Intronaut announce U.S. headlining tour

Intronaut-Tour

Los Angeles prog metallers Intronaut have announced that they will be headlining a U.S. tour.

Intronaut will see support from The Ocean and North. They are currently touring in support of their album The Direction of Last Things.

Intronaut commented on the tour:

“Intronaut would like to thank all you amazing people for your continued support of our band over the past decade, and especially with the release of our latest album. You guys are the best fans ever, and we’re lucky to have you! We are very excited to announce our first headlining run of 2016, with support coming from two bands we love. To give you an idea of our show, we are planning on playing all the songs from “The Direction Of Last Things,” as well as some songs from all our past records. We are also working hard on a beefed-up visual production that should take you from zero to I’m-freaking-out-man in record time.”

I hope the jean jacket wearing drunk and stoned dolphin in Intronaut‘s new video remembered to throw out the plastic ring six pack yokes from the many beers it likely consumed so as to not injure itself later on when it hops back in the pool. The “Fast Worms” clip from the prog metal band is truly…unique?

Perhaps the title of this article is click bait, for in the end the dolphin seems unhappy and seems to realize the simpler things in life are more enjoyable than “chasing the dream”.

If you want to see a dolphin ejaculate out of a blow hole while getting busy with a girl who looks vaguely like Megan Fox or see a drunk and stoned dolphin get in a bar fight, this bud’s for you.

tesseract-tour-poster“It was the best of times, it was the…blurst of times?!”

That about sums it up, as I bang around on this keyboard trying to sum up ways to describe this experience. I witnessed two nights of this unique tour. Twelve dates in the whole tour sold out. UK’s TesseracT headlined with Intronaut pulling double support duty. They played as the backing band for Ben Sharp’s Cloudkicker before their own Intronaut set. All tour long. Playing and mixing all the various instruments on his Cloudkicker recordings makes touring next to impossible. Intronaut finally filled that gap, after three years of planning. Very special. I’ve heard of single musicians doing double duty. Protest the Hero’s drummer did it touring with them and his old band, The Kindred. The Defibulators’ guitarist Roadblock did it as well, playing with The Dixons before a lengthy Defibs set. A whole band doing their set, plus a second set of music that has never seen a crowd is very rare.

TesseracT had a bit of a rougher time. Singer Ashe O’Hara was sick pretty much the whole month, even to the extent of not performing for the sold out dates in both Boston and Philadelphia near the end of the tour. In my interview with TesseracT’s bassis Mos WIlliams, he said the crowd was very accepting of the announcement and filled the vocal void with their own voices. Ashe did perform for the final night at New York’s Gramercy Theater, but he was looking rough when I saw him at Aftershock in Kansas, just six days earlier. Also, second guitarist James Monteith was absent for this tour, as well as the last. Regardless of the hurdles, they powered through and still created a very dynamic and textured atmosphere, very true to their performance styles. I was also treated to an extended photo shoot, both for sound check and their full set.

Wings Denied reveal “The Machinist” lyric video

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, June 25, 2014 at 9:02 AM (PST)

Wings Denied are a must hear metal and proggy hard rock outfit out of D.C. who will get your blood pumping. The band have intelligent, awesome transitions and riffage plus a great range of vocal approaches without the melodic parts ever sucking down the heavy into candy land. Can’t recommend their new Jamie King (BTBAM, Scale The Summit) tracked record Mirrors For A Princeenough. My favorite track is “Neant” featuring Joe Lester of Intronaut. This release has everything from moving piano parts to harsh metal sections to eerie passages and ghostly vocals akin to Dead Letter Circus. Top form stuff.

Now the band have premiered a new lyric video for the song “The Machinist” with Kerrang! Magazine.

In regards to the meaning of the song, vocalist Luka Kerecin shares, “‘The Machinist’ is a tongue-in-cheek criticism of the direction we, as a society, are headed-i.e. false sense of morality, lack of comradeship and overall decay of inherent human values. These have become acceptable, and in some instances encouraged. We are easily manipulated, much like machines and our machinists do with us as they please, discarding us once we’ve served our purpose- but it doesn’t matter as long as you have that new iPhone you’ve always wanted.”

