Following the honor of receiving the “Riff Lord” award at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods awards earlier this past week, Devin Townsend Project have released a lyric video for their track “Offer Your Light”. Mastermind, and riff lord, Devin Townsend commented:
“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!)
“Offer Your Light” is featured on the group’s latest full-length Transcendence (InsideOut Music).
