Devin Townsend Begins Tracking “Exceptionally Heavy” New Album “Powernerd”


Devin Townsend has been cooking up a new album/project titled “Powernerd“, with sessions having recently been taking place at Armoury Studios in Vancouver, BC. Darby Todd, who has been touring with Townsend, was behind the drum kit for these latest sessions.

In a video update shared yesterday, March 24th, Townsend stated of the project:

Powernerd” was written with a very clear intent for me. I feel that I typically have been — and it’s not always been a bad thing — but I tend to overthink things a lot. And I get really complicated with things that sometimes—at least right now I felt like that wasn’t what I wanted to do, so I gave myself parameters for “Powernerd“.

I gave myself twelve days to write it, and 1 day to rehearse it. Darby Todd came in from the UK and then two and a half days to track drums, bass and guitar. And if it was to not work it would have been a colossal failure. But I’m happy to say it’s exceptionally heavy, and exceptionally cool.”
