Canadian heavy music artist Devin Townsend has announced the 4th part of his career-spanning vinyl box-set series. ‘ERAS Part 4’ is set for release on the 23rd August 2019, and features ‘Ziltoid The Omniscient’ & ‘Z² – Dark Matters’, plus the vinyl debut of ‘Ziltoid Live At The Royal Albert Hall’ & ‘The Retinal Circus’ – across 9 pieces of 180g vinyl inside a sturdy 2-piece box set with an LP-booklet filled with liner notes and comments by Devin.

Devin comments: “Continuing in the ERAS series is volume 4, these box sets have been very special to me in that commemorating the times and experiences of the past work allows me-for once- to stop and reflect on all the effort and time that went into documenting these moments. I’m exceptionally proud of these albums, and to have a complete set of the work at this level of quality is a dream come true for me.

You can pre-order now here, including several limited coloured vinyl versions: https://devintownsendproject.lnk.to/Eras-VinylCollectionPartIV

Devin released his latest, critically acclaimed solo album ‘EMPATH’ in March. Watch the video for ‘Spirits Will Collide’ here: https://youtu.be/AdHJurX0yVA
Order the album here: https://devin-townsend.lnk.to/Empath

‘Empath’ received incredible reactions in the press, find a select few below:
Strap yourselves in and say hello to one of your albums of the year, folks.” – Prog Magazine
Devin Townsend has created with ‘Empath’ a work that is unconventional, far from mainstream, and a work of genius.” – Metal Wani
Uncompromising, revolutionary maybe but without question Devin Townsend as you’ve never heard him before.” – Louder Than War
’Empath’ showcases the multi-coloured weapons on Hevy Devy’s arsenal” – Planet Rock
an endless all-you-can-eat buffet of musical style served up with immaculate precision” – Daily Sport

Over the past few years, the success that Devin has slowly worked for has fortunately come with the power to control his own creative destiny. The recent successes with the DVD from a sold-out Royal Albert hall, or his 2012 ‘Retinal Circus’, or last year’s ‘Ocean Machine’ live DVD with the Orchestra and Choir of State Opera Plovdiv has put him in a position where with the new album ‘EMPATH’, he will once and for all define himself as a musical force outside of any particular genre classification.

On this album Devin has decided to see what would happen if all the styles that make up his current interests were finally represented in one place. To finally shake the fear of expectation, and just do what it is he was meant to do creatively, EMPATH, true to the name, is about allowing the audience a feeling for a variety of musical emotions. The musical dynamics represented on this single album are broad, challenging, and immense. To approach this sort of work with a long history of what makes heavy music ‘heavy’, allows this to be done with a type of power rarely heard.

Joining Devin on this album is Frank Zappa alumni Mike Keneally as music director, as well as Morgan Ågren (Mats And Morgan, Frank Zappa, Fredrik Thordendal), Anup Sastry (Monuments, Periphery), Samus Paulicelli (Decrepit Birth, Abigail Williams), Nathan Navarro, Elliot Desagnes, Steve Vai, Chad Kroeger, Anneke Van Giersbergen, Ché Aimee Dorval, Ryan Dhale and the Elektra Women’s Choir.

A bold statement with massive production values and dynamic, uncompromised musicality. This is a statement about not only pursuing creative freedom in a conservative scene, but also trying to show that heavy music is truly a valid musical tool.

THE PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #316   (SeaProg 2019 Festival Wrap-Up Show)

By the time this podcast is posted, SeaProg 2019 will be another page in the history books… and I’ll be exhausted.  So this week I’m letting ALL the SeaProg 2019 artists do the show by themselves.

There is (almost) all different music on this show, so tune in or grab it, to hear new tunes!

I want to thank Dennis, Jon, John, Joe, Dave, and Tom (The Seattle Festival of Avant and Progressive Rock’s Central Committee) for supporting me in hosting seven… count ’em… seven SeaProg preview shows.  You guys are great!

I would also like to thank Nate, Jonathan, Julie, Trey, Markus, Brenden/Jennifer, Tim, Michael, Stefan/Per, Alex, Dani, Riley/Justin, and Bill for their time and effort in doing interviews, creating station ID’s, and generally putting up with me and my production deadlines.  I hope these fine artists think this was as worthwhile, as I do!

Lastly, I hope you listeners have enjoyed these shows; they continue to be the most downloaded/streamed ones I create.  And that makes feel very positive about the future of SeaProg!  Thanks for listening!

And remember, you can access podcasts of any previous Progressive Tracks Show at: http://www.progzilla.com/?s=progressive+tracks (there are over 150 now!).
