Intronaut Signs To Century Media

SoCal ambient metal favorites Intronaut have inked a deal with Century Media Records following their previous one shot EP The Challenger for Translation Loss Recordings and a successful European tour with The Ocean this past fall. Having previously released their 2006 recordings Null and Void with Goodfellow Records, the signing to Century Media offers Intronaut a chance to reach a broader audience as their sound evolves with deeper intricacy in Isis-like fashion.

After The Challenger was released, Intronaut guitarist Leon Del Muerte departed the band and has since been replaced by longtime friend Dave Timnick. Sacha Dunable (vocals/guitars) states: “There is a level of chemistry that we’ve never had before now with our new guitar player Dave in the band. The new ideas that are flowing out of us are totally destroying everything we’ve done prior to this, and we can’t wait to hear what will come of it.”

Intronaut will also be playing a small short run of gigs as they prepare to deliver their first album for Century Media. Dates as follows:
