About This Episode

In today’s podcast we’re talking to the man who’s been providing the low end for the Devin Townsend Project.

Brian 'Beav' Waddell is busy gearing up for shows with The Devin Townsend Project, who are about to hit the road with Clutch and The Obsessed as part of the “Psychic Warfare” tour. Having released 24 studio albums in the last 22 years, Devin is one of the most prolific artists in any genre of music. A seasoned pro himself, it’s Brian’s intuition that has often proved as valuable as his musicianship. And with a new album, Transcendence, to promote and a packed touring schedule stretching ahead of the band, fans can expect plenty of more of his brutish bass riffs.

In this episode you're going to learn:

  • What it’s like working with Devin Townsend.
  • How they get pumped before a show.
  • All about the making of Transcendence.
  • How Beav made the transition from guitar to bass.
  • What gear he’ll be using on the upcoming tour.
  • And much, much more…
