Intronaut Release Cover Of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Run Through The Jungle”

Intronaut have released a cover of Creedence Clearwater Revival‘s “Run Through The Jungle.“ Frontman Sacha Dunable said the following about that:

“Sometime during the writing process for ‘Fluid Existental Inversions‘, I had the idea to cover this song, from one of my favorite bands and songwriters of all time. The relatively simple harmonic structure of the original recording made for a great blank canvas for us to ‘Intronaut‘ the song up quite a bit. We tracked most of the song during the ‘FEI’ session but didn’t have time to finish until this spring.”

Intronaut Premiere “Cubensis” Music Video, Reveal Details For New Album “Fluid Existential Inversions”

Intronaut have premiered a new video for their new song “Cubensis.” This track is from the band’s new album “Fluid Existential Inversions,” which will be released on February 28 via Metal Blade Records.

“Fluid Existential Inversions” Track Listing:

01. “Procurement Of The Victuals”
02. “Cubensis”
03. “The Cull” (feat. Cloudkicker‘s Ben Sharp)
04. “Contrapasso”
05. “Speaking Of Orbs”
06. “Tripolar”
07. “Check Your Misfortune”
08. “Pangloss”
09. “Sour Everythings” (feat. Cloudkicker‘s Ben Sharp)

Sacha Dunable said the following about the new record:

“We pushed ourselves to be bigger and better, musically speaking, and to me that’s the essence of progressive music. I love bands like Motörhead and AC/DC that give you the same thing over and over, but Intronaut is all about trying to break whatever mold exists – especially for ourselves – and give you something you haven’t heard before. On this album, there are drums played in ways I’ve never heard before.

There are synths used in contexts I’ve never heard before. Intronaut has the most unique bass player in all of heavy metal as far as I’m concerned, and I even practiced guitar to get myself out of my comfort zone. So I think we progressed and made the best album ever. I don’t even care if no one else hears it, if it was all for me I’d be satisfied.”

“The title is a phrase we came up with while discussing the involuntary instability facing humans, and all life is ever-evolving on Earth in these turbulent, uncertain times. Whether it’s real, imagined, being simulated, who knows, but we do know that our existence itself is confusing and absurd.”

Intronaut Tease New Song “Cubensis”

Intronaut have posted a teaser for their new song “Cubensis.” The full track will debut on December 11 and it will serve as the first single from the band’s upcoming album.

Intronaut Recruit Alex Rudinger To Play Drums On Their New Album

Intronaut have confirmed that Alex Rudinger (Whitechapel, ex-The Faceless, etc.) will be playing drums on their new album. The band recently started recording the effort at Clear Lake Audio in Los Angeles, CA. With this news, the group have also revealed that Ben Sharp (Cloudkicker) has been involved in the sessions as well.

The band commented:

“Just wanted to let you all know that we are in the studio making the sixth Intronaut full-length, and do indeed have none other than Alex Rudinger playing drums on this new record. We have been working with him for over a year now writing this thing, and his high level of enthusiasm and insane work ethic really helped us make an excellent bunch of songs together.

This guy is an absolute beast and this album is going to be our best yet by far. As of now he has committed to doing just the album, but hopefully if our schedules allow for it he will come play some live shows with us as well.

Also worth noting, our best friend Ben Sharp (aka Cloudkicker) has written a couple riffs and recorded some guitar parts on this album as well.

We are tracking at Clear Lake Audio in Los Angeles with Josh Newell as we speak, and in late September Kurt Ballou will mix at his studio.”

Rudinger added:

“I’m very stoked to announce that I’ll be doing session drums on the next Intronaut album! I’ve been working/writing with Sacha, David, & Joe for the better part of the last year now, & I couldn’t be happier with the material. It’s without a doubt some of the craziest stuff I’ve written on drums, & the overall compositions by the guys are brilliant.

I’ve had a blast working with them (truly some quality human beings), & am very excited to start tracking today with Josh Newell!

In the meantime, we thought it’d be fun to announce all of this with a play-through of an older Intronaut tune – one of my personal favorites, “Fast Worms”, from their last release ‘The Direction Of Last Things‘. Tracking starts today with Josh Newell at Clearlake Studios in LA, with an early-2020 release date planned (via Metalblade Records!). Hope y’all dig…”

Intronaut Sign With Metal Blade Records

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.”
