In other news, Leon Del Muerte has recently quit Intronaut to pursue new musical endeavors. He will be reactivating his long-defunct Murder Construct project as well as continue to play bass in Phobia.
He says, "I had a lot of fun playing and learning new things with Intronaut and got to tour with some great bands and made a lot of new friends. Ultimately, I feel I've just strayed too far from my roots and could not hold back the other members of the band with my single-minded desire to grind. Peace, bitches!"
Replacing him will be the band's long time friend Dave Timnick. "Dave is a very talented and proficient musician, we're stoked. In addition to being a great guitar player, he is also a skilled percussionist and has studied tabla with Aloke Dutta. We can't wait to get things going with this revamped lineup!"
Intronaut will be touring Europe in November together with The Ocean, NahemaH, War From A Harlots Mouth and Mouth Of The Architect.
