Intronaut have parted ways with drummer Danny Walker (Phobia, Expulsion, ex-Exhumed, etc.) due to allegations of domestic violence. A woman opened up to social media sharing an image of a black eye claiming Walker, her apparent ex boyfriend, inflicted on her. Her post spiraled throughout social media platforms which inevitably reached the band’s attention.
DANNY WALKER BEATS WOMEN.

Intronaut made the following statement:
“Due to some recent activity that we as individuals have zero tolerance for, Danny Walker is no longer the drummer in Intronaut.
The remaining three members will continue to write and prepare to record our 6th full length album.
We’re not sure who will play drums in our band from now on. If you’re out there, shout us a holler. [email protected]”
Walker has denied these accusations as he believes she did this to herself:
“I wanted to wait to make a statement here, but there’s some serious allegations of me being a woman beater. My recent ex had a friend of ours post pictures of her with a black eye which was self inflicted. She’s doing everything she can to create a smear campaign and it’s working. She’s involving all my bands and trying to ruin my music career. I’m really seeing who my real friends are. Thank you to all who have taken my side. Enough is enough. If you have questions and or concerns about this feel free to message me, but this is out of hand! I’d love to get to the bottom of this. There are always two sides to every story. Instead of drawing your own conclusions maybe listen. Thanks and hope we can all get past this. I will be doing what I can take legal action. I am literally in tears.”
