Official press release

One of metal's most intriguing, ominous and immensely talented figures, the mighty Devin Townsend, is extremely excited to announce that for the first time in his solo career he will be embarking on a headlining tour [flyer]. This will be a special evening exploring a 15 year musical journey with Townsend performing songs spanning his entire vast catalog. Supporting acts will be announced soon along with East Coast shows, but see below or visit to view the initial headlining tour itinerary.

Special VIP Packages and Presale Tickets will be available for the tour. Please visit: for more information.

Addicted was released in Nov. 2009 and has become his fastest selling solo record in his career. Townsend is currently working on two new albums for 2011. The new, mind-blowing offering, Addicted, was met with worldwide critical praise and scored very impressive first week numbers debuting at #168 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and #2 on the Billboard Heatseakers chart.

Townsend further states: "Sitting here at the airport after months of preparation for the European festivals, getting this material ready to be heard the way it's meant to be heard has been a pretty mean task. Last night's epic rehearsal was one of those moments when you realize the work put into making it right results in an awesome sound. I have been given the opportunity now to bring this music to North America in my first ever solo headlining tour. It's not a huge tour, but I really would appreciate seeing some of the familiar faces and hopefully some new ones as well. It's cheesy to announce your touring plans as 'the biggest or best' of anything, but I love this music, we've worked really hard to get it right. If you're one of the folks that dig it, then this should be a great, heavy and fun time that sounds the way it should. I'm honored to be able to play for you after all these years. There's a ton of great tours coming up, and here is my contribution. Rock the fuck out, stay positive."

Check out some footage of Devin Townsend Project from their early 2010 tour with Between The Buried And Me/Cynic at this location.

My fingers are crossed that he will play somewhere within 400 miles of me... and I think Ziltoid may have lice.

Well I wouldn't mind seeing him headline in Europe too... A longer set than in festivals is always cool!

I'm just trying to pray for Devin to be in Bogotá (Colombia) in the near future. We love his music. Hey, Dev, don't forget Colombia in your tour. We wanna see Ziltoid, because Colombia's got the best coffee in the universe
