A Night With Devin Townsend
The eccentric and musical mastermind that is Devin Townsend will be making his way to Australia this October to take part in a series of Guitar Clinics in association with Thump Music.
Devin Townsend, now 30 records into an astonishing career has just raised the stakes, in the form of a new double album, Z², to be released worldwide in the week of October 27th this year. The two discs will be individually titled ‘Sky Blue’ (DTP) and ‘Dark Matters’ (Ziltoid).
Reflecting on the upcoming release Devin states: “I really enjoy my job and I really want to continue being able to be creative. This project offers me an opportunity to present myself in ways that I haven’t before: as a writer, as an orchestrator, as somebody who’s able to provide soundtrack stuff, as a puppeteer, as a multimedia artist, dubious comedy, all these things. I’m hoping that ‘Z²’ really provides an outlet for people to see that I’m capable of a lot of things, but even more so, I hope it will inspire other artists to reach for things that maybe seem a bit out of reach.”
In light of wanting to inspire other artists and preceding the highly anticipated release of Z², Devin will head to Australia to offer guitar fanatics from across the country the opportunity to learn from an artist who has built a successful career on musical diversity.
There will be two bands of ticket pricing available for those guitarists looking to pick up some essential guitar knowledge straight from Devin himself; general admission and a limited number of VIP packages, which will include exclusives such as a meet and greet plus guaranteed priority seating.
The clinics will offer guitar enthusiasts the opportunity to learn the techniques and styles Devin has developed throughout his varied career. Alongside this, there will be plenty of opportunity for fans to ask any questions they have, as each clinic will include a Q&A section. There will also be the chance to buy Devin Townsend music and merchandise at each clinic (please bring cash as this will be cash sales only).
