Devin Townsend Shares “Call Of The Void”

Devin Townsend has shared a new track called “Call Of The Void” as part of his “Quarantine Project.” This latest piece of music is inspired by All India Radio‘s “Can You Hear The Sound.“

Townsend commented:

“So this song is a favorite of mine. And theres a bit of a story to it as well:

I had been suggested the album ‘The Slow Light’ on Spotify by an artist I had never heard of called ‘All India Radio’, and it became one of my favorite albums I had heard in ages. I just absolutely fell in love with it, and in particular, a song called ‘Can You Hear The Sound’ which defined a whole piece of the year it came out for me.

When I left DTP, I went to Sweden to just clear my head and spend some time with friends, and during which, I learned the chords and structure to ‘Can You Hear The Sound’ and began jamming it with Morgan. It ended up being a lovely moment in time for me which I then mixed with Mattias at his house while he laid down some cool melodies.

I contacted Martin (All India Radio) on Twitter this week and asked if he would mind if I released this for the Quarantine Project and he agreed, so I made a quick video for it and I hope you like it. the term ‘Call Of The Void’ was one that I heard referring to that sensation when your driving beside a cliff and have a strange fear that at any moment you may just hurl yourself over.

Please listen to ‘The Slow Light’ by All India Radio and hear the original song I took this inspiration from. The structure is verbatim for the most part, and I thank Martin for writing such a lovely song and such a meaningful record to me.

Thank you for being cool enough to let me share this tribute to his song. It was really an important piece of music in my life. Can You Hear The Sound: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JxB640nytg

Some days are harder than others, I had a rough one yesterday, but we’re still holding on. Be well my friends, I wish you love and peace.

Call Of The Void Call It Quits

Call Of The Void have decided to call it quits. The band will play their final show at the Denver Hex Fest in Denver, CO on September 7.

The group commented:

“Call Of The Void is done.

We had to make a really tough decision. If we can’t put 100% behind our art, then it’s not fair to you or ourselves to keep this going.

We are very proud of what we have released into the world, this project was from the heart and meant everything to us.

Thanks to everyone who has helped us along these last 8 years. This business isn’t easy, so if you listened, bought something, toured with us or even let us sleep on your floor, you helped make this one of the greatest experiences of our lives.

We especially want to thank Andy Patterson, Drew Juergens, Blake Harrison and Ethan Lee McCarthy. We could’t have done it without you..

Love, Call Of The Void.

Had a lot of inquires about LP’s for sale. If anyone wants a copy of the remaining LP’s they are up for dirt cheap on our bandcamp page. We’ll put the remaining merch up soon.

Call Of The Void Premiere New Song “God Hunts”

Call Of The Void have premiered a new song titled “God Hunts.” This track is from the band’s new album “Buried In Light,” which will be released on May 10. Nathan Siegrist commented:

“This song is about forced religious indoctrination of at risk people/children. A tool used to maintain numbers in religious organizations, especially in small outsider groups. How families break the minds of their children to strip them of their individuality for self serving purposes. ‘God is harvesting the mind.’”

“This song is a full step into the evolution of our sound. We wanted to create an anthem of blind rage so we pushed ourselves musically and teased with black-metal overtones.”

Call Of The Void Premiere New Song “Living Ruins”

Call Of The Void have premiered a new song titled “Living Ruins.” This track is from the band’s new album “Buried In Light,” which will be released on May 10. Gordon Koch said the following about the record:

“This is a concept record on what drives people to walk away from everything, what drives them to blind servitude, isolation, and suicide in a seemingly ‘perfect’ world. Each song serves as a vignette into the events that push you over the edge and push you away from society as a whole. We are speaking from the heart, from personal experiences, the study of modern apocalypse cults and the people affected by them.”
