The DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT have confirmed two shows in Scotland and two in Ireland. The mini-tour is built around their May 3rd co-headlining show with MESHUGGAH in London, England at the 02 Brixton Academy. The schedule can be viewed below.
Townsend commented on the not-to-be-missed show with Meshuggah: "Well this is an intense turn of events... it's no secret how much love and respect I have for Meshuggah. They are an anomaly in life, let alone in music, as being a perfectly developed entity that only evolves as a result of there being nothing but honesty in their vision. If you have not experienced Meshuggah live, I truly believe you have not witnessed the elite that this genre has to offer, and to be playing alongside of them again is an honour that I don't take lightly.
PERIPHERY are a band and a musical entity as well in which I cannot say enough good things about. The potential that band of humans demonstrates together is truly unlimited, and they have a perspective on music that very few folks do, unlimited scope and astounding musicianship. Their new record is beautiful and the people in the band are a constant source of inspiration to me.
To be allowed to participate in this bill is humbling beyond all explanation, and the Brixton Academy is a historic venue that has been on my 'bucket-list' to play. By being the best version of myself that I can be we hope to do this show the justice it deserves. An honour and a privilege. We hope to see you there, and the three bands will do you proud. Peace."
