Just as scheduled, the upcoming Tesseract, Intronaut, and Cloudkicker tour has been officially announced with its full run of dates! Also as we reported yesterday, Intronaut are indeed going to be the backing band for Cloudkicker! Here’s the skinny on how it went down:
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.
Incredible! Unfortunately, the dates aren’t that extensive, leaving huge gaps around the nation. I certainly won’t be able to make it (oh god, the tears), but I hope this isn’t the last we see of Cloudronaut.
