Devin Townsend Releases “Truth” Video from Ocean Machine 20th Anniversary Live Show
Devin Townsend is up to something… a whole lot of something! But before he gets back to the business of releasing new music there is this very important milestone to commemorate: the 20th anniversary of his landmark solo album Ocean Machine, which celebrated two decades in existence last summer.
Townsend marked the occasion by playing Ocean Machine in full at the Ancient Roman Theatre in Plovdiv, Bulgaria following a set of fan-requested tracks alongside the Orchestra of Plovdiv State Opera. You can now watch “Truth” from the “greatest hits” set, performed with the orchestra, below… and good god, it sounds absolutely fucking massive! Holy shit. And the visual direction is top-notch, too. Makes me very, very sorry I missed this show.
Devin himself comments on the upcoming live release:
“Hey there, Devin T here, taking a second to bring myself up for air from writing :)
“After a long and arduous process, the concert myself and the DTP performed in Plovdiv Bulgaria is finished, and here is your first view of it, ‘Truth’.
“I am very proud of this release and it represents a culmination of many years of material. The concert actually is in two parts, with Ocean Machine being the second. It was a fantastic night and an unforgettable experience with the die-hards travelling from all around the world to be there with us.
“As I move into the next phase of my life and career, this live in Bulgaria DVD stands as a monument for me, and what we achieved with the DTP.
“As always, words fail me when it comes to expressing what the support of the audience means, but I thank you and everyone involved for allowing this to happen.
“I hope you enjoy :)”
