Devin Townsend has shared a new live video for his song “War.” The footage is taken from his new live album/Blu-ray, “Order Of Magnitude – Empath Live Volume 1,” which will be released on October 23. That set was filmed at the Roundhouse in London, England on December 12, 2019 and it featured the following artists: Ché Aimee Dorval (Casualties Of Cool), Morgan Ågren (Kaipa), Mike Keneally (Dethklok), Markus Reuter (Stick Men), Nathan Navarro, Diego Tejeida (Haken), Samantha Preis, Anne Preis, and Arabella Packford.
“Hello folks, here’s another song from the ‘Order Of Magnitude‘ Blu-ray. Amidst the chaos of recent times, I look back at this concert as being another world in a lot of ways, and although the DVD has many different feels throughout the concert, this song, ‘War’ is indicative of the beginning vibes of the show.
The whole idea with this concert was to experiment with playing songs from my catalog that didn’t rely on backing tracks or clicks, so assembling 10 people onstage to do this was no small feat. I wanted to create an experience for band and audience alike that was creative and without boundaries (to the best of our abilities), and I am very proud of it.
The next song we will release will be a different vibe, but for now, please enjoy this take on a song of mine from the Infinity era. It was originally about fighting back against your own self destructive mechanisms and thoughts, so maybe that’s appropriate for what has been going on recently. Again; Thank you for the support and I hope you are finding the strength to get through this chaotic year.”
