Tour de Force



We’ve been hoping this day would come ever since we saw Devin Townsend open for Cynic and BTBAM on the Bonergasm Tour back in January; Devin basically played like a headliner on that tour anyway, despite his 3rd-from-the-top billing slate. The big lights, the scrims, the crystal clear sound, the totally pro performance… in our minds and our metallicized hearts, Devin headlined that show. Except it was like a really short, 30 minute headline set where two great bands played after him, leaving us with a severe case of Devin blue balls.

Blue balls no more, now that Devin will be doing his first ever U.S. solo headline tour come October. Wait, strike that — blue balls will continue, as only six West Coast dates have been announced. DAMN YOU, Devin! And damn you Anso DF, as the resident Los Angeles MetalSucks correspondent, for being the only one who gets to attend this tour and fap furiously along to DT’s music along with 1,000 or so other horny fans. And damn you all Europeans, who can catch Devin this Summer. Damn everyone.

In case you missed it, check out the posts Devin wrote for us when he took over MetalSucks for the entire release day of his album Addicted. It was, like, really cool and stuff.
