Devin Townsend Shares Collection Of New Song Ideas


Devin Townsend hare shared a video compiling various song ideas he has been working on since releasing his album “Empath” this past March. He commented of the collection:

“Heres a bunch of shrapnel Im working on. No idea what any of it will be for yet, some are relatively complete demos, some are just a riff or melody…

I always write, this stuff has been on my mind over the past few months, but I’m not really ‘writing’ yet, per se. Thought you might enjoy hearing a bunch of brain vomit. some of it is ok I think.

I won’t really be ‘writing’ for some time yet, but this gives you an idea of how my process goes… I just jot down things as they come without judging them too much at this stage.

Lots more than this, but these are whas on my mind most atm I guess.”

Townsend has also been busying himself with getting ready for his next spate of touring, which in addition to a final acoustic run down under also includes the below European/UK tour with Haken which is expected to see him return to a full band live lineup.

He’s also recently completed a 5.1 surround sound mix of “Empath” and has been mixing a live acoustic performance captured in Leeds, UK with both set to be included on a future ‘ultimate edition’ release of “Empath“. A documentary, song commentary, a ‘mixing lecture’ and more will be included on that.
