Devin Townsend Releases Fifteen Minutes of “Demo Sketches”


Earlier this year, Devin Townsend released Empath, which, somehow, after thirty years in the business, is one of his best albums to date (when will this dude finally run out of ideas???).

Now he’s released fifteen minutes worth of demos he’s been working on since Empath came out:

“Heres a bunch of shrapnel Im working on. No idea what any of it will be for yet, some are relatively complete demos, some are just a riff or melody…

“I always write, this stuff has been on my mind over the past few months, but I’m not really ‘writing’ yet, per se. Thought you might enjoy hearing a bunch of brain vomit. some of it is ok I think.

“I won’t really be ‘writing’ for some time yet, but this gives you an idea of how my process goes… I just jot down things as they come without judging them too much at this stage.

Lots more than this, but these are whas on my mind most atm I guess.”

You can listen below. I’m just digging into it myself, so let’s meet back here to discuss in fifteen minutes, m’kay?
