And today finally sees the premiere of Devin's new video for the track 'Lucky Animals', off of the new album Epicloud (2013). 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).

Headspace - New Album
'As 2013 approaches fast, we're busy beavering away at some new material, working towards the follow up album to I Am Anonymous (2013).
The schedules of the individual members of Headspace was always going to make live shows somewhat few and far between, but we're getting some really enthusiastic agents seeing if we're available for festivals in 2013. As of yet, we can't commit but we will definitely be squeezing in a few shows, perhaps surprise slots at a festival or too, and maybe, we'll come back to some of the Countries we played on the Anonymous Visions tour.
Can we be more vague? Probably not..
Can we give dates when you can come see us? Not right now..
Are we actually going to release another album and play any shows? Most definitely.
There will be some more "less" vague information coming...er... soon. That's for bearing with us..... All good things come to those who wait!
