New DTP + Ziltoid 2

New "poppy" DTP album 'Epicloud' is finished. Kind of a stop-gap release before Devin finishes Ziltoid 2.

Tracklist:

'Taurus'
'Animals'
'Liberation'
'Back Where We Belong'
'Save Our Now'
'Kingdom'
'Divine'
'Grace'
'More!'
'Heatwave'
'Hold On'
'Angels'

Dev: "Epicloud is the 'in-between' DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT and Ziltoid 2. While writing Z2, I purged 20 epic, poppy, porgy, 'Dev Leppard' type things... I love it. Been holding in my love of melody in lieu of being metal, but decided to let 'er rip before the next Ziltoid. So liberating. Oh yeah, it's still under the DTP moniker. The logo is way too cool to ditch. Yeah, we re-did 'Kingdom' because it's a live set staple, and so much better now than the Physicist recording."

"Not to let the cat out of the bag too early, but fuck it: Working on a scheme to make Ziltoid 2 a feature length (ghetto style) movie!"

The sad part, or incredible part depending on how you look at it. That's not even a Third of what he's working on this year. He has 3 other projects in the works, the DTP London DVD Boxset, and the Carnival Retrospective show in October.

All that, plus touring. I don't know how he does it. He is the Frank Zappa of Metal for sure (Quality wise will be up for debate I'm sure after this post is posted.)

Meh, he doesn't tour THAT much compared to some.

People like Wino, Warren Haynes, and a few others do more in a year.

I saw him 3 times in 5 months last year. All within an hour and a half of me. That sounds like a lot to me

Oh yeah, when he does tour he just goes to the same places a lot. I mean, I could have seen him 5 times last year in London alone if I'd wanted to. Doesn't mean his touring was extensive, just that he came to London a lot

Granted that is true, but its still a lot of touring and recording, and mixing/mastering live and studio projects, etc.

Not saying he is the busiest guy out there, but he rarely takes a break from music since he got back into it in 2007.

That's kind of annoying that he's releasing Epicloud under the DTP name. The Devin Townsend Project was always referred to as a 4 part series and they made the Contain Us boxset to wrap the whole thing up. And something tells me Epicloud wont even fit with the concept of the DTP. I'm sure it will still be a great record.

Devin Townsend Project, Devin Townsend Band, Ocean Machine, it's all basically just Devin Townsend. I don't know why he just doesn't release it all as "Devin Townsend".

I'm looking forward to this one, I find his "poppy" music the best stuff he puts out.

I have no problem with it being released under the DTP name. Although I think it would be better to go back under the Devin Townsend Band name.

Although Adamclark makes the best argument. It's all Devin, so does it really matter?

It's not that big of a deal but it's annoying because the Devin Townsend Project was a series. It's kind of like if JK Rowling released another Harry Potter book after releasing a box set called "Harry Potter: The Complete Collection".
