CYNIC Premiere First New Song In Four Years: "Humanoid"

New Cynic is good.

New Cynic is good.

Now that Cynic have resolved their legal issues, and Sean Reinert has officially departed from the band, the band is moving forward with new music.

The band, which is currently frontman/guitarist Paul Masvidal, bassist Sean Malone and new drummer Matt Lynch, released a new song today called "Humanoid." The track was mixed by former Periphery bassist Adam “Nolly” Getgood. Listen below.

Paul Masvidal offered these comments about the track:

 "'Humanoid' is a portrait of contrasts, like those between struggle and stillness, or the immediate against the limitless. Our Stargate is planet Earth — consciousness, the transmitter. We, sentient creatures of light, are alive now — on a sphere, floating in a galaxy fixed amidst the infinite. It's quite miraculous to be aware of this, and it invokes a sense of urgency and empowerment that is unlike anything else."

No official release date or title for a new album have been released yet, but we'll keep you posted if we hear anything.
