More information: Transcending the boundaries of conventional music releases once again, the newest album by the Devin Townsend Project is a double studio album.

Devin Townsend - 30 albums into an astonishing career - has now just raised the stakes, bringing to a conclusion of a journey thatstarted 23 years ago, in the form of a new double album incorporating multimedia and a cross section of what he can present as an artist. A search for answers and the discovery of fruitful solutions, through the new project carefully called 'Devin Townsend Presents: Z²'.

This is essentially a follow-up to 2007’s ‘Ziltoid The Omniscient’. “With the old ‘Ziltoid’ record,” muses Hevy Devy, “I wanted to make a point that I could do things for $500, you know, with a drum machine and one microphone and a Line6 pod. But now, listening back to that record, in many ways it sounds like a glorified demo. They say every seven years you cycle through a full change, and ‘Z²’ (‘Ziltoid Squared’) is the original idea magnified extensively.”

This is more in line with a “typical” Devin release: militaristic rhythms and musical puzzles to be solved by the listener, combined with a full second disc of music to follow-up the last DTP album, ‘Epicloud’. The two new discs on ‘Z²’ are individually titled 'Sky Blue' (DTP) and 'Dark Matters' (Ziltoid).
