DEVIN TOWNSEND Recruits HAKEN, CASUALTIES OF COOL & DETHKLOK Members For Coming Tour

Posted by on September 26, 2019 at 12:40 pm

Devin Townsend will hit the road in November for the first of his many varied tours coming up, one of which he promises will get very heavy. Now he's unveiled his live lineup for the coming European shows, which include vocalist and guitarist Ché Aimee Dorval (Casualties Of Cool), guitarists Mike Keneally (Dethklok) and Markus Reuter (Stick Men), bassist Nathan Navarro, keyboardist Diego Tejeida (Haken), and drummer Morgan Ågren (Kaipa).

Here's what Townsend had to say about the lineup and this particular tour.

“There have been only a few times throughout my career that I can safely say I’ve taken a chance as big as I’m about to take with these new touring plans. But I believe that to not take a chance on something as important to me as this can only lead to creative stagnation.

It is with profound gratitude that I can announce this next tour. To be joined by musicians of this caliber, as well as crew and sound design of such a level, is something I am truly humbled by. As one who has been working professionally my whole career to be able to be allowed to pull something like this off, I really can’t say ‘thank you’ enough to everyone involved.

This is a quantum leap for me, and it’s a situation that I have been very proactive in choosing a group of individuals and setlist for.

I am thrilled and honoured to be joined on these next tours by drummer Morgan Ågren, guitarist Mike Keneally, Ambient guitarist Markus Reuter, keyboardist Diego Tejeida – d’Tej, singer and guitarist Ché Aimee Dorval, bassist Nathan Navarro, as well as a three person choir comprised of Samantha and Anne Preis, and Arabella Packford.

This will be without a net. No backing tracks, no clicks, a lot of room for improvisation, and every possible avenue through musicians and production of high caliber for new and interesting things to be possible each night.

Though this is the first of my upcoming plans for touring, and I don’t want to be limited in the future, my gut feeling is that this will be a truly unique and fascinatingly colourful organization that will yield wonderful things. I truly hope it can be received well enough to be brought to a lot of different territories.

In a wonderful turn of events, the tour is selling out quickly, so please don’t delay and miss the opportunity to see this unique band.

Thank you again for allowing me to do these sorts of things. Truly.

Devin Townsend“
