DEVIN TOWNSEND: 'Contain Us' Box Set Details Revealed

Canadian musician/producer Devin Townsend will release a monumental box set called "Contain Us". The set, which was designed and created by Man Alive's Tom Bejgrowicz (who also conceived the classic and must-have MISFITS "Coffin" box set), is the ultimate collection for every diehard Devin fan. Some highlights of the box are outlined below.

* A 12" x 12", 64-page, perfect bound book featuring a charcoal linen hardcover with ink-less debossing of the DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT logo on the front and applicable titling on the spine.
* DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT albums will be housed within the front cover's pastedown while the four unreleased discs will be in the back's.
* 500 individually-numbered, limited edition copies that include two exclusive items: A. An autographed lithographic print featuring original artwork by Devin drawn exclusively for this edition and B. a 10-inch piece of vinyl featuring two exclusive tracks.

Director David Brodsky of MyGoodEye who has previously collaborated with AS I LAY DYING, SUICIDE SILENCE, KATAKLYSM, ARSIS, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER and STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, among others helmed the video for the song "Juular" from the DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT. Townsend stated about the clip, "[Brodsky] is a true artist and really went the extra mile!"

Former EMPEROR frontman Ihsahn (real name: Vegard Sverre Tveitan) joined DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT on stage on August 6 at the Vagos Open Air festival in Lagoa de Calvo (GDC), Portugal to perform the song "Juular".

The studio version of "Juular", featuring Ihsahn on guest vocals, can be found on "Deconstruction", the third in a series of albums to be made available under DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT moniker, which came out on June 21 (one day earlier internationally) via InsideOut Music.

Ihsahn previously stated about his collaboration with Townsend, "I have been a longtime fan of Devin and his work, and when he asked me to do some vocals for his 'Deconstruction' album, I said yes right away.

"Devin is one of those few uncompromising artists who goes anywhere with their music, wherever that takes them. Nothing but respect!"

"Deconstruction" and "Ghost" complete Devin's tetralogy album concept a great journey through Townsend's different states of musical moods which he started in 2009 with the albums "Addicted" (2009) and "Ki" (2009).
