Canadian metaller The Devin Townsend Project will headline the seventh instalment of Leeds' Damnation festival.

Townsend will be bringing his 'wall of sound' to close the Jagermeister Stage with a bang on Bonfire Night, Saturday 5th November 2011 at University of Leeds Union. Taiwanese black metallers Chthonic have also been added to the bill, playing the Terrorizer Stage.

Festival director Gavin McInally said, "It's not often that bookings go our way so to be able to announce the Devin Townsend Project in a year when Ulver and Godflesh have already confirmed, is something special.

"As fans travelling to Bloodstock Open Air this weekend will find out, Devin's shows are more often than not the highlight of any festival bill and we are delighted that he'll round off a Jagermeister stage crammed with some of the finest live metal acts around.

"Chthonic are another sterling addition to what is now the best Terrorizer Stage we've ever put together; Ulver, Decapitated, Doom, Shining, Chthonic, Dragged Into Sunlight, Altar of Plagues and Paul Catten performing Medulla Nocte - a proper reason to start a riot.

"With God Is An Astronaut, Evile, Turisas, Amplifier, Xerath and Astrohenge adding some real diversity to the event, all we need now is the backing of like minded fans to make this year a major success."

They join a line-up of confirmed acts including Ulver, Godflesh, God Is An Astronaut, Evile, Turisas, Xerath, Paul Catten performing Medulla Nocte, Shining, Astrohenge, Decapitated, Amplifier, Altar of Plagues, Doom, Dragged Into Sunlight, and many more bands to be announced across at least three stages.
