Devin Townsend Debuts Orchestral Live Performance Of “Truth” From Upcoming New Blu-ray

Devin Townsend has debuted a live video of “Truth” being performed in Bulgaria with the aid of the Orchestra of Plovdiv State Opera. The footage comes from his upcoming live set, “Ocean Machine – Live At The Ancient Roman Theatre Plovdiv“ which will be released on July 06th. That release primarily captures a special 20th anniversary performance of “Ocean Machine: Biomech” that took place on September 22nd, 2017 at the Ancient Roman Theatre in Plovdiv, Bulgaria.

Comments Townsend:

“Hey there, Devin T here, taking a second to bring myself up for air from writing : )
After a long and arduous process, the concert myself and the DTP performed in Plovdiv Bulgaria is finished, and here is your first view of it, ‘Truth’.

I am very proud of this release and it represents a culmination of many years of material. The concert actually is in two parts, with Ocean Machine being the second. It was a fantastic night and an unforgettable experience with the die-hards travelling from all around the world to be there with us.

As I move into the next phase of my life and career, this live in Bulgaria DVD stands as a monument for me, and what we achieved with the DTP.

As always, words fail me when it comes to expressing what the support of the audience means, but I thank you and everyone involved for allowing this to happen.

I hope you enjoy : )

Devin“

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“
