Cynic: New Lineup Changes and Other News

Dear Cynic Fans,

We're announcing a change in the band's lineup this winter. After much soul-searching and discussion, Cynic will say goodbye to bassist Robin Zielhorst and guitarist Tymon Kruidenier. This decision was reached mutually, with great respect for each other as people and the work that we've done over the past 2-3 years. The logistical challenges of maintaining a band that is half based in The Netherlands and the other half in the United States (drummer Sean Reinert and guitarist Paul Masvidal live in California), has become unworkable. The pre-production stages for Cynic's next release have just begun and it seemed like an appropriate time to define the next chapter of the band. The new Cynic release is coming in summer 2011 on the Season of Mist label.

Paul Masvidal comments: "Tymon and Robin are great guys whose hard work made it possible for Cynic to get back out on the road and tour the world with Traced In Air. I'm really grateful for their contribution and presence, and look forward to seeing where their talents and music will take them next.

Robin Zielhorst comments: "It has been an honor to play and perform in Cynic. Tymon and I would like to thank Paul and Sean for the opportunity and to especially thank the fans for their support and for warmly welcoming us into the Cynic family. We look forward to seeing you all on the road soon."

Cynic's immediate plan is to continue writing and do pre-production for their new record. They are also working towards a remixed re-release of their classic recording "Focus." Robin and Tymon plan to work on a new release from their band Exivious, which will likely be recorded in Tymon's new soon-to-be completed recording studio

Please direct any inquiries to Cynic's manager Andy Karp at info@artisthaven.net.

Thank you,

Paul & Sean

As sad as this is, I'm glad Cynic will continue on, and Exivious is back from the dead.

Good, Tymon's growls sucked. Robin was alright though.

Well, when you have Tony Teegarden do some of the sickest growls ever on your first album, anybody else is going to suck compared to him. Also, I saw them live in early 2009, and his vocals weren't that great, imo, and I don't think they were very strong on Traced in Air. But he could be better now, idk.
