While it may feel like forever until Intronaut’s fall tour with Between The Buried And Me, Enslaved and Nativ Construct begins, the California residents are doing their best to hold fans over by streaming their first new single from their forthcoming album The Direction of Last Things.
Titled as “Fast Worms,” the nearly seven-minute track is anything but fast timewise but definitely holds its own with some of the best prog-metal music available today.
When asked about their upcoming release – which hits stores November 13th via Century Media – frontman Sacha Dunable spoke about his band’s impressive and very minimal four day recording process.
“We decided that we don’t need to spend three weeks in a studio obsessing over every minute nuance,” explained Dunable. “The reality is that in that past, we’ve taken that approach, but then we go on tour and play all those songs tightly. So why not just write the songs, rehearse the hell out of them and then just go play them in an awesome recording studio?”
The singer/guitarist continued to add, “Intronaut is an actual band who rehearses together regularly. We make up one collective musical brain. There’s no reason why we couldn’t just have someone set up some mics, hit record and capture that. We ended up making our best sounding record in a third of the time.“
While pre-orders for The Direction of Last Things won’t be available until October 2 and the band’s tour won’t kick off until November 18 – tickets are available now – you can go ahead and stream “Fast Worms” as many times as you’d like below.
