s an undercurrent of dissatisfaction with my own identity within that role. Maybe not with the music, but with the process. The idea of the process is to articulate your own trip accurately as it evolves and learn from your missteps. (The above included)

I talk a lot of shit, and it’s doubtful that will ever change… but we know our paths subconsciously, so it’s about being creatively assertive enough to allow it to flourish. , it’s about following through and breaking through walls. And cats.”

Original Story:

When Devin Townsend put The Devin Townsend Project on hiatus earlier this year, it felt like a necessity to tackle his backlog of projects he has in the works. Given his latest update, which you can read below, it might well be a creative rebirth as he reveals he has also apparently shed ties with his label and management as well.

Townsend is expected to begin recording this week with more details to come.
