Devin Townsend Project's Addicted debut's on Billboard


Devin Townsend (2009) Devin Townsend triumphantly returns with a greatly ambitious new endeavor under the DTP (Devin Townsend Project) moniker. The new, mind-blowing offering, Addicted, was met with worldwide critical praise and scored very impressive first week numbers debuting at #168 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and #2 on the Billboard Heatseakers chart.

Townsend states: "Hey, Devin here...thanks for helping us get our first Billboard debut of one of the solo albums. That's incredibly flattering. After 20 years to even have interest, let alone a first like this is totally humbling. We are rehearsing hard for the upcoming tours, and I am very excited to play for you all. Thanks again!"

Townsend, easily one of metal's most intriguing, ominous and immensely talented figures is taking this project to the masses as he will join genre visionaries Between The Buried and Me, Cynic and Scale The Summit for a massive North American trek which kicks off Jan 8th.
