Devin Townsend Begins Recording New Album “Lightwork”, European Tour Announced


Devin Townsend has begun recording his new album “Lightwork” with producer GGGarth Richardson (Rage Against The Machine, Chevelle) at The Farm Studios in Vancouver, BC. A tentative spring 2022 release date is being planned for that effort.

Townsend also has an ambitious multi-format release  dubbed ‘The Puzzle‘ up his sleeve. It will emerge through Townsend’s own HevyDevy Records in film and album form.

Prior to that, Townsend will continue his ‘Devolution Series‘ of releases later this month when “Devolution Series #2 – Galactic Quarantine” arrives on June 25th. It features the livestreamed show he performed on September 05th, 2020 with his ‘Empath Vol. 2‘ touring lineup.

Joining him as his backing band for that show were guitarist Wes Hauch (Alluvial, ex-The Faceless, etc.), bassist Liam Wilson (Azusa, ex-The Dillinger Escape Plan) and drummer Samus Paulicelli (Decrepit Birth).

When “Lightwork” does arrive, it will be accompanied by the below newly announced European tour, tickets for which will be on sale this Monday, June 14th at 11:00am CET.
