Sacha Dunable, Dave Timnick: Intronaut, have begun work on their 5th full length album

Los Angeles based post progressive metal band, Intronaut, have begun work on their 5th full length album. The album will be recorded with Josh Newell (Cynic) with Devin Townsend handling the mixing. Vocalist/guitarist, Sacha Dunable comments.

"Really pumped on these songs. Overall its going to be a bit more dense and brutal than the past couple records, but mostly still the Intronaut you've grown to love or hate. We're tracking mostly live like real men in a real band, at Clearlake Audio, where we did "Valley Of Smoke" with Josh Newell once again engineering. Then we're sending it off to Devin Townsend to mix, which is super exciting."

The band will also be supporting Meshuggah in Anaheim today, replacing label mates, Warbringer, whom Disney deemed inappropriate to perform at the venue.

Named the best metal band by the LA Weekly, Intronaut, formed in 2004 and have released 4 full length studio albums and two EPs. They've toured with Tool, Mastodon, Animals As Leaders, TesseracT and were the backing band for multi-instrumentalist, Cloudkicker on his first and only national tour.

Also of Note from October 2014:

Cloudkicker "Live With Intronaut" to be released on 11/24 Subsume Part 1 streamed online Preorders available now

In early 2014 it was announced that Cloudkicker, one of prog's most enigmatic and mysterious artists, would tour North America with post prog metallers, Intronaut, as his backing band. Message boards and the blogsphere went crazy over this announcement, as Cloudkicker, aka, Ben Sharp, had vowed the band would never play live. The two bands piled into a van and every night played to an overzealous fanbase who knew they were experiencing a perhaps once in a lifetime opportunity.

For those unfortunate ones who missed a show, the band stopped off at Texas recording studio, The Fathom Tree, and played the set start to finish live and captured it all on tape. Century Media is proud to release Cloudkicker - Live With Intronaut, from this recording session.
