Just a couple of hours ago I booked my tickets to watch Devin on the 24th of March in Los Angeles. I haven't heard a single track from Empath yet. Have been holding out for the 5.1.Yep, seeing Devin here in Nashville on March 12th. There seems to be the notion of Markus Reuter playing with him?
So from what I've gathered from following Dev's Twitter feed, I have a feeling that this is going to be part of an Empath "Ultimate edition," and I suspect that we may not be seeing a stand-alone blu-ray release, which is unfortunate and would most likely result in quite a few passes from people on this forum. Just some speculation, though, I could certainly be wrong.

They have been around for a while although I have only bought a few things from them: RPWL - Stock (SACD) and Big Big Train - Stone & Steel (Blu-Ray) that were long OOP and had no problem with those. If I remember correctly they are the US arm of Inside Out Music (US connection)I have never heard of LaserCD but their list of artists look like my shopping list the last 4 years; thanks for sharing.
For sure. Amazing song, and his vocals are almost super human. Unreal how he pulls that off live, night after night.My order is in. Saw Devin back in February in Brooklyn at a sold out show. Lucky for all of us this was just before the virus really hit. Great show. Hearing “Kingdom” live as the encore was almost life changing, what a powerful song.
