ZTV Episode 2!

Posted on: October 14th, 2014

Two weeks ago, Devin Townsend launched the brand new Ziltoid website and the debut episode of ZTV. Today sees the release of the second episode of ZTV which you can view over at www.ziltoid.com

Devin had this to say:

‘Ok guys, episode 2! Wow… Ziltoid heats up and takes the pole position as the most adolescent use of capital by a dude my age! :) Oh well, it’s a metaphor (or whatever).
Anyways, the main version of the album ‘Dark Matters’ has a dialogue throughout and the three episodes we’re airing are intended to preface that story so it makes a modicum of sense. Episode 2 gives an insight into why Ziltoid is so childish, but ultimately it’s just something we had fun with. Plus you finally get to see Herman, the Planet Smasher!
Whenever folks complain about plot inconsistencies, grammatical errors or pronunciation issues, I simply get to reply: ‘well that’s how it is on Ziltoid’s planet…’ Then carry on.
Episode 2! Enjoy :)
Dev’


Last week saw the release of the first track to be taken from the forthcoming album Z² which is due out 27th October 2014 in Europe and 28th October 2014 in the US. You can check out the video for ‘Deathray’ here.

Posted on: September 30th, 2014

Hey guys! Devin here… been a few weeks since the Z2 album was delivered, and we’ve been getting everything ready for the upcoming tours and the release of the records.

As I’ve mentioned, Z2 is an experiment for me in trying different mediums to illustrate a concept, and as such…I’m really excited to present to you the new Ziltoid website, and the first of three ZTV episodes leading up to the album release!

The crowd funding campaign has allowed me to actualize Ziltoid and its music in ways I’d always hoped for, and the idea with the three web episodes is to set up the concept of the album. This first one is less over the top than it gets by episode three, but it needs to establish the whole story before it gets more absurd. It is a great pleasure to be able to do this, and was an awesome experience (other than having to explain to management and family why I spent so much money on puppets =)

Thank you for the support and allowing me to continue!

Devin
