The new EP will be released on November 11th, 2011 (US) and November 15th, 2011 (Europe).

Forefathers of Progressive Metal Cynic have recorded a new EP entitled Carbon-Based Anatomy, to be released on November 11th in Europe (November 15th in North America). Contrary to last year's Re-Traced, this new EP exclusively consists of brand new material.
Cynic are still busy working on writing new material. Guitarist/vocalist Paul Masvidal issued the following update on the forthcoming release:
"I've been working away in the home studio writing lots of new songs and keeping off the grid to stay creatively focused. Apologies for having been a bit reclusive in our digital age of informational abundance! It's safe to say that Cynic already has plenty of material for a new record, but something keeps the inspiration going to write more. I feel like I'm on for the ride and just seeing what manifests as a result of sitting on the train and looking out the window. As we move further along and closer to 'destination recording', the album will start to shape itself and the appropriate songs will be chosen.
US metallers Cynic have issued the following update on their official website:
"Dear Cynic Fans,
We're announcing a change in the band's lineup this winter. After much soul-searching and discussion, Cynic will say goodbye to bassist Robin Zielhorst and guitarist Tymon Kruidenier. This decision was reached mutually, with great respect for each other as people and the work that we've done over the past 2-3 years. The logistical challenges of maintaining a band that is half based in The Netherlands and the other half in the United States (drummer Sean Reinert and guitarist Paul Masvidal live in California), has become unworkable. The pre-production stages for Cynic's next release have just begun and it seemed like an appropriate time to define the next chapter of the band. The new Cynic release is coming in summer 2011 on the Season Of Mist label.
US metallers Cynic have issued the following update on their MySpace blog;
"Dear Cynic family,
We'd like to thank you guys for making our first ever US headlining tour a great success and a lot of fun for us personally! Not only did we have a great time performing a set list this extensive, there was also a real family vibe going on behind the scenes between us, our crew and the guys from Intronaut and Dysrhythmia.
As we are wrapping up our touring cycle for Traced In Air and Re-Traced with this successful tour, it's time to get ready for album number 3! The first baby steps into this gigantic process are being taken right now, creating little embryos of songs that will turn into fully fledged Cynic tunes over the course of the following months, exciting!
Decibel Magazine and Cynic are proud to announce the inaugural Hall of Fame tour. The "Hall of Fame" tour, titled Re-Traced/Re-Focused Live, will see progressive metal icons Cynic perform their first album Focus in its entirety, along with tracks from the group's lauded second album, Traced in Air, and more. Direct support comes from progressive masters Intronaut and Dysrhythmia.
"We're not only excited about this "Hall Of Fame" tour with Decibel, we're committed to giving Cynic fans a unique and memorable concert experience unlike ever before," says Cynic frontman/guitarist Paul Masvidal. "Focus will be performed in its entirety from start to finish, along with Traced in Air and beyond. It's going to be a journey directly into Cynic's pulsating, vibrant heart."
