DEVIN TOWNSEND BAND Drummer Says New Album Will Be 'Amazing'

DEVIN TOWNSEND BAND drummer Ryan Van Poederooyen has posted the following update on his official web site:

"Just when you thought all my guest appearances were done for my solo album. I've added one final guest to the list.

"Byron Stroud: Bassist for STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, FEAR FACTORY, and ZIMMER'S HOLE has joined the guest list to play on a track on my upcoming solo release.

"I've known Byron for a quite a while now. He's an awesome guy, who is easy to work with and his bass playing will fit perfectly on one of the many heavy song's I've written for my recording.

"I'm stoked about him playing on the album and I'm looking forward to working with him. Byron will be the final guest spot addition to the album.

"Due to all the different guests' schedules, the album will start recording in May/June 2005. This will allow for everyone to have their parts down and for the recording to go smoothly. I'm hoping to release the album for late summer to early fall 2005.

"I'm also very close to recording the drum tracks for NON-HUMAN LEVEL. I'll probably be setting studio time up with Christofer Malmström from DARKANE, for the next month or two at the latest, here in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Jay Van Poederooyen (my brother) will be recording the drum tracks. The studio in which we will be recording at will be decided on shortly. I have most of the album memorized and am looking forward to laying down some crazy drumming for this project! NHL is almost ready to destroy!

"To finish up, I will be learning all of Russell Bergquist's (ex-ANNIHILATOR bassist) solo album as soon as the NON-HUMAN LEVEL album is recorded. Russell's album will be the next recording I do after NHL and then on to my solo album.

"Let's not forget that the new DEVIN TOWNSEND BAND album is being worked on as well. There is no confirmed time for when this recording will begin but all I can say is that the material for this new album is AMAZING! It will be worth the wait, trust me.

"So there it is kids. Lots of RVP stuff on the go. 2005 will be a busy one and hopefully a ground-breaking one as well."
