DEVIN TOWNSEND Performed A STRAPPING YOUNG LAD Song Live; Immediately Regretted It
Devin Townsend has made it very clear previously that he has no interest in resurrecting Strapping Young Lad, like that time when he interviewed himself.
He decided to have a little fun in South America recently and "cover" an SYL tune, ""Love?," and of course there is video of it:
Naturally, this has led to online questioning of Devy asking if this means we can expect more SYL material in his sets, which led to Devy regretting his decision. He tweeted:
“So just wanted to say: yeah, I played Love in South America and it was a mistake. I didn’t think it through as I had said I wouldn’t again. I figured it had not been played there before so I’d do it as a ‘cover tune’. But it just confuses people. It won’t be played again. Thanks for the support – signed: ‘work in frikkin progress’ again, my mistake fully.”
Way to go everybody! Now we'll never ever hear SYL tunes live, even in cover form.
