As we recently reported, Devin Townsend has been filling his quarantined days raising more than $100,000 for COVID-19 relief through home studio live video concerts, recording and releasing an hour-long ambient guitar instrumental and video jamming with Brazilian thrash legends Sepultura.

Now, the electric guitar player has announced a new virtual event, Empath Volume 2: By Request, which will see him perform the set he was scheduled to play at the UK’s Bloodstock Open Air festival this year.
