Legendary progressive rock innovators CYNIC (guitarist/vocalist Paul Masvidal, drummer Sean Reinert, bassist Sean Malone) have revealed the cover art, title and release date of their new album. The highly-anticipated new record is entitled ‘Kindly Bent to Free Us’ and was produced by CYNIC at L.A.’s Perfect Sound Studios.
The album was engineered by Jason Donaghy (BAND OF HORSES, FEIST, ROB ZOMBIE, RYAN ADAMS), mixed by R. Walt Vincent (PETE YORN, LIZ PHAIR, TOMMY KEENE) and mastered by Maor Appelbaum (FATES WARNING, SEPULTURA, CATHEDRAL, INQUISITION, HALFORD).
The artwork for ‘Kindly Bent to Free Us’ has been created by long-time and sadly late CYNIC artist Robert Venosa (R.I.P.) and looks like this:
‘Kindly Bent to Free Us‘ will be released on February 14th. The album will be available as a CD Digipak, a limited edition collector’s box, limited edition double LP, and digitally.
About the new material, drummer Sean Reinert said: “It’s a bold new sound for CYNIC and marks a gigantic leap in the band’s progression. We’ve had a lot of time to let this material develop and gestate, and it finally feels ready to be unleashed on the world. I’ve been in trio mode with Malone and Masvidal flushing out a zillion and one details, and couldn’t be happier about what’s happening with these songs. They are truly alive!”
