Devin Townsend Project “Rejoice” lyric video

Devin Townsend

Devin Townsend Project have released a lyric video for new track, “Rejoice.”

The song is taken from Townsend’s forthcoming double album Z2.

The LP is scheduled for release on the 27th of October and contains the Project’s Sky Blue set on one disc, and Dark Matter, the sequel to 2007’s Ziltoid The Omniscient, on the second.

Said Townsend in interview with Kerrang: “The album in general is about fighting through the ugly moments, and I think this song kind of summarises it. Z2 was a very challenging record – but after intense personal scrutiny, I feel very proud. It’s the most accurate representation of a challenging time.”

The full tracklist for Z2 is:

01. “Rejoice”

07. “Sky Blue”
08. “Silent Militia”
09. “Rain City”
10. “Forever”
