Devin Townsend has launched the third – and currently last – episode of his Ziltoid TV web series.
In the latest edition, Ziltoid the Omniscient is warned off keeping a poozer as a pet because its mother, Blattaria the War Princess, could “cause this mission substantial problems.” But he replies: “There’s millions of those things down there. She’ll never know – don’t worry, guys!”
ZTV promotes Townsend’s latest album, Z2, which continues the story of the coffee-swilling alien. It was released yesterday and contains two separate titles – Devin Townsend Project set Sky Blue plus Dark Matter, the follow-up to 2007’s Ziltoid The Omniscient.
The Canadian mastermind recently said: “The album in general is about fighting through the ugly moments. Z2 was a very challenging record – but after intense personal scrutiny, I feel very proud. It’s the most accurate representation of a challenging time.”
He’ll play four UK dates next year, including a show at London’s Royal Albert Hall where he aims to outdo his 2012 Retinal Circus performance in the same city.
