Devin Townsend - guitar virtuoso and music genius - recently released his latest effort, Epicloud, under the slogan: "It's Epic, it's Loud, it's 'Epicloud'". Today finally sees the premiere of Devin's new video for the track "Lucky Animals", off of the new album Epicloud.

The video was created on the basis of combining all sorts of amazing and outstanding self-recorded videos that were submitted by Devin fans from all over the world, to make "Lucky Animals" a very special visual experience for everyone. More than 150 videos were submitted, out of which a good 130 made it into the video in the end (due to quality or legal issues some could not be used unfortunately).

Check out the new "Lucky Animals" video here:

In regards to the video, Devin Townsend comments: "Hey guys! So here's what we came up with for 'Lucky Animals'! We tried to use at least a clip from everyone's contributions, I really hope we succeeded =) ...The sync was a little difficult with some of them, and the quality varies between them all, but man...such fun! It's a great feeling to see people having a good time, and it makes us feel great that we're all having a good time with such a dumb song. Thanks a lot for this! Feel free to post your full videos on Youtube as well!"

Devin Townsend recently played to a completely packed out Roundhouse in London on October 27th, wrapping up most of his entire career in a 3+ hour-long set. Narrated by Steve Vai on three big video screens, this "Retinal Circus" performance was accompanied by Baby-Ziltoid, Jed Simon, Anneke van Giersbergen, to name but a few, plus various actors, animals and other performers. For those who didn't make it to the show and also missed the live-stream of the event, this spectacle was filmed and will be available on DVD and Blu-Ray later in 2013, so watch out for more info about this coming soon!
