The official lyric video for the song “Come On Get Up” can be seen at this location.

Drummer Mike Portnoy (FLYING COLORSTHE WINERY DOGSDREAM THEATERAVENGED SEVENFOLD) quit ADRENALINE MOB in June due to “scheduling conflicts.”

In a recent interview with Brazil’s “Wikimetal”Allen stated about Portnoy‘s departure from ADRENALINE MOB: “He’s been, obviously, real busy with THE WINERY DOGS. The truth of it is we wanna keep working, we wanna keep doing ADRENALINE MOB and we don’t wanna wait around for Mike to have the time [to put into ADRENALINE MOB]. And he doesn’t know when he will have the time again, so that’s really what’s going down. Mike Portnoy was asked to be in the band by myself. Me and Orlando had already written all the material, so [ADRENALINE MOB‘s debut album] ‘Omertá’ was completely finished before Mike joined the act. And it’s a bummer, but he’s got his sights on other things, and he’s not gonna stick around. So we wish him the best of luck, but the MOB‘s gotta go on.”

ADRENALINE MOB released “Covertá”, an eight-track EP featuring cover versions of some of the group’s favorite songs, on March 12.

CYNIC: Official Lyric Video For New Song ‘The Lion’s Roar’

Reposted from Blabbermouth.net

Legendary progressive rock innovators CYNIC — consisting of guitarist/vocalist Paul Masvidal, drummer Sean Reinert and bassist Sean Malone — will release their new album, “Kindly Bent To Free Us”, on February 14, 2014 via Season Of Mist. The CD was produced by CYNIC at L.A.’s Perfect Sound Studios. The effort was engineered by Jason Donaghy (BAND OF HORSESFEISTROB ZOMBIERYAN ADAMS), mixed by R. Walt Vincent (PETE YORNLIZ PHAIRTOMMY KEENE) and mastered by Maor Appelbaum (FATES WARNING, SEPULTURACATHEDRALINQUISITIONHALFORD).

The artwork for “Kindly Bent To Free Us” was created by longtime and sadly late CYNIC artist Robert Venosa.

“Kindly Bent To Free Us” track listing:

01. True Hallucination Speak
02. The Lion’s Roar
03. Kindly Bent To Free Us
04. Infinite Shapes
05. Moon Heart Sun Head
06. Gitanjali
07. Holy Fallout
08. Endlessly Bountiful
09. Earth Is My Witness (deluxe CD book exclusive bonus track)

The official lyric video for the song “The Lion’s Roar” can be seen at this location.

About the new material, 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!”

In a February 2012 interview with Ireland’s Molten magazine, Masvidal described the band’s new music in the following way: “It’s almost like, I don’t know how to explain it, but if I had to put it in a box it’s more sci-fi, futuristic and alien but at the same time very song-driven. It’s kind of like, to me, coming into CYNIC‘s body more. It feels very modern and at the same time it just feels really cool. I’m big in the space. It’s definitely new. It’s not like anything we’ve done before. It’s a new color, a new space. I think people will really take note of even the guitar stuff. I’m really shifting gears, I’m trying things in a different way and the way stuff is played. It’s a new space for CYNIC, for sure. It definitely sounds like us, except completely new.”

CYNIC‘s latest EP, “Carbon-Based Anatomy”, was released in November 2011 via Season Of Mist. The CD artwork was designed by the great Robert Venosa, the artist behind the covers of CYNIC‘s previous releases “Focus”“Traced in Air” and “Re-Traced”.

CYNIC was joined by Brandon Giffin on bass and Max Phelps on guitar and vocals during the group’s North American and European tours in support of “Carbon-Based Anatomy”.
