Devin Townsend shares new single “Evermore” and animated video: Stream

The release of Devin Townsend’s new album EMPATH is just weeks away, promising an amalgamation of heavy styles and musical exploration from the Canadian artist. Townsend has dropped a new single from the album, “Evermore”, along with an accompanying music video featuring a spacefaring cat that spends too much time on its phone and crash lands on a spooky planet Degobah-style (watch below).

The song is indicative of the chameleon-like metal of EMPATH, with moments of massive orchestral prog and full choir arrangements opening up to spacious passages where Townsend’s clean vocals and guitar-work take precedence. The album traverses many of the songwriter’s various styles, essentially creating a genre unto himself for this record, which he credits to a free-form approach rather than pandering to any commercial expectation.

“Those interested in the more artistic and free form side of what I do really seem to like and understand it, and those looking for the more commercial or rocking side of what I do are maybe not so convinced,” Townsend said of the reception toward the new material. “The album is meant to be of some help in a weird way.”

Those who are curious of Townsend’s creative process can get an inside look, as he will be posting a series of “documentary episodes recorded as phone conversations” during the making of the album. The first episode can be seen here.

EMPATH is out March 29th via InsideOut Records with CD and vinyl pre-orders now available. You can also catch Devin Townsend on tour with Avatar this spring. See the dates here, and pick up tickets here.

  • Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.
