Devin Named "Riff Lord" At Metal Hammer Golden Gods

The DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT have been on the road for the majority of 2017 thus far as they continue to support the group's latest album Transcendence. Yesterday Devin was in attendance at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods ceremony in London, where he was given the event's "Riff Lord" award, which has been previously bestowed upon the likes of Dave Mustaine, Brian May, and Phil Campbell.

In response to being recognized and given such a high honor, Devin offfered the following statement,

“Hey all! Well heck, I guess I won an award for being a guitar guy...sweet! All those years of social ineptitude has manifested in an ability to play 32nd notes. Take that, dad! ...to celebrate, we are doing a 'lyric video' for a track I had been encouraged to release when the album first came out, but decided to go with another one instead. As it turns out, people seem to really like this song, so have at 'er! Here's a kind of rockin', kind of straightforward track from Transcendence called "Offer Your Light", written essentially about trying to look at the positive amidst the ever increasing sea of neurosis-inducing bullshit the world keeps spewing at us. I'm in the beginning stages of writing new music now, and I hope this finds a home in your listening world for the next 4 minutes or so...best part is; there's no guitar solo!"

- Lots of love, Devin 'Riff Lord' Townsend (apparently!)

As referenced by Dev in the statement above, the band have released a new lyric video for the song "Offer Your Light" off Transcendence, which fans can enjoy streaming below.
