On October 24, Aniruddh “Andrew” Bansal of Metal Assault conducted an interview with Canadian musician/producer Devin Townsend at the Troubadour in Hollywood, California. You can now listen to the chat using the Mixcloudplayer below.
DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT will release “Contain Us”, a special tribute box set for its epic quadrology (“Ki”, “Addicted”, “Deconstruction” and “Ghost”) on November 29 in North America. “Contain Us” was designed and created by Man Alive‘s Tom Bejgrowicz (who also conceived the classic and must-have MISFITS “Coffin” box-set) and is the ultimate collection for every diehard Devin fan. Pre-orders are now exclusively available at CM Distro. The standard box-set is priced at $80.00 while the hand-numbered box with the 10″ and a lithograph drawn and autographed by Devin is $100.
