Official press release:

Progressive music icon Cynic will be embarking on a Latin American headlining tour with support from tech death label-mate Beyond Creation. The journey will kick off on April 14 in Sao Paulo, BR and will then trek through 10 cities, concluding on April 27 in Mexico City, MX. The full run of dates can be found below while venues will be revealed at a later date.


Cynic be celebrating the 30th anniversary of 'Focus' by performing the seminal album in its entirety while also paying homage to late members Sean Reinert and Sean Malone. More anniversary and memorial tribute shows will be announced in the near future!

This announcement comes after Cynic's momentous return to the live stage for the first time in eight years! The band performed a sold-out secret show in Los Angeles, CA before embarking on the 70,000 Tons of Metal Cruise in Januar 2023! Later in the year, CYNIC will then perform at the illustrious ProgPower USA festival on September 6 in Atlanta, GA!

The new live lineup will feature Paul Masvidal on vocals and guitars, Max Phelps (Exist, Death to All) on additional guitars and vocals, Brandon Giffin (The Faceless, The Zenith Passage) on bass, Matt Lynch (Nova Collective, Intronaut) on drums & percussion, and Zeke Kaplan on the keyboard! Lynch has been drumming with Cynic since 2015 & appeared on the band's latest full-length, 'Ascension Codes,' as well as the 2018 single "Humanoid." Additionally, Phelps, having also appeared on 'Ascension Codes,' and Giffin have previously toured with Cynic during the band's 'Carbon Based Anatomy' and 'Kindly Bent to Free Us' tours. CYNIC's latest release Ascension Codes is a remarkably far-reaching work, and if nothing else, a clear indication that they have landed in a place of mastery. The album, paradoxically, acts as both swan song and rebirth.
