U.S. based prog metal act Suspyre is releasing the band's fourth full-length album this year, tentatively titled "The Cycle." In addition to the music, which is a fusion of metal, jazz, and modern classical, the band is making a DVD that will include candid studio outtakes, a unique look into the making of the music, some live footage, and other material. Suspyre is currently running a Kickstarter campaign seeking donations to make physical copies of the album instead of going with a digital-only release. The band commented:

"Since we decided to release this package without label support, we need fans to help us raise money. Pledging $10 gets you a digital version of the album, and also guarantees the band gets the money upfront so we can afford to duplicate the CDs and DVDs. Instead of a bureaucracy controlling the fate of this release, the fans will.

"If you want the physical CD/DVD release, $25 will get you that, with our autographs. Pledging $50 will add a brand new Suspyre T-shirt, so you can support us by sporting our logo all day. The design will be released soon!

"Our goal was derived based on what it usually costs to release an album; the price of recording (we buy our own equipment!), artwork, duplication, and advertising all add up quickly! We plan to have the album completed by the end of the year and this is impossible without the support of fans like you.

"Thanks to everyone who helped us out! Remember to 'like' us on Facebook for near-daily updates!"
