“MK Ondergrond” (meaning “Underground” in Afrikaans) conducted an interview with Canadian musician/producer Devin Townsend and Devin‘s character Ziltoid The Omniscient for the show’s Season 2 premiere. You can watch the chat below (Note: The intro is in Afrikaans, but the interview was conducted in English).
“MK Ondergrond” (Facebook page) is South Africa’s first dedicated underground music variety show, hosted by a macabre crew of animated characters, featuring band interviews, video reviews, gig guides and the best in local and international underground music videos.
Devin Townsend played four shows in London in November 2011 dedicated to his tetralogy album concept — a great journey through Devin‘s different states of musical moods — which he started in 2009 with the albums “Addicted” (2009) and “Ki” (2009) and finished with last year’s “Deconstruction” and “Ghost”. The concerts were professionally recorded and filmed for a unique box-set release, which he has decided to call “By A Thread – Live in London 2011”.
Released on June 18 in Europe and June 19 in North America through HevyDevy Records/InsideOut Music, “By A Thread – Live in London 2011” contains all four shows on four DVDs, plus a five-CD set (the four albums and one disc with all of the encores).
