After a bit of uncertainty regarding Z2 having been rumored to be shelved, metal mastermind Devin Townsend tweeted that he has finished writing the first track for the follow up to his 2007 concept record Ziltoid The Omniscient. YEEESSSS!
Obviously it’s way too early to make much of this, but the news is still very exciting. Devin says that Z2 is about a year and a half away, and judging by some interviews Devin has given in the past, it sounds like it will probably be a huge rock opera. On top of that, ZTV is planned to make a return. I can’t wait to see what Devin could possibly come up with in the Ziltoid universe! It’s sure to be nuts.
As always, we’ll be sure to fill you in when Devin drops some knowledge and wisdom. In the meantime, Devin will also be very busy planning for his Retinal Circus show in London in October this year, which promises to be the most definitive Devin show to date – and that’s on top of his recent run of entire album shows.