Watch the lyric video for “The Machinist” here.

Wow, what a line-up and in a very historic metal region. Massachusetts has birthed many prominent bands in the past. Blood for Blood and Death Before Dishonor bludgeoned their way into Boston’s hardcore scene and the “Philswitch” Engage troops (All That Remains/Shadows Fall/Diecast/KillswitchEngage) rose metalcore out of the west. Massachusetts loves its metal, that’s for sure. It was evident on this night, as the show had sold the fuck out. Thanks Metal Blade for the in! On this tour, Between the Buried and Me brought along some serious contenders in modern metal. San Francisco’s Deafheaven have been infiltrating the ears of critics and concertgoers with their blackened, shoegazing approach to metal, giving no fucks along the way. From LA, Intronaut is definitely the prog side of the bill, spacing way out in a cloud of smoke and bass licks. Ontario’s telecaster troubadours The Kindred just celebrated their first release on Sumerian entitled Life in Lucidity.

Tesseract release “Of Matter” live studio video

Posted by longhairedpoet on Tuesday, February 25, 2014 at 12:55 PM (PST)

TesseractBritish prog-metallers Tesseract have released a video of them performing their song “Of Matter” live at the Sphere Studio.

“Of Matter” comes off of their latest album Altered State.

The band had this to say about the video:

“Way back in 2010, we filmed a live recording of “Concealing Fate” at Sphere Studios with Francesco Carmeli. We enjoyed this so much that we have always wanted to do it again, and Altered State gave us the perfect opportunity to do so. Sphere Studios London has now closed and moved to L.A, so it was especially important for us to go back and film the recording of “Of Matter” before Francesco moved the studio. This video is hopefully the first of four, that cover the whole of the latest album, where we aim to film four different recordings of the four different sections of Altered State in four different studios throughout our small little world. As with everything TesseracT, the video shows the slight evolution of each track as we take it from the studio on to the stage. We hope you guys enjoy it as much as we did!”

The band is currently on tour, check out tour dates along with the “Of Matter” video here.

IMG_8236This past Sunday started off as a rather busy day at my job with what seemed like an endless ten hour shift and ended on a high note after experiencing several bands I’ve been looking forward to seeing live for a long time.  Meshuggah, Animals As Leaders, and Intronaut are currently on The Ophidian Trek 2013 and they just happened to be in my backyard. Fortunately Meshuggah’s lead singer Jens Kidman had just kicked the flu’s ass and wouldn’t have to be replaced by a cardboard cutout of himself.  Unfortunately however, my ten hour shift forced me to arrive just as Intronaut was finishing, but I’ve been told they were excellent from my friends that arrived on time.

Intronaut enters studio

Posted by tyrusrunyan on Friday, October 12, 2012 at 9:31 AM (PST)

Very progressive L.A. metal band Intronaut have entered the studio to record their as of yet untitled fourth studio album. The drums will be recorded by John Haddan at Trench Studio and Derek Donley will handle all of the other elements. The band will be working with artist David D’Andrea for the artwork/layout and Andrew Schneider will be mixing the album.

You can watch a video of the practicing a new song here.

The album will be a follow up to the bands 2010 Valley of Smoke and is set for release in Spring of 2013 via Century Media. Frontman/guitarist Sacha Dunable comments: “After a year of intense, full-time writing mode, we are elated to begin recording our fourth full length this week. It’s a little early to have perspective on how it compares to our past records, but it should be a banger. Expect a wildly technical, emotionally charged, organic sounding record.”

Georgia boys Black Tusk might be the hardest working metal band this year, as the thrash trio just announced a run through the US that hasn’t been seen since Lewis & Clark. The band is supporting their October release Set The Dial, from Relapse Records.
