Devin Townsend releases release date

Well, I got some good news and bad news.

The bad news involved being at a grocery store earlier today. I went into the “10 items or less” lane and this elderly lady was in front of me. For some strange reason, I decided to count the groceries in her cart and she had 11!  I politely asked her to leave the line or take one item out because clearly she was breaking rules. She refused to, explaining to me having an extra item wasn’t a big deal! This frustrated me!  I know it sounds like I’m pulling a Larry David, but this old bag needed to go into any other line besides the “10 items or less” one!  Rules are NOT meant to be broken!

The good news, however,  is Devin Towsend has spoken over Twitter and has finally set a release date for his upcoming new albums ‘Ghost‘ and ‘Deconstruction‘.

Looks like the release date for Deconstruction and Ghost is June 20. Info on special presale stuff soon. Thanks for the support!!!

Hurray for Devin Townsend! F U to the granny!


The glass is half full

According to The PRP, Children of Bodom and winner of best hair style of 2010, Devin Townsend are planning a June U.S. tour together. More details on the tour, which was recently confirmed by Townsend, are expected in the next couple of months.

Why do I say the glass is only half full? Well, because I happen to think Children of Bodom are complete meh, but Devin Townsend is awesome though. That, and because I just drank half my beer.


The Dillinger Escape Band

The Dillinger Escape Plan

The Dillinger Escape Plan should join Cirque du Soleil. Seriously, they have a proper show: the picture above is just one example of the gravity defying acts their band members are known to show (google them to see more). They spend more time in the air than on the ground during their shows, and when they’re on the ground they spend it spitting fireballs. And they also have some music playing in the background.

Which brings me to some sad news. It seems the band members of The Dillinger Escape Plan are working hard to escape the band for a little while. Aaaw. In the last few days yours truly has counted three side projects by various members of the band. Make the jump to find out more.
