As previously announced on MetalTalk.net, The Devin Townsend Project will soon be releasing 'Contain Us', a special tribute box-set for their epic quadrology ('Ki', 'Addicted', 'Deconstruction', and 'Ghost')!
Due out November 29th in North America, 'Contain Us' was designed and created by Man Alive's Tom Bejgrowicz (who also conceived the classic and must-have Misfits Coffin box-set) and is the ultimate collection for every diehard Devin fan.
Pre-orders are now exclusively available at CM Distro, so be sure to reserve your copy here! The standard box-set is priced at $80.00 while the hand-numbered box with the 10" and a lithograph drawn and autographed by Devin is $100.
