A new INTRONAUT track entitled "The Literal Black Cloud" is available for free download from BrooklynVegan.com. The song comes off the Southern California band's new album, "Prehistoricisms", which is scheduled for release on September 16 via Century Media Records. The drums for the CD were tracked at Opera Studios in North Hollywood and guitars and bass were laid down at Castle Oaks Studios in Calabasas. Vocals were completed at Clearlake Audio in North Hollywood, and the whole process was engineered by Josh Newell (JANE'S ADDICTION). A video for "Australopithecus" is being helmed by director Sera Timms (ISIS) and will be available shortly.
"Prehistoricisms" track listing:
01. Primordial Soup
02. The Literal Black Cloud
03. Cavernous Den Of Shame
05. Any Port
08. The Reptilian Brain
The group has been critics' darlings, receiving numerous accolades from such major publications as Decibel, Metal Maniacs, Outburn and Revolver, among a slew of others. Decibel even listed "Prehistoricisms" as "One of the most anticipated releases of 2008." In October 2007, INTRONAUT released "The Challenger" EP, but this will be the band’s first set of recordings with new guitarist and longtime friend Dave Timnick, with whom they have only recorded one PINK FLOYD cover ("Arnold Layne") for a Syd Barrett tribute disc up until now.
