Devin Townsend Project is returning to Australia and New Zealand in 2017 and today, Aussie prog/post-rock/instrumental sensations sleepmakeswaves are announcing that they will accompany HevyDevy on the entire May 2017 Australian/New Zealand tour.
Since recording and releasing their most epic record to date, ‘Love of Cartography’, they’ve been back to the UK and Europe twice, China, South East Asia, New Zealand, North America, and looped around Australia a bunch of times and shared stages with some incredible bands – Karnivool, Dead Letter Circus, The Contortionist, Opeth, Monuments, Skyharbor and of course a very special tour with the reunited COG.
Album ‘Love Of Cartography’ signaled their continued desire to map new creative directions. Recorded with Nick DiDia at Studios 301, the album’s singles ‘Something Like Avalanches’ & ‘Great Northern’ received airplay on triple j and across Australian & international community & college radio. ‘Love of Cartography’ was also nominated for an ARIA Award, J Award, AIR Award and 3 AU Review Awards. Their Sydney iconic Metro Theatre show was a memorable homecoming for the band and was recorded for posterity by triple j for Live at the Wireless.
Devin Townsend Project was last here in 2015 on a string of sold-out shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne – this time Perth and Auckland (NZ) are getting some HevyDevy love. The guitar virtuoso is one of the most celebrated singer/songwriter/guitarists in heavy music and Devin Townsend Project’s live show never fails to satisfy and amaze.
