Cloudkicker Announces Live Release

In early 2014 it was announced that enigmatic prog outfit Cloudkicker would tour North America with Intronaut. Message boards went crazy over this announcement, as Cloudkicker, aka Ben Sharp, had vowed the band would never play live.

The two bands piled into a van and every night played to an overzealous fanbase who knew they were experiencing a perhaps once in a lifetime opportunity.

For those unfortunate ones who missed a show, the band stopped off at Texas recording studio, The Fathom Tree, and played the set start to finish live and captured it all on tape. Century Media is proud to release "Cloudkicker - Live With Intronaut" from this recording session. The track listing is:

1. Subsume Part 1
2. Subsume Part 2
3. We are going to invert.../Here, wait a minute, damn it!
4. We're goin' in, we're going down.
5. Seriosity
6. You and yours
7. Dysphoria
8. Subsume Part 8
9. Push it way up!

The album will be in stores on November 24th. The CD version is available as a digipack and the vinyl comes in 4 colors limited to 1500 copies worldwide:

500 Black vinyl
450 Piss Yellow vinyl (US retail exclusive color)
350 Royal Blue with Sliver & Black Splatter
200 Coke Bottle Clear and Bone split

Pre-orders are available over at this location and footage from the band's Cleveland show can be seen below. More...

Intronaut Announces 10th Anniversary Shows

"We're taking a break from writing a new record to celebrate our 10th anniversary as a band with this special run of shows. We haven't finalized a set list yet, but expect at least one song from every release, and maybe a special guest or two to come out and help us play them. Joining us on these shows will be our Canadian friends Anciients, and the LA show will feature Ides Of Gemini, Silver Snakes, and The Great Wall.

"We are also planning a couple special 10th Anniversary releases, hopefully to be available by this tour, so keep an eye out for that. Thank you to everyone who has supported Intronaut for these past 10 years! We love you forever."

TesseracT Announces North American Tour

U.K. progressive rock band TesseracT will once again be returning to North America. It will be the band's third tour supporting the critically acclaimed "Altered State" album (see review here).

Former touring partners, Intronaut, who will be fresh off a tour of their own with Between The Buried and Me and Deafheaven will be direct support. To make these events even more special, instrumentalists, DIY prog artist, Cloudkicker, will be touring for the first time ever with the members of Intronaut as his backing band.

Comments TesseracT:

"Last year we spent a few short weeks with a bunch of west coast musicians called Intronaut, stalwarts of the scene who have been honing their skills for years into an awesome blend of progressive jazz tinged metal. For as long as we can remember there has been a home studio producer of genre defying music called Cloudkicker. He has until now been restricted to the studio. So, it's with great pleasure that we get to rejoin our brothers in Intronaut, and be a part of Cloudkicker's first ever tour! This will be seriously fun."

Intronaut comments:

"When we first met Ben a few years back and discovered the Cloudkicker album "Beacons", we unanimously fell in love with it and have since bugged him to let us be his band. Now it is finally happening. Intronaut is absolutely over the moon about this once in a lifetime opportunity for Cloudkicker fans to hear his stuff live. Sweetening the deal even further is the fact that we get to do the tour with our favorite British chaps in TesseracT. This tour is going to kick ass!"

Cloudkicker, aka, Ben Sharp elaborates:

"This just happened to be a time when Intronaut was free and, incredibly, I was able to get the entire month of April off from work. We have been in touch since 2010 and they had told me a few times that we could make this happen, but it wasn't until last fall that I decided to give it an honest effort. Having the professionalism and technical proficiency of a band like Intronaut was the piece of the puzzle that finally encouraged me to pursue this since they are making it so easy for me. I know that when we show up for the first night of the tour everything will be locked in and we can just focus on having a good time." More...

Katatonia Announces North American Tour

Katatonia has announced a co-headlining North American tour, the "Uncrowned & Vertikal Tour," with Cult of Luna plus special guests Intronaut and TesseracT.

The two-week run will commence September 23rd in Boston, Mass. VIP packages will be available next week, along with the public on-sales beginning Friday, August 9th.

Commented vocalist Jonas Renkse: "Dear North Americans! We are happy to announce yet another co-headline tour in support of Dead End Kings, this time with fellow Swedes Cult of Luna plus support from Intronaut (US) and TesseracT (UK)!

"Since we have been touring your continent quite a bit the last few years, we thought it was about time to re-decorate the good ol' setlist a little. Right now we are rehearsing and going through some of our hidden gems, songs that we haven't yet picked up or rarely have played live before. It will probably be as exciting for you as it is for us!

"Please note that it won't be an 'old-school' party, but an evening with atmosphere so thick you could cut it with a knife! Oh, and we will probably have time to play some of the 'hits' as well. All in all, we will squeeze out as much Katatonia as possible each and every night, so let's do this one together once again, shall we?"

The upcoming North American tour will coincide with the release of "Dethroned and Uncrowned," the band's debut album on Kscope (sister label of Peaceville), home to Anathema, Amplifier, Steven Wilson and most recently, Wisdom of Crowds, the new project from Bruce Soord of The Pineapple Thief and Katatonia's very own Jonas Renkse.

"Dethroned and Uncrowned" will release September 10 in North America to celebrate Kscope's fifth anniversary. It can be pre-ordered now at this location. More...

Castle Denied Entry To Croatia

Castle has been out on tour with The Atlas Moth and Intronaut, and the band has now checked in with the following statement about being denied entry to Croatia:

"It was to our great regret that we were denied entry yesterday into Croatia at the Hungarian/Croatian border. Castle, along with the Atlas Moth and Intronaut tried for several hours and two different border crossings to gain entry to play the show but were denied finally.

"Even if we were to pay our way into the country in lieu of the paperwork needed they could not guarantee our equipment would have safe passage out of the country. We had been looking forward to this show more than any other on our European tour and are greatly pissed that we could not play for the metal maniacs from Zagreb and beyond. We hope to make it back next time.

"After spending the entire night driving around Croatia we've arrived in Italy for the show tonight at Taun in Fidenza, then on to Milan tomorrow..." More...

Bewilderbiest Changes Name, Posts New Song Online

New doom metal band, Bewilderbiest, featuring various members of other well known metal bands, has changed its name to Bereft. The band has also uploaded the song "Withered Efflorescence" to its new Facebook page for streaming.

"This will give everyone a taste of what this band is about; dark, depressing, doom," commented vocalist/guitarist Charles Elliott. "Definitely different from what we do in our usual bands. It's heavy as hell and we're all really proud how the record and collaboration came out, and we hope people feel the same way."

"On this particular track Sacha and Derek D. worked together on the music while Derek R. and I worked on the lyrics. I've always envisioned vocal tradeoffs with Sacha on this one, ever since the demo he sent me years ago, so that's what you hear on the chorus."

"This project has been on the back burner since 2008, so we hope people enjoy finally listening to it as much as we do. Come check out our first show ever at The Handbag Factory this month in Los Angeles!"

Bereft is made up of Sacha Dunable on guitar (Intronaut, Graviton), Derek Donley on drums (National Sunday Law, Graviton), Charles Elliott on vocals and guitar (Abysmal Dawn) and Derek Rydquist on bass (ex-The Faceless).

The debut album from BEREFT was recorded and mixed by drummer Derek Donley. Mastering has handled by Brian Elliott (EXHUMED, DYING FETUS) at Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, FL.

The band has one upcoming shows scheduled at the moment:

9/30 The Handbag Factory - Los Angeles, CA
