The following press release has been announced:
Reunited progressive metallers CYNIC, whose 1993 album Focus is regarded as a landmark release in the field of technical/progressive metal, have inked a worldwide deal with France's Season Of Mist Records.
The band is set to enter the studio this summer with Grammy-award winning producer Warren Riker (DOWN, SANTANA) to begin work on it's long-awaited follow-up to Focus. The CD will contain eight songs, and the band is working once again with renowned artist Venosa (who created the unmistakeable cover and visuals for Focus).
A late 2008 release is expected, to be supported by additional live shows, soon to be announced.
Cynic founding members Paul Masvidal (guitar, vocals) and Sean Reinert (drums), who both gained reputation and praise while performing alongside Chuck Schuldiner and DEATH in the recording and touring lineup for the milestone album Human, recently spent time at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida working on the mix for three new demo tracks with producer Jason Suecof (TRIVIUM, CHIMAIRA, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, DEVILDRIVER, etc.).
The three new songs - 'Integral Birth' (which can be heard on the band's MySpace page), 'Evolutionary Sleeper' and 'Adam's Murmur' - led to the return of Focus bassist Sean Malone, who had heard the demo material and was excited by it. Although Sean had been busy as a teacher in another state, he renewed his ties with Masvidal and Reinert and it was decided that Malone would join them both for the recording of the second album, as well as live shows whenever possible.
Rounding out the group's current lineup is Tymon Kruidenier, a talented guitarist out of the Netherlands who will also handle the aggressive vocals.
