Man, Epicloud isn't out yet and Devin Townsend is already thinking about his next project. In February, we told you about a project he is starting called Casualties Of Cool with vocalist Ché Aimee Dorval, who appeared on Ki. Townsend described the album as "Johnny Cash songs, late night music, completely isolated sounding and different than anything I’ve done."
At this point, I'm on board with anything Devy does, especially now that he's announced who the drummer for this project will be, tweeting:
In a freak turn of events, the mindbending, unbelievable Morgan Agren is playing drums on Casualties Of Cool.(no release date any time soon)

In case you are not familiar with Agren, he is most known for his guest spot on Meshuggah guitarist Fredrik Thordendal's solo project, Sol Niger Within, and he managed to upstage Thordenal. Yes, he's that good. Take a look:
Now, I'm really excited! Too bad there is no release date in sight. Devy's new album, Epicloud comes out September 18th. You can enter a video making contest here.
