Devin Townsend Announces European/UK/India Solo Acoustic Tour

Devin Townsend has announced an acoustic tour that will hit Europe and India. The trek will feature music as well as Q&A sessions.

Townsend commented:

“Hello everyone, Devin here. I have been busy making my newest recording, EMPATH over the past year. It has been a complicated and enlightening experience in that I have gone back to my roots in terms of what my motivations are for making music, in hopes that I am able to move forward as a musician being as true as I possibly can to my motivations.

The result is an album that I am exceptionally proud of, one that is uncompromised and diverse in ways that accurately represent where I’m at now at the age of 46. The past decade of relentless touring with DTP had been something that caught up with me in a big way, and as a result I felt I needed to step back from that world and analyse myself and make this music before stepping onto a stage again.

The time has come however for me to take the next step in my career, and when asked about how I would like to do so, I decided the first thing I would do was a very intimate run of shows that allows me to play my music stripped back to just me and a guitar. The shows are at nice venues, and includes a spoken word element with questions from the audience as well as aspects of my entire career represented in this one show.

Before I tour with a band again, I wanted to have the opportunity to play for you, and meet up with the people who not only have made my work possible, but inspire me to continue. In a world of computers and social media, to be stripped of all the bells and whistles is a very important step for my reintroduction to the live concert world. I truly hope you’ll join me and I look forward to being the most honest I can be with you at these special shows.

Thank you to Andy Farrow and Northern Music, Thomas Waber and Inside Out records, as well as all who have supported me during this period. I have not been as proud of an album as I am of Empath in many years, and I really needed to get this out of my system.

See you at the shows.

Devin Townsend“

Sonata Arctica Recording New Album, Announce “Acoustic Adventures” European Tour

Sonata Arctica have confirmed that they have been in the studio recording a new album, which is expected to be released in 2019. With this news, the band have also announced a European acoustic tour with Witherfall.

Keyboardist Henrik “Henkka” Klingenberg commented:

“We’ve been locked up in the studio since the end of the summer working on our next studio album and decided we needed to take a break and go out and play some shows.

In the summer of 2016, we did an acoustic summer tour in Finland which was a lot of fun for both us and our fans; in fact, it was so great that we wanted to do it again and this time we’re not settling for just Finland — but taking this show all around Europe for the first time ever.

Now is a unique chance to hear our music in a completely different setting and we’re sure these evenings will be something really special. Our set will also include some stuff we’ve never played live before, and who knows — maybe even a new song from the upcoming album. See you at the shows!”
