Another victory for crowd-funded projects has been added to the list. In this instance, musical mastermind Devin Townsend reached out to fans for raise money for Townsend's 'Casualties of Cool' project. In phenomenal form, Townsend reached his full goal in only five hours thanks to the musician's die-hard fans, and now is at more than 250 percent of his goal with plenty of days left in the campaign.
From the twisted mind of the one and only Devin Townsend, the follow-up to 'Ziltoid the Omniscient' is coming soon. Fans have been begging for the return of their favorite coffee-drinking extraterrestrial, and finally, Townsend will begin dedicating his time to 'Z2' as he enters the studio in May.
The immediacy of social media allows musicians to reveal behind the scenes information about what they are working on without having to wait for a magazine to be published or an interview to be transcribed. That's exactly what Devin Townsend did on Twitter yesterday (Dec. 30), updating the progress of new material.
What is a ringmaster? Though he's the show's most visible performer, a ringmaster charismatically showcases awe-inspiring acts while focusing the spotlight towards a myriad of characters outside of himself. In more modern eras, a ringmaster has been even known to sing and dance with his performers during the show. Devin Townsend knows this, and he plays the ringmaster perfectly throughout his new live CD/DVD 'The Retinal Circus.'
