Devin Townsend Plans July Release Date For Live Orchestral Performance Of “Ocean Machine”

Devin Townsend Project‘s special September 22nd, 2017 live performance of their album “Ocean Machine: Biomech” will hit stores on July 06th. The 20th anniversary performance of that release
took place at the Ancient Roman Theatre in Plovdiv, Bulgaria and saw him joined by the Orchestra of Plovdiv State Opera. In addition to playing the effort, a number of fan-requested tracks from Townsend‘s catalog were also performed.

The set is titled “Ocean Machine – Live At The Ancient Roman Theatre Plovdiv” and will be released on a variety of formats, including a limited deluxe 3CD/2DVD/Blu-Ray artbook (with liner notes from Devin and a special documentary dubbed ‘Reflecting The Chaos‘ on the second DVD & Blu-Ray), a special edition 3CD/DVD digipak, a standalone Blu-ray and as a digital audio download.

Comments Townsend of said show:

“Plovdiv and this live package represents a lot to me, it signifies the end of one era, and the celebration of another. Amidst a gruelling touring year, this show came together with much blood, sweat, and tears, and the result is the culmination of many aspects of my work on one stage. ‘Ocean Machine‘ was released 20 years ago, and though Marty (drums) is no longer with us, I was able to finally perform the album in its entirety with the original bassist John ‘Squid’ Harder on this night. On a cold evening in an old city in the ancient theatre, many lifelong milestones came to a conclusion on this night and I’m exceptionally proud of it.

I am currently writing, writing, and writing some more for the next stage of my life and work, and the team of individuals who contributed to this project, from the musicians in the band and orchestra, to the crews locally and with this, management, artists, filmographers and most importantly, the audience… made this night a powerful and strangely bittersweet moment I am proud to have documented with this work.

This is a very special live recording of a very special night, and I hope you enjoy it as a monument to the things that inspired it all in the first place.

Love and light,

Devin Townsend“

New Video Clip “Outback Incest Clan” Available From Broken Hope

Chicago’s Broken Hope recently released the seventh studio album “Mutilated and Assimilated” via Century Media Records. The album pays tribute to John Carpenter’s classic film “The Thing” and John W. Campbell Jr’s short story “Who Goes There.”

In further celebration of “Mutilated and Assimilated” release, the band has prepared a new music video for the pummeling single, “Outback Incest Clan”, which can be seen below.

Guitarist Jeremy Wagner commented: “What’s in a name? Our song titles usually say a lot, and OUTBACK INCEST CLAN should tell you what’s in store. I got the idea for the subject matter straight from our sick vocalist, Damian Leski, who has can given me a few lyrical ideas. This song is based on TRUE EVENTS! I’ll give you the Wikipedia lowdown: It’s about the ‘Colt family incest case,’ dubbed by media as the ‘Colt incest clan,’ an Australian family discovered in 2012 to have been engaging in four generations of incest beginning with ‘Tim and June Colt,’ a brother and sister who emigrated from New Zealand in the 1970s. The family grew to nearly 40 members ranging from grandparents to mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, aunts, uncles, nephews, brothers and sisters all engaging in various forms of incest. Many of the children suffered from deformities and medical problems.

“The video was another collaboration between director Tommy Jones and Broken Hope and we love the way this one played out with Tommy’s cool camera angles and the creepiness he injected into it. Enjoy!”
