CYNIC Offer Update On New Material
We haven't heard any updates from Cynic on their new album progression since February, so I guess the band thought it was time for an update. Earlier this year, they hinted that a new album would be out this year, but it turns out that might not be happening. The band has said that they have hit a huge bit of inspiration and are writing beyond an album's worth of new music and can't stop now. Here is their full update:
There's so much music flowing we'd rather follow each inspiration to its conclusion rather than artificially stop once we have a CD's worth of songs and record; like writing from the inside out. Though the songs are taking shape, we're still exploring this new space, letting the music decide and guide us. We are at its mercy."
In February, frontman Paul Masvidal described the material as so: "…if I had to put it in a box it's more sci-fi, futuristic and alien but at the same time very song-driven. It's kind of like, to me, coming into CYNIC's body more. It feels very modern and at the same time it just feels really cool."
I can't wait to hear what they've come up with. Cynic's two albums, Focus and Traced In Air rank as some of my all-time favorites.
