DEVIN TOWNSEND ON FUTURE OF STRAPPING YOUNG LAD - "I HATE TO DISAPPOINT YOU..." Canuck genius Devin Townsend has spoken with Alternativenation.net about upcoming projects and the status of Strapping Young Lad. As for new material: “There are always tons of future ideas! Kind of like how I let Casualties evolve the way it did, I let my future solo work evolve in whatever way it wants to. Next thing I’m doing is a Devin Townsend Project record which will be different than anything I’ve done in the past, but along the same lines of that epic heavy metal vibe. I plan on doing a symphony by the end of the year and I have a bunch of a little side projects I’m working on but I’ll let the ones that feel most important to me take a pole position and that would be the Devin Townsend Project.” On a Strapping Young Lad reunion: “I hate to disappoint you, but the short answer is no. Other then Jed, I don’t really talk to those guys anymore. A lot of fans are upset that there won’t be a reunion and that I’m not doing Strapping anymore, but I can’t spend anymore energy apologizing. I feel I have progressed as an artist and have moved on from that stage in my career.” Read more at Alternativenation.net.
