Double 180gm vinyl LP pressing includes bonus CD edition and booklet. For Devin Townsend, Casualties of Cool is more than just the latest release of a prolific career to-date. A project many years in the making, Casualties of Cool has seen Townsend look at himself in order to go forward. Digging out a battered old Fender amp and telecaster, he revisited the rootsy country and North American folk music of his youth. However, Casualties of Cool uses these familiar troupes as leaping off points. It is a chance to switch off from our hyper-accelerated world, it's relentless rush of 24/7 communication, and the competing voices that jostle for attention as they threaten to submerge our own. For Townsend, the themes of the record surround what he believes to be a bridge in his career; embracing the fear of leaving behind what people know of him.
