Intronaut was originally brought on to the tour to replace Jesu for initial dates since they were delayed entry to the country.
Since Jesu is not in the country just yet, Goodfellow recording artists INTRONAUT have been asked to fill in for them on the the following dates of the ISIS tour, commencing today.
Here are those INTRONAUT tour dates:
2.22.07 San Diego, CA @ The Casbah (w/ ISIS, OXBOW)
2.23.07 Tempe, AZ @ The Clubhouse (w/ ISIS, OXBOW)
2.24.07 Albuquerque, NM @ Launchpad (w/ ISIS, OXBOW)
2.26.07 Oklahoma City, OK @ Conservatory (w/ ISIS, TORCHE)
2.27.07 Fort Worth, TX @ Ridglea Theater (w/ ISIS, TORCHE)
2.28.07 Austin, TX @ Emo's (w/ ISIS, TORCHE)
3.01.07 Houston, TX @ Numbers (w/ ISIS, TORCHE)
One or two more shows may be added to this in the days to come.
As previously reported, when JESU does officially join the tour, INTRONAUT member Danny Walker will replace the band's regular drummer Ted Parsons for the remainderof the tour.
Jesu are still stuck in England and will not be playing the Spaceland, L.A headline/release party. Work permits for Jesu have still not been cleared by U.S officials/customs and the band are not allowed into the U.S until the permits are officially cleared. The band are yet to receive a date of clearance and simply have to wait until they do so before entering the U.S, hence Jesu will not be appearing at any shows with ISIS until the permits are available and Jesu can leave England.
"Hopefully the band will not miss more than the first week of this tour, being the bands first tour of the U.S.," comments Hydrahead.
In related Jesu live line up news, Jesu bass player Diarmuid Dalton will not be playing any of the U.S dates due to being refused a work permit for the U.S for this tour. Diarmuid has been replaced for this tour by long time collaborator (and fellow Birmingham, England native) bass player Dave Cochrane (Justin and Dave played together in Head Of David, Sweet Tooth, Ice, God and now their new project together GREY MACHINE).
Drummer Ted Parsons has also been unable to make this first Jesu U.S tour due to family commitments and has been replaced by drummer Danny Walker, a Los Angeles native who plays for many bands including Intronaut.
J.K. Broadrick triumphantly returns with his second, and quite appropriately titled, Jesu full-length (the follow-up to last year’s critically acclaimed Silver EP) due tomorrow on February 20. The Hydrahead releases states: "Packed with eight gorgeously hypnotic tracks in just over an hour, Conqueror exhales a dreamlike mist of weighty celestial ambience, underwater phantasms and slow-rolling nebulae, fomenting the kind of kaleidoscopic rapture—brimming with lush electronics, dulcet guitar textures, massive riffs, and lavish atmospheric hues—that makes us swear we’re on drugs."

Boston based doomsters ISIS have posted the following update:
We hit the road on Friday, March 11, for a short string of US dates, and we hope you can make it out to a show or two. These will be our LAST shows in the US for some time, so if you wanna catch us live and you live any where near any of the upcoming dates, now is the time. In addition to being our last US shows for some time, we will also mention that we are playing some older material on this tour... not Red Sea or Mosquito Control old, but at least a few tracks from both Celestial and Oceanic, so if you`ve been missing the "old" us once again, now is the time.
After this brief tour, ISIS will be embarking on an European tour with JESU. For a complete list of live dates, visit the band's official website.
Jesu, who feature former Godflesh/Napalm Death man Justin Broadrick, will release their first album on the Hydra Head label at the end of January. As yet untitled, this will have eight tracks, including 'Your Path To Divinity', 'Walk On Water', 'Sun Day' and 'Guardian Angel'.
