Origin Postpone North American Tour With Beneath The Massacre, Defeated Sanity, & Wake

Origin have postponed their North American tour with Beneath The Massacre, Defeated Sanity, and Wake due to the coronavirus pandemic. The trek will now take place in the fall.

Origin commented:

“Well, ladies and gentlemen we all knew it was coming. For the past week we have tried to hold on and bring Occupation Domination to as many of you as possible but it has become abundantly clear that for the safety of fans, crew and bands alike we have decided to formally end the tour and return home. As of now we are planning on POSTPONING Occupation Domination until the fall of 2020.

For all purchased tickets please contact your point of sale for details on refunds. Stay safe and healthy during this crazy time and we will see you all as soon as possible. If you wish to help the band out, as this has been a huge financial blow to Origin as well as for most touring musicians, you can support us by picking up merch at our indiemerch webpage and we will very soon be putting up exclusive items from this tour on our own bigcartel store. We will get through this together, take care of each other. From the last band standing, see you soon. Hail space

Beneath The Massacre Premiere “Rise Of The Fearmonger” Video

Beneath The Massacre have premiered an animated video for their new song “Rise Of The Fearmonger.” This track is from the band’s new album “Fearmonger,“ which will be released on February 28.

The group commented:

“In this video, the artist Costin Chioreanu nicely represented the lyrical concept of the song; the rise of fearmongering, anti-intellectualism and the post-truth era we are witnessing nowadays.

The track was the last one we wrote for the album and was written in a blink of an eye without barely being reworked contrarily to most of our songs. It has a raw energy that prepares the you well to the sonic assault that is ‘Fearmonger‘.”

Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger, Steve Vai, Etc. To Guest On Devin Townsend’s New Album “Empath”

Devin Townsend has revealed that Chad Kroeger (Nickelback), Steve Vai, Anneke Van Giersbergen, and Che Dorval (Casualties of Cool) have all guested on his new album “Empath.” Previously announced guests include: Elliot Desgagnés (Beneath The Massacre), Mike Keneally (Dethklok, etc.), Morgan Ågren (Kaipa), Sam “Samus” Paulicelli (Decrepit Birth), etc. The album is expected to be released in March.

Townsend said the following in a series of tweets:

“No sleep tonight. I’ve got the final stages of this year long process rolling through my mind. Almost done…another 3.5 weeks and this stage of it (the album) will be wrapped up.

Listened to the roughs of Empath on the flight and it had me teared up the whole way. I haven’t had this visceral a reaction to the work in many years. To think It all stemmed from taking a vacation! my god, what an intense period this has been. I’ll remember this past two years.

Thanks to some further guests, Anneke Van Giersbergen, Che Dorval, Chad Kroeger, Mike Keneally, Steve Vai, Lords Of The sound orchestra… it’s been total catharsis and tied intrinsically to the process of working through this transformation. It’s a lovely, complicated, weird one

Some people will totally love it, a fair amount will take awhile to have it sink in, some won’t get it at all, some will definitely prefer the bonus disk or the previous work, but fuck me, did I ever need to get this out of my system. It’s like 12 years of vomit at once…

I had a choice to either go commercial or uncompromised on this. Thanks to Garth Richardson and Chad for convincing me to not compromise. It’s a hard choice as you get older because the temptation to play it safe is huge for the sake of family and security.

Exhausting… pure catharsis. It was about middle age, realization, fear, death, moderation, meditation, and overcoming the internal dialogues. I guess it was ultimately about getting it right after all these years, then kind of realizing that you just have to let it all go…

Music is just an expression of gratitude I think. Ultimately it’s just another album in a long line of albums, some will like it, some won’t. But it appears as if it will be accurate, and that’s a huge huge relief.

Three drummers, two bassists, orchestras, choirs, ducks, cats, goats, birds, whales… and I didn’t sabotage this one, for once…

Have to be at the studio in 3 hours after a sleepless night. Sweet. Luckily it’s not an immensely complicated mix 🙄

There’s a reoccurring theme on this project that seems to have appeared, and that seems to be one of ‘anti-suicide’”

Devin Townsend’s New Album Will Feature A Guest Appearance From Beneath The Massacre’s Elliot Desgagnés

He joins previously confirmed guests: Mike Keneally (Dethklok, etc.), Morgan Ågren (Kaipa), Sam “Samus” Paulicelli (Decrepit Birth), etc. Townsend plans to finish the effort this week and a March release is expected.
