DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT have announced the release of their new studio album, Transcendence, for September 9th, 2016. The upcoming record will be the seventh full-length for the DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT. Speaking about the new record, Devin comments:

“Transcendence, like every record I've done prior, is an extension of what’s been going on in my world, represented in a new batch of songs. I'm 44 years old now, and this is where I have been over the past two years since Z2

The follow-up to 2014’s Z2 double-album (half of which was made up of the DTP full-length Sky Blue), sees the award-winning Townsend exploring a relatively new way of working, collaborating with the entire DTP band during the writing stages of the record. Devon offers his views on this change approach for the band, stating:

“The result of this process is a record that I truly think the intention of is special. I 'found' gas to put into the tank and am glad I did. I think the intention, the theme, and the participation of everyone involved allows this album to act like a fulcrum between the past few years and what I intend to do next with the symphony. I am very proud of it and everyone involved.”

The album artwork was once again created by Anthony Clarkson, who Devin has been working with for several years now. Townsend provides his comments on the cover:

"He presented me the main image of the girl as a painted version, and I was intrigued and asked him to redo it with a girl he knew with photos. I liked the idea that it seemed like a mash up of religious and spiritual imagery, in a sense, representing the idea (to me) that these types of connections to the infinite are often more like identities we can cling to rather than what lies behind. In a sense, the character on the front almost seems like the ideologies she's representing are more 'brand names' than anything else.”

Check out the band's first offering off of Transcendence, the new single "Failure", which can be enjoyed via the video player below.

In addition to the new album, the DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT has also announced a North American tour in support of the upcoming release, which will see them co-headline with progressive metallers BETWEEN THE BURIED & ME and direct support on all dates from FALLUJAH.
