Hear Devin Townsend’s ‘Commercial’ Album Epicloud
Devin Townsend is streaming latest album Epicloud in full ahead of its September 18 release. Hear it below or on this page.
The former Strapping Young Lad mainman describes his 15th solo work as being based on “simpler, commercial structures.” Naturally that doesn’t make it throwaway pop.
Townsend tells Exclaim: “I wanted something catchy as the flu, but with a sentiment that is romantic, positive and beautiful. Spiritual without religion and set to heavy music.
“Because some structures are ‘common’ – but new to me – this record is my take on what a big, epic, commercial-sounding record that sings about nice stuff would sound like in Dev-land.”
Devin Townsend Project is currently touring the US with Paradise Lost and Katatonia.
