Devin Townsend will release his third live album Devolution #3 – Empath Live In America on August 4. The tour was cut short in 2020 thanks to the pandemic, but hey – we got a live album out of it at least. Check out "Evermore" below and pre-order Empath Live In America here.

"Hello everyone :) continuing in the Devolution series of albums (which has been an avenue for us to release cool little curiosities on the side of regular releases) we bring you Devolution #3 – Empath Live In America.

"This was a very unique tour for me, and one that was regrettably cut short by the pandemic. It was a stripped back version of the 'Order of Magnitude' band (without choir and a few other members…), but as i try to do with each tour, the goal was to make this a unique and special night. Therefore, this tour marked a free form' version of the material. There were no backing tracks, click tracks, or even a setlist, so every night was unique and different. The audience yelled out requests and we just rolled with it. The material was therefore interpreted in unique ways and the experience was a very special ‘fly by the seat of our pants' musical night.

"It's a raw and off kilter performance and I'm thrilled to have documented it. Until the next 'real' release, I hope you enjoy this rarity from a special, albeit ill-fated tour."

Devin Townsend will hit the road with Dream Theater and Animals As Leaders starting this month. Get your tickets here.
