Devin Townsend Project have announced a European tour.
The dates will take place in 2017, and have been set up in support of latest album Transcendence which is due out on September 9. Support will be shared with Between The Buried And Me and Leprous.
Townsend said: “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 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.”
Townsend will be joined onstage by Dave Young, Mike St-Jean, Ryan Van Poederooyen and Brian Waddel.
Tickets go on sale July 8.
Townsend will appear at the TeamRock-sponsored HeavyCon at Birmingham’s NEC on September 30 - October 2.
