Very few bands can effectively mix intelligence with intensity like Southern California’s Intronaut, who essentially walk a fine line between psychedelic brutality, captivating hooks and devastating yet unpredictable time changes. This is the essence of thinking man’s metal and something so refreshing that it should serve as a vicious wake up call to masses forcing the entire genre to take notice. They kick off a massive North American tour with Cynic and Dysrhythmia on Thursday, July 22nd, so be sure to visit www.myspace.com/intronaut
now to view their entire touring schedule.
Intronaut took metal in a new direction with their Century Media debut, Prehistoricisms, but their sophomore offering, Valley of Smoke, will quickly solidify them as genre visionaries. This stellar new album, which Decibel Magazine praises as “One of the most anticipated albums of 2010” is set for a fall release and was once again produced by the acclaimed Josh Newell (Jane’s Addiction).
Sacha Dunable (vocals/guitars) states: “Intronaut is beyond stoked to get back out on the road and play some shows with our buddies in Cynic and Dysrhythmia. If you live near any of these cities, be sure to come out! We’ll be playing a few songs off our new record, and I could only assume that the other two bands are going to blow your socks off.
“Speaking of the new record, it’s just about done. It’s been quite exhausting fine-tuning everything, but it’s paid off. Josh Newell is killing it on the production side of things even while bogged down with some more lucrative projects, and we were lucky enough to have this guy Justin (from some band I won’t name drop, but will say that it rhymes with ‘Cool’) come in and co-write/perform on a song with us where we have two drummers and two bassists going at once. That’s right folks, pure excess. Other than that, this record rules so much that I’m literally embarrassed to have been a part of everything we’ve done up until now. Not to sound pretentious, but this is absolutely the best music ever made.”
