DEVIN TOWNSEND Interviewed By 'Metalheadz' (Video)

Peter Bailey of the "Metalheadz" radio show conducted an interview with Canadian musician/producer Devin Townsend (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, STEVE VAI, LAMB OF GOD, DARKEST HOUR, GWAR) at this year's edition of the Bloodstock Open Air festival, which was held August 13-15, 2010 at Catton Hall in Derbyshire, United Kingdom. You can now watch the chat below.

Townsend is currently working on "Deconstruction" and "Ghost" — the third and fourth in a series of albums to be made available under THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT moniker.

Even though "Ghost" is fourth album to be made available under THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT moniker, Devin is recording it third, because "Deconstruction" (the as-yet-unreleased third THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT album) is "a nightmare technically and I wanted to make something lovely before diving into that," Devin previously said.

Songtitles set to appear on "Ghost" include:

* Feather
* Radial Highway
* Fly
* Monsoon
* Infinite Ocean
* Moonshine
* Texada
* Blackberry

Townsend performed his "Ziltoid The Omniscient" concept album in its entirety on July 2 at Tuska as a special one-off world-exclusive show. His DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT also played a set the following day at the festival, which featured additional appearances by TESTAMENT and OBITUARY, among many others.

"Addicted", the second in a series of albums from Townsend to be made available under the DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT moniker, came out in November 2009 and has become the fastest-selling solo record in Devin's career.
