THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT's 'Deconstruction', 'Ghost' Albums Get Release Date - Mar. 27, 2011

Canadian musician/producer Devin Townsend (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD,STEVE VAILAMB OF GODDARKEST HOURGWAR) will release"Deconstruction" and "Ghost" — the third and fourth in a series of albums to be made available under THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECTmoniker — in Europe on June 20 via InsideOut Music.

"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).

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," Devinpreviously said.

According to Devin, "'Ghost' is the mellowest (by far) and prettiest record I've done so far" with a "very wonderful vibe."

Townsend tapped Jens Bogren (OPETHKATATONIAPARADISE LOST,BLOODBATH) to mix "Deconstruction". The sessions took place late last month at Fascination Street studio in Örebro, 
Sweden. The CD will feature a guest appearance by former EMPEROR frontman Ihsahn (real name: Vegard Sverre Tveitan) as well as two drummers — Ryan Van Poederooyen (TERROR SYNDROMETHE DEVIN TOWNSEND BAND) for the "crushing stuff," and Dirk Verbeuren (SOILWORKSCARVE,ABORTED) for the "inhuman stuff."

Devin previously described "Deconstruction" as "brutal in a lot of parts, but pretty glorious in others. It rides the fence of negativity but ultimately ends supremely positive."

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.

On his currently ongoing and mostly sold-out European tour, Devin is already performing some of the new material and if you have followedDevin 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 Townsendwill 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!

I wait so much to listen to Deconstruction.The blend of extreme metal with orchestral parts(he used Prague philarmonic orchestra)is amazing!
Inexistence is the true normality.
