Anneke van Giersbergen (ex-The Gathering vocalist) has posted news on the Agua de Annique website with details on her collaboration with Devin Townsend. It turns out that they’re collaborating on songs for the upcoming Agua de Annique album as well as having Anneke van Giersbergen record vocals for Devin Townsend’s new album. From Anneke herself:

June 2nd:

Hi guys!
Here I am in Canada, working with Devin Townsend for our new album and... for his new album (Addicted) as well. A very interesting week indeed.

Though we had the idea of doing something together we had no specific thoughts yet, only the distinct feeling that we would hit it off because of mutual respect for one another and a nice phone conversation :-)

I came up here with a blank piece of paper and good faith in my suitcase and we were right, we're doing some great stuff here!

In the daytime we record vocals for Devin's album. He pretty much knows what needs to be done so I am at his service to provide him with the necessary vocal stuff. In the evenings we jam, write new songs and demo them for my new album. It's a classic case of win-win don't you think?

I am shooting all this good stuff for our weekly video blog at the Agua VIP Area of our website. We'll put a new video up today for you with some nice footage of this past weeks shows and the first day in Devin's studio. Next week you'll be able to watch the further progress that we're about to make here in beautiful Canada.

June 9th

Hello dear friends,

It's been one hell of a week. As you may know, I was in Canada, writing and recording with Devin Townsend. Forgive me if I speak too much about it :-), but that was absolutely a great experience. He's one of the best musicians I have ever met and a very nice and genuine person as well. We recorded lots of vocals for his new album Addicted and together we wrote four songs for my upcoming album. Let me tell you in all modesty: It's gonna be marvy!!!


---------------------------

Maybe they’ll even let him play bass on their album!

Ziltoid is pretty bad whether or not you compare it to anything else or not.

The female vocalist is Ché Dorval.

Check her out here: http://www.myspace.com/chedorval

Ziltoid isnt meant to take seriously i dont think. its about an alien who comes to earth for coffee..... i love Devin's music and i dont mind Ziltoid but its not surprising that a lot of people dont like that album

Dorval has a great voice
