“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.”

Primus frontman Les Claypool said of the album in a recent Rolling Stone:
“As we started putting it together, especially with the expanded soundscape of having string and vibraphone and marimba, it started sounding to me like one of the early Peter Gabriel records meets Dark Side of the Moon meets The Residents. That’s what I get out of it. Obviously that’s some big-ass horn-tooting to be doing.”
The Residents vibe can definitely be heard in the group’s rendition of “Pure Imagination”, which can be streamed after the break. The album’s track listing and corresponding tour dates can be seen below.
It is unsure whether or not Tim Alexander will be performing with the band on tour, due to his recent open-heart surgery.
