Devin Townsend Announces “Empath Europe – Volume 1” Tour Dates

Canadian heavy music artist, Devin Townsend, recently announced the release of his forthcoming new album, Empath, for March 29th, and today he reveals the dates for the Empath Europe – Volume 1 tour, starting in November.

Devin comments: “After a year of intensive recording, mixing, and reflection, I have decided where I want to take the next level of my career as a live performer. I have had success and great memories from both the Devin Townsend Project as well as Strapping Young Lad, but now I am fortunate enough to be able to follow the muse where it currently leads. I am proud to announce that for the first ‘band’ tour of the Empath cycle, I am going to stretch my wings in ways I have not had the opportunity to do before and tour with a ‘backing band’ that can shift and morph as the music dictates instead of adhering to a click track. ‘Empath Europe Volume 1’ will be the first example of this, and the first tour will be in Europe (other territories to follow).

“I have spent considerable effort think about the things I wanted to do for these shows, and one thing I came out of DTP with was the awareness that I wanted to incorporate a more improvisational element to what I do. With the best players I can find, my plan is to interpret my back catalogue, as well as the Empath material, in ways that may change nightly. less computers, and less of a rigid structure. I want to use Volume 1 as a way to bring my music to people in a potentially new way. People playing music…

“I hope you will consider joining me at these concerts. As a performer, it’s important to be able to be willing to react, and my hope is that each of these shows will be a unique experience.

“Thank you for allowing me to do what I do. See you there?”

The tour dates are as follows:

December 2 – Simm City, Vienna, Austria
December 3 – X Tra, Zurich, Switzerland
December 6 – Academy, Dublin, Ireland
December 7 – Limelight, Belfast, UK
December 9 – SWG3 Galvanisers, Glasgow, UK
December 10 – Albert Hall, Manchester, UK
December 12 – Roundhouse, London, UK
December 13 – Rock City, Nottingham, UK

Monument Of Misanthropy Looking For New Guitarist(s) & Bassist

European brutal death metal stronghold Monument Of Misanthropy announce they are looking for new guitarists and a new bass player. European musicians with their own material are being preferred, but it is NOT mandatory. Get in touch with the band via this email: monumentofmisanthropy@yahoo.de or their official bandpage on FB: Monument Of Misanthropy Official Band Site

Explains the inventor of the Monument Of Misanthropy brand-imprint, band founder and frontman George “Misanthrope” Wilfinger:

“Neither will I be using any empty bullshit phrases like “due to artistic differences”, “because of unsurmountable personal differences”, nor will I be washing Monument Of Misanthropy’s dirty laundry in public. Fact is that after the last very successful years, three awesome European tours and two acclaimed releases, for me it feels like I should carry on with a new team of guitarists and bass player. Artists who still have the fire inside to go beyond their limits and with an iron will to produce a brutal new death metal album for Monument Of Misanthropy with me and one of the best drummers out there in the brutal death metal world. People willing to play festivals, to go on tours, even if the fee won’t buy them a Porsche. Musicians who live for the cause. Just sincere, motivated musicians willing to go the extra mile, that’s all I’m asking for. Musicians from Europe and with their own material are preferred, but it’s NO must.”

Monument Of Misanthropy have been recording and touring with drum-gods Romain Goulon (ex-Necrophagist, ex-Benighted), Simon Schilling (ex-Belphegor) and David Diepold (ex-Benighted, Cognizance).

We had our good pal Zach Strouse playing live saxophone with us that night, so it seemed like a great chance to catch some footage. As always, working with David Brodsky and his team was a blast. We hope you enjoy.

We will also be embarking on our second European tour late this November with our friends in Revocation, Archspire, and Soreption. We will be playing a nice selection of new tunes as well as some old favorites. Come out and get in the pit!”
