Cynic Premiere New Song “Humanoid”


Cynic have released a new song by the name of “Humanoid” as a digital single. The track was recorded by the band’s current lineup of frontman/guitarist Paul Masvidal, bassist Sean Malone and new drummer Matt Lynch. Former Periphery bassist Adam “Nolly” Getgood mixed the track. Masvidal commented:

“‘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.”
