INTRONAUT New Album (November)

unnamedINTRONAUT to release ‘The Direction Of Last Things’ November 13, 2015

North American tour dates announced with Between The Buried and Me & Enslaved

Post-metal Progressive powerhouse INTRONAUT have revealed release details for their upcoming fifth studio album. Mixed by Devin Townsend, The Direction Of Last Thingswill be available November 13, 2015 via Century Media Records in the following formats; CD Digipak, Digital Download, and Limited Edition – First Run LP.
The initial LP run of The Direction Of Last Things will be limited to 2000 copies worldwide and presented in an awe-inspiring package. This double LP piece will be housed in a matte-finished gatefold with a spot UV print over highlighted art elements. Collectors will also be treated to a rarely utilized packaging element, a printed inner-gatefold tube, which not only houses the LP’s, but also a 12″x24″ poster, showcasing the full cover art in all it’s glory. Just when you thought it was over, LP’s will be pressed on mint green & black splatter, red & black marble, solid dark-green or standard black wax with an etching, which surrounds the music grooves, on side D. Actual color-run numbers to be announced at a future date.
“I don’t care how cliché it is to say; this is our best record yet! This is Intronaut at our most technical, brutal, catchy, and straight up fearless. I haven’t been this proud of an album since we recorded our first demo 10 years ago. We took a somewhat unusual approach and tracked most of it live over the course of four days, then handed it off to Devin Townsend to mix. The result is pure magic. Prepare your earholes for fornication” states Frontman Sacha Dunable on The Direction Of Last Things.
On the heels of the new album release, INTRONAUT will hit the road on The Coma Ecliptic Tour III featuring BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, alongside ENSLAVED and NATIVE CONSTRUCT presented by The Noise.
“It’s been over a year since our last North American tour. What better way to dust it off than with these three amazing bands. These shows are going to be insane, and we can’t wait to play some new songs for you guys!” adds Sacha.
The full tour schedule is below and additional details on the new album, The Direction Of Last Things to follow. For more INTRONAUT visit www.facebook.com/intronaut.
