THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT: 'Ghost' Artwork Unveiled

Canadian musician/producer Devin Townsend (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, STEVE VAI, LAMB OF GOD, DARKEST HOUR, GWAR) has revealed the final cover artwork "Ghost" — the fourth in a series of albums to be made available under THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT moniker. Check it out below. Also available is the slipcase artwork for the CD.

Devin previously stated about the "Ghost" art: "The macro shot was influenced by some shots someone on Twitter showed me. But a great photographer named Brian Kibbons did the whole album, and [Travis] Smith [NEVERMORE, OPETH, AMORPHIS, KING DIAMOND] did the layout."

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

According to Devin, "'Ghost' is the mellowest (by far) and prettiest record I've done so far" with a "very wonderful vibe." It will be released with "the shitstorm that is 'Deconstruction' simultaneously" — via InsideOut Music.

Devin Townsend recently confirmed via Twitter that he will tour the U.S. with CHILDREN OF BODOM in June.

Townsend has announced the first two special shows in U.K. for November 2011 for a unique DVD recording.

In June 2011 the world will be struck by two new releases from Townsend. The albums entitled "Deconstruction" and "Ghost" will complete his tetralogy album concept — a great journey through Devin's different states of musical moods — which he started in 2009 with the albums "Addicted" (2009) and "Ki" (2009).

On his currently ongoing and mostly sold-out European tour, Devin is already performing some of the new material and if you have followed Devin through his career, you will know that he is always up for pushing the limits to higher levels. After finishing the tour at the end of March, and after releasing "Deconstruction" and "Ghost" in June, Devin Townsend will return to London U.K. in November 2011 to play a set of very special shows dedicated to his four-album concept and which will be captured live on DVD!
