“Humanoid” is Cynic’s first song in 4 years.
Cynic has released a new song called “Humanoid”. You can listen to it below.
“Humanoid” was recorded by frontman Paul Masvidal, bassist Sean Malone and the band’s new drummer Matt Lynch. Adam ‘Nolly’ Getgood was in charge of mixing.
Paul 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.”
Sean Mallone commented about the drumming of Matt Lynch:
“Nolly’s approach is equal parts expertise and intuition. Working with him was quick, clear, but most of all, musical.”
The cover artwork for Humanoid features a detail from the painting Ayahuasca Dream by Robert Venosa, Cynic’s longtime collaborator who unfortunately passed away in 2011.
