Devin Townsend on The MetalSucks Podcast #325
Devin Townsend is back on the show for his record-setting fourth appearance! We discuss his upcoming North American tour with Haken and The Contortionist, how his latest album, Empath, has ties to his journey into middle age, his realization that he is not a great band member and how that affects the creative process, how being a working musician is 80% logistics, all of his tours becoming special, one-of-a-kind events, and his plans on playing Strapping Young Lad songs this summer. Devin also shares his evolutionary theory on why kids are mean to their parents and talks accountability in music getting misconstrued as having a stance on morality.
Petar, Brandon, and Jozalyn, tackle the drunken Cameo video that Vince Neil made for a fan, Lamb of God’s entire new record being political in nature, and the joy of knowing Danny DeVito is a Mr. Bungle fan.
Songs: Devin Townsend – “Genesis,” Loathe – “Screaming,” Irist – “Burning Sage”
