Devin Townsend Announces U.S. Headline Dates with Thank You Scientist and Oni


If you follow Devin Townsend closely (and why wouldn’t you?) you’ve probably noticed that lately he’s been talking a whole lot about the Devin Townsend Project as if it’s a necessary day job, one he doesn’t necessarily want to be doing anymore but which pays the bills and enables him to pursue more creative and personally satisfying endeavors (Casualties of Cool, the $10 million  symphony about dicks, etc.).

It’s cool of him to still humor us in the process, too, I guess? I personally love the more outside-the-box stuff Devin’s done of late, but I still like DTP, also. And I know other folks aren’t as open-minded (see also: the fact that Devin STILL gets asked questions about Strapping Young Lad), so the demand is most certainly there for DTP more than Devin’s less metal stuff.

Anyway, Townsend just made an announcement about some headline tour dates to surround his already-announced touring with Opeth and Gojira, essentially the same thing Gojira did earlier today — dates to and from the start and end of the tour. Thank You Scientist and Oni will support. Here ya go:
