Devin Townsend’s Ziltoid 2 Will Be a Double Record
If the seven year wait for the follow-up to Devin Townsend’s Ziltoid the Omniscient has been driving you batty — and I think at this point it’s safe to say that 99 outta 100 people reading this are foaming at the mouth to hear this goddamn thing — well, great news: according to Mr. Townsend himself, Ziltoid 2 will make up for lost time with a cornucopia of new material:
So check it: Z2 is going to be a double record, one Ziltoid, one dTP, and the theme it’s ‘Ziltoid against the world’ ….so…

So… so… so FUCK YEAH, dude! I mean… ZILTOID AGAINST THE WORLD?! This shit is gonna be more epic than if they made a movie called Star Wars Vs. Star Trek Vs. The Avengers Vs. Batman Vs. Superman Vs. X-Men Vs. Spider-Man Vs. James Bond Vs. Harry Potter Vs. Avatar Vs. Freddy Vs. Jason Vs. The Evil Dead Vs. Miss Congeniality. The only way I could be more excited for this album now is if Devy announces that it comes with free head from your unrequited high school crush, too.
Ziltoid 2 starts recording May 2. No word on a release date.
In related news, according to Devy’s Facebook page, there are now two side-by-side craters on Mars named in his honor:
So that’s pretty awesome.
