THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT Performs 'Bend It Like Bender' For First Time In U.S. (Video)

October 30, 2010

Fan-filmed video footage of THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT — the band led by Canadian musician/producer Devin Townsend (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, STEVE VAI, LAMB OF GOD, DARKEST HOUR, GWAR) — performing the song "Bend It Like Bender" for the first time in the U.S. this past Thursday, October 28 at the Gramercy Theater in New York City can be viewed below. The band was joined on stage by Mark Cimino, who played guitar on some of "Addicted", the second in a series of albums from Townsend to be made available under the THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT moniker.

Townsend is currently working on THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT's third an fourth CDs, "Deconstruction" and "Ghost".

Even though "Ghost" is fourth album to be made available under THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT moniker, Devin is recording it third, because "Deconstruction" (the as-yet-unreleased third THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT album) is "a nightmare technically and I wanted to make something lovely before diving into that," Devin previously said.

Songtitles set to appear on "Ghost" include:

* Feather
* Radial Highway
* Fly
* Monsoon
* Infinite Ocean
* Moonshine
* Texada
* Blackberry

Townsend performed his "Ziltoid The Omniscient" concept album in its entirety on July 2 at Tuska as a special one-off world-exclusive show. His DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT also played a set the following day at the festival, which featured additional appearances by TESTAMENT and OBITUARY, among many others.

"Addicted" came out in November 2009 and has become the fastest-selling solo record in Devin's career.
