After releasing Epicloud last year to critical acclaim, the DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT is now ready to give fans the first preview of their next release: the Retinal Circus CD/DVD set! In regards to the Retinal Circus, Devin Townsend comments:
“So closing in on 8 months of work, we’re almost finished with the ‘Retinal Circus’! It’s been a huge amount of work for everyone, from the show, down to DVD & Blu-ray authoring, artwork, logistics…(not to mention the show itself!) but we’re almost there, and when watched in its entirety, it’s really a heck of an experience!
To tie you over until it’s out, here’s a clip of the song ‘Grace’…It’s out of context obviously, but hopefully gives you a vague idea of what’s about to come out.
It’s been a ton of work for everybody and we’re really quite proud of it…When the final products have been produced, we’ll let you know!
