INTRONAUT Signs With METAL BLADE; New Album Due In 2020

Metal Blade Records has announced the signing of INTRONAUT. Currently working on the follow-up to the critically acclaimed "The Direction Of Last Things" (2015), the band plans to release its new album in 2020.

Sacha Dunable (guitars, vocals) has checked in from the studio with the following comment, regarding this upcoming record and signing: "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."

Formed in 2004, INTRONAUT — a term that means "inner traveler" — spent the next decade writing, recording, and releasing category-destroying long-players, the first of which was 2006's "Void" (Goodfellow). Soon after, the Los Angeles-based group caught the eyes and ears of Century Media Records, where they debuted with the incredible "Prehistoricisms" (2008). In the years that followed, INTRONAUT toured with TOOL, MASTODON, MESHUGGAH, BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME and ANIMALS AS LEADERS, while also issuing widely lauded full-lengths "Valley Of Smoke" (2010), "Habitual Levitations (Instilling Words With Tones)" (2013) and "The Direction Of Last Things" (2015).
