Yes, all those exclamation points were necessary. I’d use more, but being too annoying about it takes away from how awesome this is news is.
The Almighty Devin Townsend will be traveling across North America on a headlining tour this August. Only a select few dates have been announced so far, but East Coast dates are to be announced, along with supporting acts.
Here’s what Devin had to say about the win he’s about to release across the face of America:
“Sitting here at the airport after months of preparation for the European festivals, getting this material ready to be heard the way it’s meant to be heard has been a pretty mean task. Last night’s epic rehearsal was one of those moments when you realize the work put into making it right results in an awesome sound. I have been given the opportunity now to bring this music to North America in my first ever solo headlining tour. It’s not a huge tour, but I really would appreciate seeing some of the familiar faces and hopefully some new ones as well. It’s cheesy to announce your touring plans as ‘the biggest or best’ of anything, but I love this music, we’ve worked really hard to get it right. If you’re one of the folks that dig it, then this should be a great, heavy and fun time that sounds the way it should.”
