Devin confirms Ziltoid live DVD

Devin Townsend has confirmed that the DVD filmed at his Ziltoid show in London will be launched on November 13 via InsideOut.

The musical was staged at the Royal Albert Hall in April, featuring special guests Chris Jericho, Dominique Lenore Persi and Jean Savole, with narration from Bill Courage and a troupe of 12 singers and actors.

Townsend says: “To make artistic expression rooted in creativity, and to articulate it in these ways, at this sort of venue, was pretty awesome. The whole thing was quite a challenge – but ultimately it worked and we were all very satisfied with it.

“I think if you enjoy what I do, you’ll really dig it. Thank you so much for the opportunity!”

Ziltoid Live At The Royal Albert Hall will be released as a 44-page artbook with three CDs, two DVDs and a Blu-ray disc, as a 3CD/DVD digipak and as a single Blu-ray disc.

Townsend tours the UK in a stripped-down “evening with” format next month:

Oct 08: Brighton All Saints Church
Oct 09: London St James’ Church

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
