Intronaut have signed a new deal with Metal Blade Records. The band’s new album is expected to be released through the label in 2020.

Sacha Dunable commented:

“Intronaut are very excited to work with the legendary Metal Blade Records for our upcoming album and beyond. We’ve spent almost four years writing this thing, and it’s by far the most intense record we’ve ever made. It’s only fitting that it will come out on the most legit metal label around.”

Intronaut Part Ways With Drummer Danny Walker Following Domestic Abuse Allegation

Intronaut have parted ways with Danny Walker (also of Phobia, etc.). The band decided to fire the drummer after he allegedly assaulted his ex:

Intronaut commented:

“Due to some recent activity that we as individuals have zero tolerance for, Danny Walker is no longer the drummer in Intronaut.

The remaining three members will continue to write and prepare to record our 6th full length album.

We’re not sure who will play drums in our band from now on. If you’re out there, shout us a holler.”

Walker also issued his own statement denying the allegations:

“I wanted to wait to make a statement here, but there’s some serious allegations of me being a woman beater. My recent ex had a friend of ours post pictures of her with a black eye which was self inflicted. She’s doing everything she can to create a smear campaign and it’s working. She’s involving all my bands and trying to ruin my music career. I’m really seeing who my real friends are.

Thank you to all who have taken my side. Enough is enough. If you have questions and or concerns about this feel free to message me, but this is out of hand! I’d love to get to the bottom of this. There are always two sides to every story. Instead of drawing your own conclusions maybe listen. Thanks and hope we can all get past this. I will be doing what I can take legal action. I am literally in tears.”

MetalSucks are also reporting that an anonymous source, who happens to be a prominent musician in the metal community, told them two other women have accused Walker of assault as well.
