Cynic have had turbulent time over the past few years even leading to a bit of a messy break up at a point. Ultimately, they came back to but there has been another significant change – drummer and co-founder Sean Reinert is leaving the line-up.

He had the following to say of this:


“Today I post with a heavy heart, but also a lightened spirit. A settlement has been reached between Paul and I in regards to Cynic. I am unable to disclose any of the details regarding this agreement but I am at peace with the arrangement. I am going to step aside from Cynic and continue with my personal projects – Paul is going to continue with Cynic and his.

I want to take this last Facebook post as an opportunity to humbly thank all of the musicians, engineers, technicians, companies, booking agents, managers, crew, press, labels and friends that I’ve worked with (and will likely continue to) over this past 30-year span.

Most of all – I would like to thank the fans, who to this day still blow me away with their loyalty and love. You’ve always been the inspiration and the fuel for the machine!

To Paul, I sincerely wish him and the musicians he hires nothing but the best.”


Likewise, we wish the best to all parties as they continue on their journeys of life and music.
