The Mighty Cynics ARE back with a New LP and the same fuzzed out mayhem that made their live shows legendary. In 2006/2007 The Cynics were extremely active, playing shows and Festivals in London, Rotterdam, Stockholm, a full tour of Norway, all over Spain, Festival Beat in Italy, a full tour of all of Europe, and even a few acoustic shows which spotlighted the rich song writing talents of the Kastelic/Kostelich team. Never has this talent been more on display than on on the new LP. "HERE WE ARE" is OUT NOW on Get Hip Records. CERTAINLY THIS NEW LP COULD BE RECORDED AT ONE PLACE and ONE PLACE ONLY!! CIRCO PERROTTI with DR. EXPLOSION in GIJON. THE BEST MUSICIANS and BEST STUDIO (all analog) IN THE WORLD! DR. Explosion is the most innovative and HIP producer alive today!! Here's what the cognoscenti of Trash are saying about the new LP: "The Cynics are sure to gain a wider appeal than ever before with their newest album... ...Gregg Kostelich's playing and arrangement here is tightened to such an extent that every influence shines through with infectious clarity.... ....Michael Kastelic's singing is his most expressive in years. The lyrics continue the familiar laments of loneliness, and lost or unobtainable love, but with a surpassing wit and expanded poetic pallette.... ....."Here We Are" proves in musical terms, that the "We" in it's title refers not just to The Cynics themselves, but to their audience as well. The accomplishment of such a feat is not to be underestimated......" GP Colton. Listener/Writer/King of Men Kastelic and Kostelich came out of the Punk Rock Movement in their early teens and into the Real Punk world of Garage rock at the end of the 80's. Since then they have been at the forefront of the Garage Rock scene. Although they were young upstarts compared to The Fleshtones, The Fuzztones, The Lyres, and The Chesterfield Kings, The Cynics have always been regarded as garage rock royalty. Kostelich still owns and runs the Garage rock label Get Hip. Kastelic's wailing screams, his on and offstage antics, and his legendary tequila consumption have made an impression on points all over the globe. THE CYNICS are the loudest, wildest, and most hypnotic live garage band around. If you get a chance to see them in the flesh, DON"T MISS IT! CYNICS LYRICS!!!
