Townsend released “Deconstruction” and “Ghost” — the third and fourth in a series of albums to be made available under DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT moniker — on June 21 (one day earlier internationally) via InsideOut Music.
“Deconstruction” and “Ghost” complete Devin‘s tetralogy album concept — a great journey through Townsend‘s different states of musical moods — which he started in 2009 with the albums “Addicted” (2009) and “Ki” (2009).
Townsend has announced the first two special shows in U.K. for November 2011 for a unique DVD recording.
On his recent mostly sold-out European tour, Devin already performed some of the new material and if you have followed Devin through his career, you will know that he is always up for pushing the limits to higher levels. After releasing “Deconstruction” and “Ghost”, Devin Townsend will return to London U.K. in November 2011 to play a set of very special shows dedicated to his four-album concept and which will be captured live on DVD.
