10-12-2020

CYNIC will release its new full-length album, “Ascension Codes”, on November 26 via Season Of Mist. The band is now sharing the first single, “Mythical Serpents”.

Stream “Mythical Serpents” below.

CYNIC mastermind Paul Masvidal comments: “I invite you to sit back, close your eyes, and listen to ‘Mythical Serpents’ as a fully realized piece of music. No phones or screens necessary, just the power of sound communicating directly into the ears of your heart.

“In the coming weeks, CYNIC will be revealing further details on the constellation that is ‘Ascension Codes’, including a ‘Mythical Serpents’ animated video, featuring the artwork of Martina Hoffmann and Robert Venosa. Stay tuned.”

Michael Berberian, president and founder of Season Of Mist, adds: “I have, by now, released close to one thousand albums. None have been more dramatic, none have even been more difficult than this one. I can’t listen to ‘Ascension Codes’ without goose bumps, a mixed feeling of pride — because it’s a musical milestone, but it also contains a lingering layer of sadness. I hear Paul’s pain on this record. I can feel it, I can touch it. But it’s transcended. ‘Art is to console those who are broken by life,’ said Van Gogh. Here is a demonstration of that.”

CYNIC has unveiled the artwork for “Ascension Codes”, which has been created by Martina Hoffmann.
