Last month, Devin Townsend showed lots of signs that his new album Epicloud was making great progress. And this past weekend, Hevy Devy was joined in the studio by none other than long time collaborator and former The Gathering singer Anneke Van Giersbergen.
For fans of the Devin Townsend Project’s Addicted, this is fantastic news since Giersbergen was featured heavily on the 2009 album. Giersbergen was equally excited to once again work with Townsend, revealing the following this past Saturday (April 14) via Facebook:
“Mister Devin Townsend is a genius, I cannot tell you how awesomely fantastic his album will be. Epic! Epic! Epic! And he made me do 20 hours of the loudest and most gorgeous vocals I’ve ever done. XxX”
Both Townsend and Giersbergen have also posted numerous pictures online from the weekend recording sessions (including the one above). This comes just around the same time that Townsend revealed that Epicloud will tentatively be released on September 24. Thus, let the countdown for Epicloud begin!
