Devin Townsend is officially one of the top metal artists to keep track of on Twitter. Previously, he’s used tweets to reveal (and ignite) special collaborations. But last night, Townsend leaked via tweets who he’ll be spending time on the road with this coming Summer.
In response to a fan’s question as to whether he had any plans to tour the U.S. soon, Townsend replied “Yup, with Children Of Bodom in June.” Unless if Townsend spoke too soon or was merely having fun with the person asking the question (whose user name is BodomDethtroll), his reply is pretty clear: Devin Townsend and Children Of Bodom will be touring together this Summer! So much for Children Of Bodom not touring the U.S. because of the IRS, eh? This also comes shortly after Townsend revealed plans to perform all four albums under the Devin Townsend Project moniker in its entirety during four separate shows in London at the end of the year.
This tour already has us excited, and rightfully so. Townsend and Bodom’s styles of metal are slightly different but also complementary to each other. Plus, Townsend and Alexi Laiho are awesome guitarists, meaning this tour will definitely have its fair share of shredding. Unfortunately, not much else is known about the tour (including dates or more openers). We’ll keep you updated when more is revealed.
