Cynicn has released a digital single titled “Humanoid,” the first new track from the progressive rock pioneers since their 2014 record Kindly Bent To Free Us. The track was recorded by lead singer Paul Masvidal and bassist Sean Malone and marks the debut of the band’s new drummer, Matt Lynch.

Frontman 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.”
